Survey Supporting Same-Sex Marriage Branded ‘Flawed’ by Catholic Church
The Roman Catholic Church has dismissed a poll suggesting the majority of Scots support same-sex marriage.
An Ipsos Mori survey found 68% of 1,003 people asked agreed that religious organisations should be able to marry same-sex couples if they want to.
The survey was carried out for the Equality Network, LGBT Youth Scotland and the Scottish Youth Parliament.
But a church spokesman said asking whether people support the right to do something solicits a positive response.
Good grief. No doubt the Catholic church would have been happier with a more neutrally worded question, like “Should the perverted filth of sodomy and lesbian harlotry be encouraged with state recognition in open defiance of God?”
