Church Backs Gay Marriage

Church Backs Gay MarriageOn the front page of The Times: "God's grace seen in gay marriage, say bishops".

Senior bishops and clergy called on the Church of England to "rejoice" at the prospect of gay marriage, rather than condemn it. And it's nice to see part of the church getting behind the idea. After all, it's more business coming their way.

I understand that not everyone in the church will get on board with this, but there are religious people who still insist there were no such things as dinosaurs. Haven't they seen Jurassic Park?

I don't know why anyone would mind the idea of gay marriage. All we have to do is slightly widen the definition of the word marriage, and job done. Why are people worried? Just because the word "marriage" could mean gay marriage too, it won't lead to admin errors where you'd get accidentally gay married by mistake.

MAN1: "So, you two finally tied the knot. Congratulations."
MAN2: "Well, funny story. We wanted a straight wedding but someone must've ticked the wrong box and we got a gay marriage. Tracy's furious. She's my husband now."

And if you don't agree with gay marriage, don't marry someone who's gay. We need to remember that, it's not a compulsory thing. If they were trying to bring in mandatory gay marriage, like National Service, I'd be there with protesters. If you received a letter to say it was your turn to get gay married, well, I'd be happy about the cake and gifts but less keen on the consummation. But it's not. It's an opt-in deal.

I don't want to get preachy but this is an important issue, because the standard level of tolerance doesn't apply here. A lot of people say, "I don't care what they get up to, as long as they don't try and shove it in your face." But we're talking about marriage. But it straight or gay, when someone has a marriage all they want to do is shove it in your face. "What's that, a 6-inch deep photo album of your relatives that even you don't really know that well? Oh, I'd love to sit through each and every one."

Maybe the message needs changing to "as long as what you want doesn't hurt or upset anyone else, good luck to you".

And that doesn't mean all marriage will be allowed. Straight ones, yes. Gay ones, yes. But Jordan getting married to another Z list celeb...
