I wonder who the Catholic church think they are actually representing with this stand?
Perhaps they should actually consult with their parishioners before taking a bigoted stand against a minority in the community. I very much doubt most Christian church goers would support this stance.
The new testament is all about tolerance and understanding of others. The idea that one section of the community can be legally discriminated against is quite disgusting.
Anyone remember the Nazis?
In Scotland we should be completely against discrimination and every political party should support the removal of discriminatory laws. I was very proud of the Scottish Parliament for ridding us of Section 2A aka Section 28 and I wish they would show a bit more leadership this this time as well.
It is morally wrong to discriminate between married and unmarried people in the 21st century no matter what their sexual orientation. Those who are prepared to justify this are not true Christians and they don't represent the attitude of the New Testament which basically boils down to 'treat others as you would like to be treated yourself'.
It's at times like these I'm glad I decided to become an atheist.
