The church going population of the UK is around 4% and declining so with each generation, the Church gets drawn further and further into irrelevance so the downward slide means that people of faith will be practical gone in a century or so and listening to their views on gay marriage, you can only say that is a good thing.
With the same-sex marriage law coming into effect with the first ceremonies in England and Wales this Saturday, the only loudest voices of dissent are coming from the religious quarter with their well worn phrase of 'Marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman'.
For some reason the Church and Church goers cannot see love and commitment between two people but just an unhealthy preoccupation of the couples sexuality and what goes on in the bedroom between them.
The Church and its followers need to make the leap into the 21st Century and move away from the dangerously outdated attitude that marriage is between only a man and a woman as it is now between two people who love each other regardless of gender.
To argue against it is only to usher in with increasing speed the decline of an outdated institution that is already creaking and wheezing on its last legs and the more i hear them try to justify their homophobia, the more i think the quicker it falls the better.
