A divine sign the Catholic church should change its views on same sex marriage.

A sign from above, surely.

This wonderful photo was taken yesterday afternoon, a big, bright gay-pride rainbow, right above St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney.

Could anything give a clearer indication that the Catholic Church needs to change its views on same-sex-marriage than a bona fide ‘finger-of-God,’ appearing over the certified ‘house-of-God?’

Clearly, even God is onboard. Photo by James Fitzgerald.

The gorgeous image was especially poignant, after a ‘Pastoral Letter’ from the Catholic Bishops of Australia was sent home with school kids attending Catholic Institutions this week.

The letter declares, members of the Catholic Church “deplore injustices perpetrated upon people because of religion, race, sex, age etc.” And yet, Church officials continue to fail to recognise the legitimacy same-sex marriage.

To support same-sex marriage is to undermine the ‘very soul’ of matrimony, the leaflet states. According to The Catholic Bishops of Australia, marriage should only be between a man and a woman:

“Their physical, spiritual, psychological and sexual differences show they are meant for each other, their union makes them whole, and through their union ‘in one flesh’ they together beget children who are ‘flesh of their flesh’. They share the sameness of humanity but enjoy the difference of their masculinity and femininity, being husband and wife, paternity and maternity.”

Well, it appears even God is calling BS on that one.

What do you think about this picture? A sign from above?

The majority of Australians support same-sex marriage. It’s our politicians who don’t.
