Urgent: Catholic Postcard Campaign will be Treated as “One Response”

Posted by Joseph on 21 November, 2011

It has been confirmed that the Scottish Government will treat the postcards sent by Scottish Catholics in opposition to the powerful campaign to redefine marriage to include homosexual unions as “one response”.

From The Scottish Catholic Observer:

Overwhelming support for the Catholic Church’s postcard campaign against the legalisation of same-sex ‘marriage’ has been dented by the Scottish Government’s policy to treat the 14,000 plus responses as one submission in the consultation.

The Catholic Church’s parliamentary office has already received more than 14,000 postcards opposing the Scottish Government’s plans to redefine marriage but it emerged this week that the government’s consultation guidelines mean this will be viewed as a single submission.

Mr Deighan said he understood submissions to the consultation were currently running at two to one against same-sex ‘marriage’ and that he believed the Church was winning the argument in spite of the decision on the postcard campaign.

For this reason I would ask you – as a matter of urgency – to make an individual submission to the Scottish Government’s consultation on same-sex ‘marriage’. The Christian Institute has set up a website to simplify the rather tortuous process of submitting a response to the Scottish Government. Their simplified on-line response form can be found here.

Alternatively, you can download an even simpler response form, which contains the two most important questions, as a Word document: Consultation Response Form – Single Page. You can either fill in the electronic copy and email it to sandra.jack@scotland.gsi.gov.uk or you can print it off, fill it in, and send it to the following address:

Sandra Jack
2W St. Andrew’s House
Edinburgh EH1 3DG

Please make the effort to submit an individual response to the consultation. Please ask as many people as you can to also submit their responses to this consultation.

This is our chance to remove the justification from the Scottish Government to redefine marriage and, thus, fatally undermine the natural family. It is clear that the Scottish Government wishes to pretend that in pushing for same-sex ‘marriage’ that it is merely heeding the wishes of the overwhelming majority of the Scottish people. This is simply not true.

What we are seeing is an agenda being driven from the top down by unelected special interest groups within the United Nations and the European Union. This is why our politicians will do everything in their power to avoid a referendum on this subject. They know that they would lose.

Let us do everything we can to protect our families and our beautiful, little country from this ‘big push’ in the War against the Family which is war against all civilisation founded on the Moral Law.

We are stronger than they want us to think.
