(quote) “Churches unite against gay marriage”

Senior Anglican and Catholic archbishops warn ministers that they are pushing for an ‘unjustified change’ in the law

Some of the most senior bishops in the Anglican and Roman Catholic churches in Britain have united to warn that legalising gay marriage would be a dangerous and unjustified change in the law.

The archbishop of York, John Sentamu, said on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show: “I happen to believe that to change the law in the end would be forcing an unjustified change.”

John Sentamu said there was a difference between civil partnerships and marriage, which did not mean one was better than another.”

The history and the culture of our nation does. Indeed the world.

So it is not the place of a particular Government to hijack it, swayed by gay pressure groups.

The petition against same sex marriage www.c4m.org.uk
has now reached over 120,000 signatures in 2 weeks.
And the consultation has not even opened yet.
