I do understand what you mean till a certain point. The government should not impose the church to marry same sex couples because these are your
beliefs. However, in England the church and state are not separate, so that means when this law comes to pass, churches have to marry same sex
couples. The only solution will be that a new law will come to pas and separate both. Gay or straight couples should have the same rights and
therefore also the right to marry. For me it is important that this law comes to pass and I for one do not care about the church nor do I believe in
God, so you won't see me there. If there will not be any separation, sobeit, as long as it comes to pass. The UK is long overdue!
For every gay person that wishes to marry in front of the church, you should consider, why, as they don't recognize you as a person, so why should you
want to be part of this religion at all??
For all Christians....the world is evolving and so should your religion and perhaps yourself as well. God is for everyone right?
You sound quite like a homophobe by the way!
This goes further than just an issue of marriage there is a wider social component to this. This institution of Marriage is in tatters, divorce is up
and the number of individuals entering into marriage is down. We also allow homosexual couples the same rights as heterosexual couples when it comes
to adoption and even IVF and other means of having children. Where will this stop, what’s next will it be preventing discrimination against those
who wish to marry close relatives or will it be slowly lowering the age of sexual consent, it makes me worry for my children and my grandchildren.
What a contrast in time this is I now live compared to my parents’ generation. Homosexuals will soon be able to get married, have a couple of kids,
then go and get divorced and their kids can spend a couple of months in a young offenders institution then go on the Jeremy Kyle show and moan about
how the cause of their drug addiction is because of “dad and dad’s” divorce.
