Priest questions why twice-divorced Boris Johnson was allowed to remarry in Catholic church

32

Some Catholics have questioned why the twice-divorced British prime minister was allowed to remarry in a Catholic church.

Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds got married at a private ceremony on Saturday, May 29, in front of a handful of family and friends at Catholic Westminster Cathedral.

But some have demanded to know why the PM, who was previously married to Allegra Mostyn-Owen for six years followed by a 27-year marriage to Marina Wheeler, was able to remarry in the church.

Catholic canon law does not allow a divorcee to remarry in the church if their former spouse is still alive.

Catholic priest Father Mark Drew, who said he’s had to deny his own divorced congregants the opportunity to remarry in church, questioned why Boris Johnson was allowed to wed in the Catholic church.

He wrote: ‘Can anyone explain to me how “Boris” Johnson, who left the Catholic Church while at Eaton and is twice divorced, can be married at Westminster Cathedral, while I have to tell practicing Catholics in good faith who want a second marriage in Church that it’s not possible?’

However, some say neither of Boris Johnson’s last weddings were Catholic ceremonies and could be seen as invalid in the eyes of the church, meaning his recent marriage is technically his first.

  1. Considering Boris Johnson, I am now a widow, as my third husband passed away from a heart attack. When we talked to my preacher at the Baptist church where we were to be married, he asked me about my two previous marriages. Both ended in divorce due to adultry on my husband’s part. God says in the the Bible that he hates divorce, save for fornication. No one knows what’s gone on in another’s life, and I think Britan is the worst to try and tear others up. I also think Kate has torn into Meaghan, as she is jealous of not being the queen on the trio. There was an article where she made a pass at Harry before he met Meghan, and he rejected her. This was pulled so fast it would make your head spin. I think someday all the truth will come out, and maybe The Susexxes can live in peace.
