'Bigot' award for UK's most senior Cardinal

Britain's most senior Catholic, Cardinal Keith O'Brien, was named Stonewall's Bigot of the Year last night, despite threats from Barclays and Coutts to withdraw their sponsorship of the awards over the category.

Cardinal O'Brien was "honoured" for his outspoken attacks on proposals to legalise same-sex marriage at the gay and lesbian campaign group's annual awards. (© Independent News Service)
