Marriage Equality Bill introduced in UK

The UK and David Cameron’s government is getting on with making marriage equal for all. The bigots won’t be happy even though there is an exemption for he Church of England.

The British government has introduced a bill legalising same-sex marriage and says lawmakers will get their first vote on it in Parliament next month.

The Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill, published yesterday, extends marriage to gay couples but excludes clergy in the Church of England – the country’s official faith – from having to carry out the ceremonies. 

That is intended to placate religious opponents of same-sex unions – though it has not stopped criticism of the bill from religious leaders.

The bill is likely to become law because it is supported by Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron, many of his Cabinet and most Liberal Democrat and Labour lawmakers.

Watch the bigots unhinge themselves about the end of western civilisation as we know it and how we will start to run out of people if pooftahs are allowed to get married.

For those who oppose it they should just be made to listen to this song until they understand that equality is good for us all.
