John Deighan, the parliamentary officer of the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland, told a conference in Brussels that even young children are being branded as “bigots” and “Nazis” for daring to openly oppose same-sex “marriage.”
“I know, for example, of children in Scotland, including my own 12-year-old child, who have been branded as ‘Nazis’ and ‘bigots’ because they have dared to disagree with the idea of same-sex marriage,” Deighan said.
Deighan said that homosexualist lobbyists like Stonewall and the Equality Network have created “intense levels of hostility” against anyone who opposes their agenda. “People are increasingly being subjected to manipulation by what I would call the equality lobby,” he said.
“This is a blatant attempt to manipulate the ideas and views of people, including school children, so that they become more intolerant of the Catholic message,” Deighan said. He added that it is “very difficult” to persuade politicians in Scotland to speak out against these developments.
“They are afraid that in doing so they will jeopardise their careers,” he said.
