Vatican newspaper praises cardinal’s opposition to same-sex marriage

Catholic World News - August 22, 2012

L’Osservatore Romano has published an editorial praising Cardinal Keith O’Brien’s actions opposing the prospective legalization of same-sex marriage in Scotland.

The cardinal’s decision to break off talks with a government bent on legalizing same-sex marriage is “a symbolic action, but one that is eloquent and effective,” the Vatican newspaper says.

“Cardinal O'Brien once more raises his voice in defense of civil society,” the newspaper adds. “His stance is not Catholic but simply one of a civil nature. The cardinal upholds reason and common sense.”
