The head of the Catholic church in Scotland has shunned the government over gay marriage. Cardinal Keith O'Brien has suspended talks with the government, requesting that any communication is dealt with through officials.

Although the Scottish government have agreed to phase in gay marriage by 2015, Cardinal O'Brien has been quoted as saying that homosexuality is an "aberration like slavery or abortion".

The cardinal's spokesman, Peter Kearney, said: "Cardinal O'Brien is really keen that the perspective and the position of the Catholic church is conveyed to the Scottish government, but he isn't convinced that he necessarily has to do that in person."

This is just one more to add to the list of Church leaders who are speaking up against gay marriage, but the government are keen to push through the bill.
