UK government launches consultation on same-sex marriage
The British government has launched its consultation document on gay marriage (see SPUC's position paper, background paper and official policy on gay marriage). The consultation is an attempt to achieve a fait accompli on the enactment of gay marriage. The consultation document says: "[T]his consultation is about how we best remove the ban on same-sex couples having a civil marriage, not on whether this should or should not happen." John Smeaton, SPUC director, commented: "We must re-double of our resistance to the government's plans before it's too late." [John Smeaton, 15 March]
