See now the UK government wants to force same sex marriage down the throats of the people, with out due political process. If they want to make other forms of unions legitimate they should do so but not call it marriage. The Pope and Cardinal, have made the biblical world clear on the subject. In addition it is time that when the public want answers in the aftermath of a massacar like in newtown ct, the media and government should not adopt a dont ask dont tell position when they chose to release a profile of the killer such that precautions and attempts at prevention can be made in the future. One can not say for certain but it would seem to me that the media and government "filter" and edit profiles on these insane and disturbed killers so that they dont hurt the feelings of certain special groups. If attempts to identify and prevent a repeat tragedy positions like dont ask , dont tell are counter-productive. One could go further to demand that dont ask dont tell not be part of the interview process when teachers, coaches or scout leaders are to be hired. jmho
Governments like UK, USA,Canada that make same sex marriage "legitimate" are taking the first step to force clergy to perform such unions. One can see the writing on the wall when some years down the road that a priest, Rabbi or minister that refuses to perform a same sex marriage will be slapped with some sort of discimination offense.
