Scottish Catholic Church Lifts Talking Points From Hate Group To Oppose Marriage Equality

The Scottish Catholic Church relied on discredited research propagated by anti-gay hate groups to oppose same-sex marriage, PinkNews reports. The research, conducted in part by the infamous Paul Cameron, argued that gay relationships “lead to shorter life expectancies” and compared homosexuality to tobacco addiction. The Scottish government is currently considering a legislation which would “allow gay marriages to take place but would take into account some religious opposition to same-sex marriage.”
