The Church does not own marriage


Published: 27th February 2012 - Category: Civil Partnership Agreements - Author: Lynne Bastow

The Government is moving ahead with its determination to allow same sex marriage.

It is reported on the BBC that Equalities minister Lynne Featherstone stated:

“It is the government’s fundamental job to reflect society and to shape the future, not stay silent where it has the power to act and change things for the better.”

She said: “(Marriage) is owned by neither the state nor the Church, as the former Archbishop Lord Carey rightly said.

“It is owned by the people.”

Is this the end of Civil Partnership Agreements? A rather unattractive and cumbersome phrase…
