The British clergy are up in arms about government proposals to legalise gay weddings. Much huffing and puffing is occurring, the very sanctity of marriage is threatened and a lot of other nonsensical stuff.
The truth is the church is rattled, it feels its losing control of something else it has run for hundreds of years and it feels fear at the thought of it. I’m no fan of the current government but this is one of the more sensible proposals it may hopefully introduce. We already have civil partnerships, I just see this as another progression, and indeed same sex marriages such be legal and equal in the eyes of the state.
I’m not going to go into any further details really as you can read more in the link above.
In my opinion two people who are in love and want to get married should be able to, regardless of sexual orientation or gender, its really that simple. Why should we concern ourselves with an outdated, out of touch book which has been written and rewritten, heavily edited and contains fiction and the absurd. The bible just isn’t relevant in the society of today and who would want to pay attention to a book that vilifies homosexuality and wants all women to be subservient and domestic slaves to husbands?
Long may social progression and secularism continue.
