Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

The English Oppression of Catholics Continues

December 9th, 2009, Promulgated by Dr. K

From the Catholic News Service:

“The Catholic bishops of England and Wales said they could be at risk of prosecution under a proposed law unless they accept women, sexually active gays and transsexuals as candidates to the priesthood.

They made their claims in a briefing for Catholic members of the House of Lords, Britain’s upper political chamber, ahead of a scheduled Dec. 15 debate on the Equality Bill, which aims to stamp out discrimination in the workplace.

The bishops said the bill defines priests as employees rather than officeholders. Under the terms of the bill, the church would be immune from prosecution only if priests spend more than 51 percent of their time in worship or explaining doctrine. “

I’d imagine that many progressives out there are rooting for this bill. Please pray for the Catholic presence in England.
