I’m not sure if the Tories want to legalise gay marriage, so much as they know they don’t have much of a choice. And it’s all descending into chaos, it seems. I did read a comment on the Daily Mail about this all and someone delightful cried out that it’s because of Humanists that we’re going to have gay marriage and it’s wrecking the institution of marriage. I’d be more inclined to allow gay marriage, since there’s a greater chance of a gay couple being Christian, than a Humanist couple being Christian.
