British MPs approve gay marriage – and 'show contempt for God'

STEPHEN Green, the violent Christian zealot who hates gays with the sort of passion one only associates with pathetic self-loathers, reacted to news that MPs  approved same-sex marriage in England and Wales by saying on his Christian Voice website:

MPs have shown contempt for God, the scriptures, our Christian heritage and six thousand years of human understanding. 

STEPHEN Green, the violent Christian zealot who hates gays with the sort of passion one only associates with pathetic self-loathers, reacted to news that MPs  approved same-sex marriage in England and Wales by saying on his Christian Voice website:

MPs have shown contempt for God, the scriptures, our Christian heritage and six thousand years of human understanding.

The Commons voted in favour of the The Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill, by 400 to 175, a majority of 225, at the end of a day’s debate on the bill.

According to this report, Prime Minister David Cameron has described the move as "an important step forward" that strengthens society.

About 140 Conservative MPs are thought to have voted against the plans.

Former children's minister and Conservative MP Tim Loughton told the BBC that he believed "140 or so" of his party colleagues had voted against the plans, along with a "small rump of Labour MPs" and "four Lib Dem MPs".

He added:

Apparently there are 132 Conservative MPs who voted in favour, so I think what we're going to see is that more Conservative MPs voted against this legislation than for it.

Opening the debate, Equalities Minister Maria Miller urges MPs to back the bill, and Deputy Prime Minister and Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg said:

I genuinely believe that we will look back on today as a landmark for equality in Britain. Tonight's vote shows Parliament is very strongly in favour of equal marriage. No matter who you are and who you love, we are all equal. Marriage is about love and commitment, and it should no longer be denied to people just because they are gay. The Liberal Democrats have long fought for equal marriage. It is party policy and I am proud that the Liberal Democrats are part of the coalition government that are making it happen.

But Conservative MP David Burrowes predicted that the legislation would receive substantial opposition when it arrived in the House of Lords.
