Archbishop Nichols said that the proposed regulations, designed to ensure equal treatment for gays, could mean the end of the Church's co-operation with the Government in providing a range of welfare services.It amazes me that the Catholic Church would still try to flex is flabby arm of power to put down gay and lesbian people. God knows that helping the poor is less important than those terrible gays proclaiming love and loyalty for life.
That's right, it means standing up and proclaiming that certain people should be discriminated against and do not deserve that same rights as others!
Ann Widdecombe, the former Conservative minister, said that the proposals spelled the "end of freedom of conscience in our country".
"They create a hierarchy of rights and whenever a homosexual right comes up against any other right the homosexual right prevails," she said, adding that the Government "seems to have no clue practising a religion means more than going to church".
What would Jesus do, help the poor and needy or stand up against gay people?
