Church in a knot over gay marriage

Seems to me Roman Catholic cardinals, senior Anglican churchmen and obedient parish priests are getting themselves in a right old knot over the gay marriage issue.
Have your say
Sorry, your other question. No. In all honesty I can't remember whether the assurances came from the gay community or the politicians or both - but it happened!
Because politicians are SO in touch with what goes on in the community hey Ian? Methinks with homophobes it is a case of being uncomfortable withs one's sexuality for one reason or another.
@Ian the slippery slope is a recognised logical fallacy. In your post you are arguing that if we grant equal rights to gay marriage then the next step will be incestuous marriage. This is a fallacy because the two are completely disconnected. There are rational reasons to disallow sibling marriage but there are none, not one, against gay marriage.
As to the civil partnership issue you raised. You may have had "assurance after assurance from the politicians" but did you have that from the gay community? Do the politicians speak for the gay community or do they speak for themselves?
