More than 1,000 Roman Catholic priests have signed a letter voicing fears that same-sex marriage legislation will restrict religious freedoms.
The letter, in the Daily Telegraph, says a law change would “severely restrict” Catholics’ ability to “teach the truth about marriage in schools”.
The Bishop of Portsmouth, the Rt Rev Philip Egan, told the Telegraph: “I am very anxious that when we are preaching in Church or teaching in our Catholic schools or witnessing to the Christian faith of what marriage is that we are not going to be able to do it, that we could be arrested for being bigots or homophobes.”
You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth!
