Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales Responds to the Equal Civil Marriage Consultation

Archbishop Peter Smith
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has responded to the Government consultation on same-sex marriage.
In his accompanying letter to the Home Secretary, the Vice-President of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, Archbishop Peter Smith says:
"In the interest of upholding the uniqueness of marriage as a civil institution for the common good of society, we strongly urge the Government not to proceed with legislative proposals which will 'enable all couples, regardless of their gender to have a civil marriage ceremony'".
