It is outrageous that anyone is trying to force him to have ceremonies under his roof that he disapproves of! Why not "get married" somewhere else? Surely these campaigners are all for tolerance, and allowing people their own opinions?

Good for him. May he stand his ground, and may the evil not prevail against him. There is No such thing as Gay Civil unions or Gay "Marriage".

I feel sorry for Lord Devon, having to jump through hoops so he doesn't have to sanction immorality. The Bible Says Homosexuality is Sin.
