It's a landmark piece of legislation, and of course it's long overdue, but there is still a considerable amount of opposition in the population.

If you are a dissenter I'm interested to hear your views - and if possible your reasons for holding them.

If men want to get married then bugger it let it be.

Men should marry women, simple as that, all this pussy footing around with equal rights and PC is a load of crap.

A194, glad someone does it makes a refreshing change.

I only hope that the media lose interest on this subject over the coming months, because seeing how this subject is getting rave reviews, then its going to get very tiresome.

I have friends who are in same sex relationships, and even they are getting fed-up with all the hype being portrayed by some sections of the community, and that includes some 'over the top' gays who consider themselves being extremely special seeking or bringing attention to themselves.

Tonight's episode of 'Rev' on BBC2 put this rather sad situation into perfect perspective, I feel. Many clerics must feel uneasy with Church law as it stands.

FE: that begs the question.

Where does a gay Cleric go to get wed?

Why should they feel uneasy?

I didn't say they should feel uneasy, I said many of them must feel uneasy.

Why?

Perhaps they feel that a truly loving God would not countenance a rule that says Gay people cannot marry in church. As far as I am aware neither God nor Jesus decided that gay people are somehow less deserving than heterosexuals. Men, writing down their opinions and experiences in the Bible did that.
