Scotland looks set to be the 1st of the countries that together make up the UK to legalise marriage between same-sex couples – http://tinyurl.com/c2pswp5
Opposition to such marriages is generally on religious grounds – that only a marriage between a man and a woman is acceptable in the eyes of God
Wait, that’s not quite true – the Catholic Church recognizes marriage between women and mystical beings. Nuns are often referred to as ‘brides of christ’ and many wear a gold band similar to a wedding ring to symbolise that holy union. No doubt this is a blasphemous thought but if women (nuns) forego earthly pleasures to devote themselves to the service of God why are not men (priests) who do likewise not viewed as husbands of Christ?
Allow that thought and . . it becomes a bit ironic then, that men symbolically engaged in a same-sex marriage should argue against and seek to prevent mortal same-sex marriages!
Marriage is about love. About two people making a lifelong commitment to each other
