FROM BBC -
The Catholic Church in Scotland has stepped up its campaign against proposals to allow gay marriage.
The Archbishop of Glasgow, Mario Conti, has written to every parish in Scotland, urging all Catholics to oppose the planned legislation.
He said the Scottish government did not have a mandate to “reconstruct society on ideological grounds”.
The Scottish government is holding a consultation on whether same-sex marriage should be introduced.
Archbishop Conti has urged Catholics to complete a declaration in defence of marriage.
