Scotland, UK: Gay Rights Group Takes Cardinal to Task

Written by scott on March 4th, 2013

After a disgraced Catholic Cardinal admitted to having gay sex with a number of other priests, Stonewall UK is calling for him to apologize for all his homophobic comments over the years, Edge Boston reports:

Stonewall Chief Executive Ben Summerskill said Monday that the group noted “with sadness that the cardinal didn’t find it in him to apologize to gay people, their families and friends for the harm his vicious and cruel language caused.” O’Brien, 74, had been a staunch advocate of church teaching against homosexuality, calling same-sex marriage “a grotesque subversion of a universally accepted human right” and saying that British government plans to legalize same-sex marriage would “shame the United Kingdom in the eyes of the world.”

We’re almost always our own worst enemies.
