TRADCATKNIGHT: NOVUS ORDO: Ursula Halligan: 'I want gay marriage in church - my love is not evil'
Former TV3 political correspondent Ursula Halligan has said that, as a "Catholic" gay person, she wants the Church to provide full sacramental marriage for same-sex couples. Ms Halligan was speaking to the Irish Independent at a conference for " Catholic" reform groups at the weekend ahead of the World Meeting of Families (WMOF) in Dublin in August. She said the Church's teaching on same-sex relationships was "deeply insulting and offensive". "As a gay person, I don't want pastoral care from the Church. Pastoral care only brings comfort to the Church," she said.
