"Will you, Sandy, take Jules..."

I don’t mean this blog to sound like the rantings of a homophobe, gays, I can take them or leave them, but a story today has got my back up.

Chris Bryant, a former deputy leader of the Commons, now a junior Foreign Office minister has come up with the bright idea that homosexual "weddings" should be celebrated in churches.

When questioned by the magazine Time Out this week on whether he believed civil partnerships, introduced to England and Wales in 2005, should be scrapped in favour of same-sex marriage, Bryant replied, "I would like to see churches be much more open to the idea of gay relationships or partnerships being celebrated in church."

His suggestion goes directly against the rules of the Church of England and the Roman Catholic Church, which state that only the union of a man and a woman can be celebrated by a priest in church.

It turns out that we have been bamboozled for years. The Pope is not God’s representative on Earth, the Labour Party is!
