It seems Scotland is likely to be the country that leads the way on Gay Marriage. See:-

:clap: huzzah!

But argh! I'm torn between my personal support for same-sex marriage and my belief that this is the right course of action, vs my belief that democracy means letting the stupid masses be as bigoted as they stupidly choose. :sob:

seems you'll likely see it in the uk,before we ever see it in the us.

and democratically speaking,everyone should have the right to be married to whom they choose(within the current laws for age).if someone doesn't wish to be involved,they shouldn't have to be.

And as for age of consent, the lowest in europe is in the Vatican which also has the smallest railway and highest crime rate.Not a lot of people know that.

I just work on the principle of supporting anyone's beliefs providing they support the rights for others to think different. The trouble is at the moment the conservative voice is using the UK government to dictate what others should do. Most liberal minded churches, The Unitarians, The Quakers, and the Reformed Jews, want the right to perform Gay marriages but are being prevented by laws laid down by the Church of England and Catholic Churches centuries ago. Now if conservative churches do not want to do gay marriages, I may not like that view, however, that is okay and I invite gay people to leave such churches, but I see no reason that the conservative churches should also have the right to dictate to the rest of us. For me I find it flies in the face of the human rights for freedom of faith. It should be noted that Conservatives are not the only ones who have a faith or have faith.

It's called the law of vested interest.Those in power will use and abuse that power to stay in power and keep things just the way they like them.
This really isn't a true democracy you know.I don't think such a thing currently exists.
Some will always think they know better than everyone else and kindness and compassion are regarded as weakness despite apparent appearences.
