RIGHT now the Telegraph is running a poll which asks: Should gay marriage by legalised?

The poll, which is not at all going the way bigots would wish, was prompted by the giddy gurglings of former Archbish of Cant, Lord (of the Wedding Rings) Carey, who – writing in the Daily Mail, claimed that a government proposal to change the status of marriage:

Constitutes one of the greatest political power grabs in history.

In September, it was announced that the coalition Government would legislate for same-sex marriages by 2015.

In the wake of the government announcement, some dotty outfit called the Coalition for Marriage was set up in a bid to halt attempts to redefine marriage.

The pathetic old loon added that state does not “own” the institution of marriage. Nor does the church.

The honourable estate of matrimony precedes both the state and the church, and neither of these institutions have the right to redefine it in such a fundamental way.

Gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell said:

The Coalition for Marriage is intolerant and out of touch. Its support for the ban on gay marriage is homophobic. Coalition members are entitled to believe that same-sex marriages are wrong, but they are not entitled to demand that their opposition to such marriages should be imposed on the rest of society and enforced by law.

Get over to the Telegraph now and use your vote to show the cock-eyed coalition what utter twats they really are.
