Cardinal Condemns Gay "Weddings"

THE leader of Scotland's Roman Catholics will use his New Year message to condemn gay "weddings".

Civil unions between gay and lesbian couples became legal in the United Kingdom this month and Cardinal Keith O'Brien will claim that by allowing same-sex unions, Scottish ministers have "condoned and endorsed trends in society that are ruinous of family life".

The Cardinal will also blast the recent move by the Scottish Parliament to make divorce easier. Under the new law, couples will have to wait only a year for uncontested divorces.

The cardinal will say: "Sadly, we live at a time when the truth of marriage and family is obscured and distorted"It is not without reason that human societies throughout history and across cultures have flourished only when they have built their human relationships on the rock of marriage.
