Skip to comments.Gay marriage to be introduced in Scotland
Posted on 07/25/2012 3:40:13 AM PDT by markomalley
Scotland is set to become the first part of the UK to introduce gay marriage after the SNP government announced plans to make the change.
Scottish ministers confirmed they would bring forward a bill on the issue.
Political leaders, equality groups and others support gay marriage, but it is strongly opposed by the Catholic Church and Church of Scotland.
The announcement was made in the wake of a government consultation which produced a massive response.
Same-sex couples in Scotland currently have the option to enter into civil partnerships and the Holyrood government has insisted no part of the religious community would be forced to hold same-sex weddings in churches.
Despite opposition by the big religions, faith groups, including the United Reformed Church, the Quakers, Buddhists and the Pagan Federation back gay marriage.

“And d’ye see this nice, sturdy bar here — built that one as well. Lots of folk lean up against this bar, but am I known as Angus the Carpenter? Nooo.”

I was disgusted this morning when I saw an interview with two guys (about something like exercise, IIRC) in the Wall Street Journal and they identified one of them as the “husband” of the other.

WTH is this equality group anyway, equality means all different types of marriages, family’
s etc so why do those same groups oppose polygamy ?
marriage is one man and one woman and no matter how many boycotts, they do or how the media tries to make it look like the majority goes along with this sick agenda I will never shut up about it nor will I ever go along with it
This Govt can jail me if they like but I will never shut up nor stop telling others or speaking out about it.
Shame many on our side just stay quiet or are cowards.
I;m off to chick-fila in ten minues witht he family and if there is a homosexual there which I doubt and they act up they will hear from me.
