AU: Catholic Church instructs Followers to Lobby Against Gay Marriage

December 19, 2010

The natural order?  How does the church know the natural order? Is that part of the Papal Infallibility?  You know, like the earth is flat?

THE Catholic Church is instructing parishioners to lobby federal MPs against voting for gay marriage, suggesting they base arguments on the natural order and the importance of a biological relationship with children rather than on marriage being a religious institution. As pressure mounts inside the Labor Party for a change in the party’s policy officially banning such marriages, both the gay lobby and now the Catholic Church are intensifying their efforts to win the debate.

MPs are consulting their constituents after a Greens motion urging politicians to seek the views of their electorates on changing marriage laws was passed last month in the House of Representatives with Labor’s support.
