The recent vote on marriage in the General Synod of the Church of England was further called into question today when it was revealed that Cardinal Vincent Nichols had voted the wrong way.
Said an Eccleston Square spokesperson: ‘The Cardinal is generally very careful to vote with the majority. He must have been momentarily confused by the fact that the voting machine had three buttons.’
An official of the Synod, however, confirmed to this blog that the Cardinal does not have a vote.
‘He is thought to be a Roman Catholic, and they are well known to be rigid and homophoblic. Their opinion is not worth the attention of the Synod’
The Roman Catholic Church has over 1.27 billion members worldwide.
