Scotland to back gay marriage

2012-07-25 15:07

London - Scotland's government has announced plans to legalise same-sex marriages.

Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Wednesday that legislation permitting the marriages would soon be introduced.

The measure has backing from the major Scottish political parties. It follows a public consultation on the issue.

When enacted, Scotland could become the first part of the UK to allow same-sex marriages.

The UK government has conducted a public consultation on legalising same-sex marriages, and it has the backing of Prime Minister David Cameron. But UK officials are waiting for the results of the public consultation before taking further steps.

    Typical of the day and age we're living in. Sinful and immoral ! God created woman for a man. Marriage is sacred between a man and a women.NO other type of marriage will be blessed by God !!!!

      So why did god make people knowing they would be gay and then punish them for it?

      God made nobody gay ! They chose that life. We choose to be who we are and what we do. It's all a matter of choice.

      It's not choice - according to you god is omniscient, so he creates people knowing some of them will be gay (in fact they have no choice but to become gay). He then punishes them for their unaviodable indiscretion?
