Wealthy gay dad, Barrie Drewitt-Barlow, says he and his civil partner Tony will go to court to force churches to host gay weddings.
He told the Essex Chronicle that he will take legal action because I am still not getting what I want.
A Government Bill legalising gay marriage passed Parliament recently but it included measures to protect churches from being forced to perform same-sex weddings. Challenge
Mr Drewitt-Barlow said: The only way forward for us now is to make a challenge in the courts against the church.
It is a shame that we are forced to take Christians into a court to get them to recognise us.
He added: It upsets me because I want it so much a big lavish ceremony, the whole works, I just dont think it is going to happen straight away.
As much as people are saying this is a good thing I am still not getting what I want.
The gay couple shot to fame in 1999 when they became the first British same-sex couple to be named on their childrens birth certificates.
They entered a civil partnership in 2006, and Barrie Drewitt-Barlow has reportedly donated around £500,000 to groups lobbying for same-sex marriage.

I am still not getting what I want.
I believe that, but it is not for the reason he thinks.

Grow up, Barrie.
Let’s see them try that with a mosque.
“I am still not getting what I want.”
He’s really going to be upset with what he gets in the next life then.
as if a church has to bow to the wishes of those who are no observant....
Recently, another FReeper commented, and I fully agree, that homos can push for all they want, but they will NEVER reach the level of a marriage ordained by God. No matter how the fags dress it up, they will always fall short..... and those miserable butt pirates know that.
Rom 1:22-32 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, (23) And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. (24) Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: (25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. (26) For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. (28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; (29) Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, (30) Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, (31) Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: (32) Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Gay “marriage” and religious freedom can not co-exist.
Did anyone not see this coming?
Indeed. Biblically orthodox Christian churches hurt their consciences and constantly remind and convict them of their sin. If they really were happy and content with their homosexuality they wouldn’t desire to use the force of law to punish those who disagree.
At last count they had five children via surrogacy. Four of those are boys. Reminds me of Sandusky collecting adopted sons...all of whom he abused.
Sad but true.
