One of Canada’s most distinguished priests, the retired archbishop of Toronto, the Most Rev. Terence Finlay, has been stripped of his license to officiate at marriages because he presided at the marriage of a lesbian couple. Such a marriage is legal in this country. Nor was Archbishop Finlay in any way coerced into officiating. In fact, one of the partners is an old friend of the Archbishop. He had known her since she was a little girl.
Archbishop Finlay explained that out of a “long journey of love, friendship, support with this particular person and her partner” he came to the conclusion “that their love for one another was part of God’s divine love and it was appropriate that it be deeply blessed.”
Does that sound to you like someone who should be forbidden to marry people?
