An oddball in The Sunday Telegraph yesterday:
SIR – Cardinal O’Brien asks “Can a word [marriage] whose meaning has been understood in every society throughout history suddenly be changed to mean something else?”
However he has overlooked the Married Women’s Property Act 1882, which significantly changed the meaning of marriage in England and Wales. If it has been done before, it can be done again. Using an argument as flawed as that, how can the Cardinal expect his views to be taken seriously?
