UK Catholic Church steps up public campaign against same-sex marriage

One million postcards were handed out at masses over the January 26-27 weekend as the Catholic Church in the United Kingdom began final efforts to mobilize opposition to the British government’s Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill now before Parliament. The postcards were designed to be filled in and sent to local members of Parliament, asking them to vote against the bill.

 Archbishop  Peter Smith of Southwark told Catholics that the “time to act is now”. In a letter, Archbishop Smith added that it is important that members of Parliament should be "made aware of the strength of feeling on this issue”.
 
Catholic Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster, who leads the Catholic Church in England and Wales, has also issued a pamphlet warning that senior teachers at Catholic schools could face demotion or the sack if they fail to live according to the teachings of the Catholic Church with regard to sexuality.
