A Scottish bishop has said that the Catholic Church in Scotland has missed a “huge and well-orchestrated conspiracy” by homosexual activists, the Scotsman reports.
Joseph Devine, the Bishop of Motherwell, said the Catholic community did not know what it was doing in response to such activism. He warned that the gay lobby – which he labeled "the opposition" – had mounted "a giant conspiracy" to shape public policy.
“We neglect the gay movement at our peril,” Bishop Devine added.
Bishop Devine delivered his remarks on Friday in a lecture titled “Sectarianism and Secularism: Bugbears for the Catholic Church in Scotland.” The lecture was part of the fourth of the Gonzaga lectures held at St. Aloysius’ College in Glasgow.
