Churches could be sued by homosexual rights activists who want same-sex marriage, the Government has admitted.
The Coalition yesterday announced new proposals to legalise same-sex weddings in churches, synagogues and other faith organisations that choose to opt in.
The Church of England and the Church in Wales are to be explicitly banned by law from holding same-sex weddings under the Bill. Maria Miller, the equalities minister, promised that watertight protections would prevent religious organisations from being forced to conduct same-sex weddings against their wishes.
However, she admitted that the Government was powerless to prevent campaigners bringing legal action against churches in an attempt to overturn the safeguards. Peter Tatchell, the human rights campaigner, said the plan to give special protection to the two Churches was open to legal challenge.

Catholics can halt all civil marriages and do spiritual weddings for Catholics only. When the fascists charge side step them and let them ram their heads into the wall.
If they go further like Chi-coms, it is time to let them arrest you enmasse and do complete shunning and rebellion of homos and their prostitutes in every walk of life for every Christian. Their prisons will fill up quickly. Home churches will be next.
Are the Catholics willing to sacrifice materialism to refuse to cooperate with the sodomy altar call cause? I bet they would not do that. But that is what the British elite will require.
We can expect this to start soon in WA and CO now that they have gone over the edge. It’s only a matter of time.
The sodomites and their allies are always whining to their opponents: “don’t impose your morals on us”. Yet, these hypocrites want to impose their lack of morals on us.
Christianity started as an underground organization. It may have to return to its roots.
I think that is exactly what we are headed for.
Once the Supreme Court flips to the left, things will deteriorate very quickly for Christians.
They will be forced to choose their God or their government.
I know for sure which side I will be on. Sadly, I believe most Americans will be on the other side.
