The Archbishop of Glasgow has stepped up a campaign against gay marriage by warning any change in the law was “at our peril”.
Mario Conti said the Catholic Church will actively fight against the previously “unthinkable” issue which was being considered in a “largely post-Christian society”.
He also claimed the Scottish Government does not have a mandate to “reconstruct society on ideological grounds”.
The Government is holding a consultation on whether same-sex marriage should be introduced. A similar debate is taking place south of the border.
