Pope criticised for attack on UK Equality Bill

The Pope has faced a backlash after urging Catholic bishops in England and Wales to fight the UK's Equality Bill with "missionary zeal".

Pope Benedict XVI said the bill - which could end the right of the Church to ban gay people from senior positions - "violates natural law".

But gay and human rights campaigners condemned his comments, and Labour MEP Stephen Hughes said he was "appalled".

Gordon Brown said he respected the Pope but commenting would be inappropriate.
Standfast therefore in the Liberty which Christ has made you free
and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
