Australian politician raps Cardinal Pell for asking Catholics consistency

Catholic World News - January 10, 2011

The premier of the Australian state of New South Wales has charged that Cardinal George Pell is being “condemnatory and threatening” in his call for politicians to oppose legal recognition of same-sex marriage.

Kristina Keneally said that she was saddened by Cardinal Pell’s public reminders that Catholic politicians should vote in accordance with their religious convictions, and their religious convictions should match their professed Catholic faith.

(A Sunday Telegraph story described Keneally as “a deeply committed Catholics with a Masters degree in religious studies," thereby making the somewhat comical suggestion that her authority to speak on matters of the Catholic faith rivals that of the Archbishop of Sydney.)
