Four priests, one who has now left the church, have accused Scotland’s Cardinal Keith O’Brien of ‘inappropriate behavior’ over 30 years.
The Cardinal’s spokesman has said their claims are contested. He is apparently taking legal advice.
O’Brien has previously compared gay marriage to slavery, claiming it is a ‘violation of human rights’ and slammed its planned introduction by the Scottish and parliament and Westminster as ‘madness’.
According to The Observer, which broke the story, the four are all based in the diocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh.
