A Message for Married Catholics from Archbishop Vincent Nichols
Blogged by James Preece on 19th October 2009
Archbishop Vincent Nichols has sent a clear message to Married Catholics...
In July Terry Prendergast hit the headlines for his opinions which the Bishop's Conference's own spokesperson said "are clearly not a reflection of the Church's teaching". Three months later Terry Prendergast is still the head of Marriage Care, taking your money from the collection plate and using it to undermine the Christian vision of marriage.
In three months, Archbishop Nichols who is the president of Marriage Care has done nothing. Message received and understood.
Now we know where we stand.
After speaking with priests, receiving several emails and considering the comments below I have removed the offending image. My view remains that Archbishop Nichols has stuck his fingers up to married Catholics everywhere and that my image is nowhere near as shocking as the reality it reflects.
Ella has expressed a desire that this be a "family friendly blog" and I agree with her. In future, I promise I will keep things clean.
If anybody has a suggestion for an a more appropriate graphic then let me know and I'll see what I can do.
