My only comments on this are as follows:
First, there is no allowance made in any law, existing or awaiting confirmation, that would FORCE any given church or religious building to hold a gay
marriage. The issue being discussed is wether to allow those churches that DO wish to perform such a ceremony, to do so. The government literally have
to have this conversation, and come to a conclusion, if only to bare up under European scrutiny, but again, there is no plan to force churches or
religious organisations to allow such a marriage as those being discussed.
Furthermore, though I have massive hatred for Cameron, and the army of suits and scum which he walks at the head of, I have to confess I am concerned
for his carreer in the party, bearing in mind his statement on the issue earlier today. He said that he thinks the institution of marriage is a
wonderful thing, one which he personally feels that gay people should not be excluded from. Agree with him or not, one has to admit that among his
parties faithful and most dogged supporters, this will have won him precisely no brownie points, being as it is an opinion which many of them would
find contrary to thier own ideas on the matter.
