Crosby-born Catholic leader opposes gay marriage

THE leader of Roman Catholics in England and Wales has urged the faithful to write to their MPs “as soon as possible” to oppose the government’s plans for gay marriage.

The Most Rev Vincent Nichols, the Crosby-born Archbishop of Westminster, called on Roman Catholics to express their views to their constituency MPs “clearly, calmly and forcefully”.

He said one of his concerns about the plans was how children would be taught about the “true nature of marriage” in schools if the law is changed to allow same-sex marriage.

He wrote: “Of course there are many different circumstances to family life.

“But none of this takes away the importance of having a clear vision of marriage and family, based on human nature itself.”
