Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor...

...has a superb message in today's press:

"In the run-up to the last election, David Cameron led us to believe that the strengthening of marriage as an institution was one of his important objectives; and the Conservative Party's manifesto, which made no mention of "gay marriage", included a proposed tax break for married couples. Nothing has been heard of the latter proposal, and instead of action to strengthen marriage we have the proposal to abandon the traditional understanding of marriage on the basis of a "consultation" which explicitly excluded the possibility of a negative result. Protestations that this is all fundamentally "conservative" ring a bit hollow. 
It is difficult not to wonder how far the Prime Minister is someone whose steadiness of purpose can be relied on" 

Just so.
