Bishops Leaflet on Marriage published

March 11th, 2010 · 6 Comments · LGBT, Same Sex Partnerships

As I mentioned last night the Catholic Bishops have published a leaflet on marriage yesterday.  Except it’s not really about marriage is it?

The full contents are now available to read on their website.

There is loads of stuff in this to poke holes in but let’s not forget that the church are trying to change the message from the mess they have been in for years – well some of them are anyway – it’s no mistake that Diarmuid Martin was not around at the launch of this yesterday – I don’t think he supports the publication or the contents given his previous statements on it.

And the last paragraph is very interesting

What should I do?

Contact your TD or a member of the Seanad.
Write to, email or text your local media.

Debate the issue.
These are important matters about marriage and the family and about respect for freedom of conscience. These proposals should not go unchallenged.
