Britain’s most senior Catholic cardinal says gay marriage is like slavery

I wonder what he thinks pedophilia is like? Actually, don’t answer that.

From the Telegraph:

[Cardinal Keith O'Brien said countries which legalise gay marriage are “shaming themselves” by going against the “natural law,” and should not consider their actions “progress”.

] wrote: “Imagine for a moment that the Government had decided to legalise slavery but assured us that ‘no one will be forced to keep a slave’.

“Would such worthless assurances calm our fury? Would they justify dismantling a fundamental human right? Or would they simply amount to weasel words masking a great wrong?”

He has now defended his comments, saying: “I think it’s a very, very good example of what might happen on our own country in the present time.”

Hmm. Like slavery. Except with slavery innocent people are being hurt, and it’s certainly not consensual. It’s also not exactly based on mutual love. Slavery is in some ways like pedophilia, in fact – innocents are being hurt, it’s not consensual, and it’s not based on love.  Yet some old white men would do anything to protect their right to practice it.

Like any of us should care what a church that aids and abets the rape of small children thinks about morality.
