UK Parliament overwhelmingly passes gay ‘marriage’ bill

Posted by Joseph on 6 February, 2013

At about 7 pm. London time tonight, 400 Members of Parliament voted in favor of a law re-defining marriage in Britain, with 175 MPs voting ‘no.’ The bill now goes to committee for further scrutiny.

The Scene of the Crime

The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children, one of the leaders in the fight to defend marriage, told LSN today that the fight is not over, and that those involved in the fight for marriage are continuing to rally support at the grassroots. SPUC commended the pro-family MPs who opposed the bill, who came largely from the government’s own backbench MPs.
In today’s 6-hour debate, Tory MP Roger Gale summed up the position of those opposed to the change, saying it had nothing to do with “equality” but with the objective reality of marriage.

“It is not possible to redefine marriage,” Gale said. “Marriage is the union between a man and a woman, has been historically, remains so. It is Alice in Wonderland territory, Orwellian almost, for any Government of any political persuasion to seek to come along and try to re-write the lexicon. It will not do.”
