Earlier, he told the BBC's 'Today' programme that...
"Some legislation, however well intended, in fact does create a new kind of morality, a new kind of norm - as [the Equality Act] does.
It does seem to me we are having a new norm for what marriage is, because I think normally children should be brought up by a father and a mother and I think that we hold that that is extremely important.
The government has a right to legislate and homosexual couples are also able to adopt in other agencies but we want to hold onto this principle [i.e. to be able to discriminate against people who are an abomination to 'God' whilst we are being funded by the public Exchequer.]"
Cardinal Murphy-O'Cunt continued by claiming that the move would force religious people out of public life.Not before fucking time, you manipulative lying shithead.
If I had my way, the State would be completely secular, and all you greedy religious bastards would receive no privileges whatsoever.
But the real issue is deliberately being glossed over by these duplicitous religious swindlers, because Section 57 of the Act grants exemption to "...organisations the purpose of which is:
* to practice a religion or belief,
* to advance a religion or belief,
*to teach the practice and principles of a religion or belief, etcectera
However, if an organisation claims exemption under S57, it cannot expect to be funded out of public funds - and that is the real reason for the opposition to the law from these mendacious bigots.
The irony of all this is that it is illegal to discriminate against these hypocritical cunts on the grounds of their ignorant, superstitious, bigoted religious beliefs, but they want the right to discriminate against homosexuals on completely spurious religious grounds.
Enough to make any decent person fulminate with rage.
But, hey, we're not supposed to criticise them - any more than we are supposed to criticise the fact that the majority of young Muslims living in this country would welcome the imposition of Sharia law.
Long live the revolution is what I say!
