Thread Name: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
Subject: RE: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
I must say I find the latest pronouncement by Parliament to be most strange. At first, they were suggesting that all Churches should perform gay marriages. Now we have the proposal that Churches should not be forced to do so. Then the odd statement that under no circumstance may the Church of England or the Church of Wales be permitted to do any such thing. Why this sudden turnabout? As the Queen is the Head of the Church of England (and Wales) might she perhaps have put her Majestic foot down and refused to sanction it? (Secretly, so as not to bring down on her Royal Head the wrath of the hopeful gays of the Nation?)
