Who owns marriage?

The Church does not “own” marriage nor have the exclusive right to say who can marry, Liberal Democrat Lynne Featherstone, equalities minister in the coalition government, has said in commenting on the same sex marriage issue.

Actually Lynne, my little leftie rage-babe, I think you will find the Church do own marriage.

Personally I don’t give a toss about same sex marriage, so long as churches are not forced to perform them. However I do think politicians who try to politicise sex and relationships should be taken outside and shot.

BTW I recently reread Joseph Heller’s Catch 22 in which the character General Dreedle believed taking people outside and shooting them was the answer to everything. I mention that because I don’t want people thinking Jeremy Clarkson invented it. He’s obvously read some decent books though.

  2. I agree that same-sex marriages should not be held in a church. They should be held at the very end of Brighton pier where no-one can see two loons making fools of themselves!

    The church should have a say.definitely
