Hear me out a minute.
So you know all these religious people who oppose gay marriage as marriage is a ‘religious commitment between a man and a woman’, and that allowing gay marriage will destroy it’s value and what not. Well, i just thought about that ‘religious’ part of there statement. If a straight couple wish to marry but are not religious, should they be subjected to civil partnership instead??:/ If these religious people are going to defend it with that statement should they not go the whole 9 miles?
In my view, over the past century marriage has strayed away from the possesion of the church. This probably started with increasing deforce rates does that not imply marriage is already devalued. People get married nowadays religious or not, without needing the permission of the church. It is disregarded by most (or in England at least), as we’ve already broken the bond between church and marriage why should we allow this to slow our progression into a more equal and intergrated society. I understand the religious opposion on gay marriage, but i would never support it. Obviously things will never be perfect, but it doesn’t meam we should try to make it so.
