Everyone knows what David Cameron thinks about marriage equality, but now we also know what Nick Clegg thinks:
The Coalitionâ€™s social agenda is hardly uncontroversial, especially when it comes to the suggestion that homosexual couples should have full marriage rights.
Mr Clegg is an unabashed backer of the notion. â€śMarriage is all about a couple â€“ whether they are a man and woman, a man and a man, a woman and a woman, â€“ showing love for each other, commitment to each other. I think we should celebrate that commitment,â€ť he says.
That is likely to irk critics including the Roman Catholic Church. Mr Clegg, married to a strong Spanish Catholic who is raising their sons in the faith, insists he has â€śimmense respectâ€ť for the Church. But its stance on marriage is outdated, he says.
â€śThe Catholic Church, like any Church, has this constant dilemma, of drawing on their traditional beliefs but also moving with the world as it progresses.
â€śMy own view is that in 50 yearsâ€™ time people will look back and say, ‘What on earth was all the fuss about?â€ť
