Australian Catholics launch petition to protect marriage
Catholic World News - December 09, 2010
Australian Catholic lay groups have joined with the Sydney archdiocese in calling upon parliament members to support traditional marriage.
Lay leaders have launched a petition—with the vocal support of Sydney’s Cardinal George Pell—asking lawmakers to “protect the unique institution of marriage as traditionally understood and actually lived as the complementary love between a man and a woman.” The petition is being circulated in Catholic parishes, with the faithful asked to join in the effort.
