    Marriage originates for the purpose of the security for the children that are born from within it and to protect the next generation. It is a tribal ceremony that was adopted by all religions but the purpose remains the same.

    This is a campaign for people with too much time on their hands and whether you are gay or straight, marriage is not the be all and end all in a relationship so why bother changing something that is not broken. It is a fight for nothing all but for the ego mission of those leading it.

    It will be pet owners wanting their dogs, cats or fish etc to get married in church next.

    Don't tell me this already happens.
    10 reasons to oppose marriage equality:

    1. Being gay is not natural. Real British always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and central heating.

    2. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

    3. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

    4. Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all like many of the principles on which this great country was founded; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

    5. Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of marriages like Katie Price's would be destroyed.

    6. The only valid marriages are those which produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

    7. Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

    8. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we only have one religion in United Kingdom.

    9. Children can never succeed without both a male and female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

    10. Gay marriages will never change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy or longer life spans."

Gay marriage proposals backed by Brighton and Hove council

Gay marriage proposals have been unanimously backed by politicians in Brighton and Hove.

The Government’s Equalities Office began a 12-week consultation in April and it closed yesterday.

A letter on behalf of all 54 Brighton and Hove city councillors has been sent to Whitehall supporting plans to let people “convert” current civil partnerships into civil marriage.

It also includes allowing same sex couples to have a civil marriage in register offices or other approved premises.

However, under Government plans there will be no change to religious marriages.

Council leader Jason Kitcat said: “On behalf of our city’s large LGBT community I hope this will deliver much needed change while allowing existing faiths and traditions to continue unaffected.”
