Firstly, and I only say this intuitively, I believe this may well backfire.
Secondly, in the Ekklesia article there was a quote from an ‘insider’ that really struck a chord with me:
“Trying to impose Church teaching on wider society is a mistake, just as it would be a mistake if the civil authorities tried to force the Church to comply with actions that go against its conscience. We cannot have it both ways.”
Like it or not, this makes sense to me.
What do you think?
