On Marriage Equality, Ctd

The debate in the UK about marriage equality is heating up. There are the proponents and the opponents. I am seeing a change from the fundy opposition, which frankly just turns people off to a more reasoned approach.

That approach is ultimately doomed though because it essentially is just a begging proposition about leaving things the way they are.

If you talk to ministers just now, they say, “Gay marriage is like the smoking ban. People thought they were against it, but when it happened, they just accepted it.” I cannot prove this wrong, but the triviality of the comparison makes me suspicious. Marriage is a great, big, deep subject. There is no crying need to change it just because a vociferous lobby says we must. I recommend a policy which should surely unite all conservatives, trad or modernising – masterly inactivity.

It is like the Homosexual Law Reform debate of the 80’s. there were vast numbers of people opposed to it but I doubt you could muster more than a few hard core fundy weirdos these days to march in the streets. All the calamitous predictions of those times have failed to materialise.
