  1. why would he have to? He’s already praised Welby for “defending marriage” remember?

    Both their churches are viciously opposed to marriage equality (or any GBLT rights for that matter). The “between a man and a woman” is assumed with these 2.

    that is what they mean by marriage and “to promote family values “based on marriage.”” Is just coded language for “family is for married straight folks only”

  2. Those old coots have no moral authority on issues of sexuality or marriage. I couldn’t care less what they have to say.

    Look these people are irrelevant to the world going forward. They are part of history.

    The people are voting with their feet..says it all really so don’t let this tribe annoy us.

    Inclusive, diverse, caring, supportive is what we stand for.

    They squabble amongst themselves seeing who can wear the prettiest dress.

    World move on…

  5. Well, by all appearances Deluded Francis, the Pixie’s Representative on Earth, is scared of putting a foot wrong, and that’s good.

    May Deluded Welby take note, and return to Britain intent upon simply saying his prayers unto the Pixie and keeping his mouth shut on anything to do with Equal Marriage!

      How would you feel if someone called you a “faggot” or some other pejorative term?

      You would most doubt find it offensive and rightly so. Why do you then think it is acceptable to use terms like “Pixie” in a manner that is clearly intended to offend.

      You should be ashamed of yourself and your manifest hatred and bigotry.

  6. IN MEETING WITH ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY, THE POPE DOES NOT SPECIFY MARRIAGE AS BETWEEN MAN AND WOMAN

    is a bit like saying :

    IN MEETING WITH ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY, THE POPE DOES NOT SPECIFY EATING AS PUTTING FOOD IN ONE’S ARMPIT

    They know that marriage can only take place between a man and a woman – anything else is a contradiction.Just as ‘eating’ can only involve putting food in ones mouth and digesting it – as opposed to ‘equal eating’ (putting food in one’s armpit ! ) .Same-sex pseudo marriage is an oxymoron .

    1. your existence is an example of moronic life

  7. Old men. Silly costumes. Outdated views. Fading institutions. Why do we continue to give these people credence?

  8. the same churches that treat women as second class citizens re being religious leaders are the same churches so virulently opposed to marriage equality

    Catholic, right wing evangelical xtians (anything but), Jewish orthodox – the aholes who are behind the mess re not creating a palestinian state etc

    And of course Islam

    Anglican church is better – they do allow women to be priests and there are some openly gay riests

    They dont allow women to be bishops

    IMO Welby in a couple years will come cryiing to the parliament to allow it to do same sex marriages / blessings

    It will be a matter of survivial in a modern world

  9. Francis – just another boneheaded priest trying to find reasons to discriminate against gay people

    Maybe he should be ranting at the people destroying marriage – the str8s with their 50% divorce rate and the 39% of american kids growing up in single parent families

    And be glad that gay people want to support the instition of marriage.

    The catholic church is the Islam of the west and the only question is which one over the centuries has murdered more millions of people
