Bishop Egan...We are with you! this excellent message to David Cameron.

Bishop Philip Egan says:

"If the prime minister proceeds with his intentions, he will pervert authentic family values, with catastrophic consequences for the well-being and behaviour of future generations. He will smother the traditional Christian ethos of our society and strangle the religious freedom of the Catholic Church in Britain to conduct its mission.

Of course, we will need to wait for the results of the current consultation-exercise. But in the meantime, I would like to ask Mr. Cameron:  What about my rights as a Christian? Will you exempt the Church,  its resources and property, from having to support your  harmful ideology?  Will Catholic schools, societies and institutions be free (and legally safeguarded) to teach the full truth of Christ and the real meaning of life and love?

The institution of marriage has its ups and downs, but will we ever forget that it was the leader of the Conservative Party who finally destroyed marriage as a lasting, loving and life-giving union between a man and a woman?"

Thank you for keeping us informed. Will be praying for all the bishops, that they may all be as courageous and true as Bishop Egan..
