Posted by Kendall Harmon

From here:
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has responded to the Government consultation on same-sex marriage.

In his accompanying letter to the Home Secretary, the Vice-President of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, Archbishop Peter Smith says:

"In the interest of upholding the uniqueness of marriage as a civil institution for the common good of society, we strongly urge the Government not to proceed with legislative proposals which will 'enable all couples, regardless of their gender to have a civil marriage ceremony'".
