The Syro- Malabar church orders investigation
Why the secularists who call such weddings as ‘love’ are silent now ? Why are they not protesting against the church for this, or is it that the Church’s protest is justified; but when Hindus protest against this as ‘love jihad’ then they feel it is unjustified ?
Kochi (Kerala)- On 9th November, a Catholic woman married a Muslim man at the Kadavanthra St Joseph Church under the order of the Syro- Malabar Church. The couple’s photograph of the wedding was also published in a local newspaper.
Due to the protests raised against this wedding Mar Mathew Vaniyakizhakkel, a bishop attending the wedding and the priest who conducted the ceremony had to apologise. As per the rules of The Syro-Malabar Church inter-faith weddings are illegitimate. Cardinal Mar George Alencherry has ordered an inquiry and asked the archbishop of Ernakulam-Angamali diocese Mar Antony Kariyil to submit a report.
