Church pollutes same-sex row

Published 21/10/2011 | 08:00

I FEAR support from the Catholic Church is in danger of polluting opposition to same-sex marriage.

A church rocked by often substantiated charges of child sex-abuse by its priests can expect little public credibility for teachings on other sexual matters.

There is clear irony in an organisation riddled with child-sex abusers opposing same-sex marriage.
