More Than 1,000 Catholic Priests in England Sign Letter Against Gay Marriage Proposal

Say that allowing churches to perform gay marriages could lead to persecution of Catholics


More than 1,000 Catholic priests in England recently signed an open letter warning that proposed gay marriage legislation could reignite "centuries of persecution" for Roman Catholics.

The proposed legislation would allow churches in England and Wales to perform same-sex marriage ceremonies. U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron has backed thegay marriage proposal and has pledged to legalize gay marriage by 2015.
