Thread Name: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
Subject: RE: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
""Labour's Chris Bryant, a vocal supporter of same-sex marriages, told the Commons eight years ago that he didn't want "same-sex relationships to ape marriage in any sense".

The then equality minister, Labour's Jacqui Smith, said she recognised that people felt "very strongly about specific religious connotations of marriage". She said the government was right to take a "secular approach to resolve the specific problems of same-sex couples".

Her then Conservative shadow, Alan Duncan, who is now a minister in the coalition government, said it would be up to churches to decide what happened in future on the issue of same-sex marriages.

"The clear distinction between a civil secular partnership and the institution of marriage will, in my view, be preserved," he said.

So, because your hidebound mind is locked into your idee fixe (that's "obsession"), you deny others the right to change their minds.

Another example of your tight shut mind and its hard wired bias.
