Canadian Archbishop Terrence Prendergast warned Minnesotans about the effects of legalizing same-sex marriage in Canada. Minnesota is poised to vote on a referendum to preserve pro-gender marriage in the November 6 elections.
“You are summoned to a tribunal where you cannot have a defense lawyer and you cannot record the proceedings nor have a witness present. The people judging and prosecuting you have no legal qualifications. The accusation is ambiguous, having to do with ideas the state does not like. The penalties could include fines equal to several thousands of dollars, public recanting, and rehabilitation classes. You are a bishop. This is not China. This is Canada. The offense: explaining why homosexual relations are a sin.”
So began the address of Ottawa Archbishop Terrence Prendergast to St. Thomas University Law School Monday, October 8, where he laid out the alarming consequences of same-sex “marriage” from the Canadian experience.
Archbishop Prendergast also expressed his concern for those who, thanks to the legalization of gay “marriage,” “are deceived into destructive lifestyles, approved of and funded by Canadian governments.”
“The Bible is being called hate literature,” he said. “Clearly, the Church is in the crosshairs. There will be growing pressure for the Church to comply or to be shut down.”For more information, see Minnesota for Marriage.
Defend pro-gender marriage. Because gender matters to everyone, including people with same-sex attraction.
