Gay Rights Campaigners Want to Force Church Marriages

Chris Bryant and Cameroon gay marriage campaigners claim that churches will never be forced to bless gay marriages against their conscience. Christians, conservatives, liberals and gays have all expressed anger at Maria Miller’s shambolic gay marriage proposals, and UKIP are wasting no time in taking full advantage. Compromises please no one, and the futility of the entire exercise has been compounded by gay rights campaigners coming out against the government’s line. Backed by Ed Miliband, Peter Tatchell has made Farage’s morning by arguing that the so-called “quadruple lock” legislation banning the Church of England from performing gay marriages could be a breach of human rights laws:

“This faith-based discrimination could be open to legal challenge. The government is treating two churches differently from all other religions. Discriminating between faith groups is probably illegal under the Human Rights Act and the European Convention on Human Rights.”

Out4Marriage’s James-J Walsh is also critical, attacking the “enforced bar” put in place by the state. Miller put her faith in the supposedly unbreakable “quadruple lock” swaying Tory MPs’ votes, gay rights campaigners aren’t having any of it. Tatchell and others won’t stop until the Pope, Dalai Lama and Imams bless gay marriages in their places of worship…
