Ban gay marriage?

Ban Gay Marriage
Published: 5th February 2013 - Category: Civil Partnership Agreements - Author: Lynne Bastow

I am listening to the debate in Parliament in the background and I am bored now.

I haven’t been to a wedding for ages. Marriage is on the decline. More and more people are choosing to live together. David Cameron is trying to encourage marriage in his Big Society so it is not surprising that he supports gay marriage.

Seems that this is a generation thing. Older people object more.

Civil Partnership Agreement sounds boring. How do they refer to each other “My civil partner?”

Is it logical to ban gay marriage? I think not. The argument about sexual intercourse I find especially bizarre. You don’t have to be married to have sexual intercourse so holding this out as a pre-requisite for marriage is, to me, a form of discrimination.

This is the last vestige of religious oppression to my mind. On Radio 4 this morning they interviewed a woman in her 70s who had been a slave in a Catholic Convent Laundry until she was 23. The cruelty she described was heart breaking. The Catholic Church needs to focus on spreading kindness and sorting out their problems. Religion has got a lot of bad press recently. The Church of England needs to embrace all members of our society and reverse its decline in numbers.

Gay marriage – A marker for equality… I agree.
