UK Moving In The Right Direction - Religious 'Marriages' For Gay Couples

04 July 2010 - 04:36 PM


Same-sex ceremonies would appear almost identical to heterosexual weddings under the changes.

Equalities minister Lynne Featherstone has disclosed that the coalition Government is committed to talks on "what the next stage should be for civil partnerships".

"This will include consideration of whether civil partnerships should be allowed to include religious readings, music and symbols," she said in a Commons written answer.

The move will alarm Tory traditionalists. Former party chairman Lord Tebbit told The Daily Telegraph: "I wouldn't want anything done to add to the pretence that a civil partnership is a marriage."

The latest review of civil partnerships follows an amendment made in the last Parliament in the House of Lords to the Equality Act which removed the ban on holding civil partnership ceremonies on religious premises.

A Government document published last month, entitled Working for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality, said the Government would now be holding talks with those with a "key interest" in the issue, including religious leaders.

It said that the discussions would cover "how some religious organisations can allow same-sex couples the opportunity to register their relations in a religious setting if they wish to do so".

The move has already run into opposition from traditionalists in the Church of England.

The Bishop of Exeter, the Rt Rev Michael Langrish, is quoted in the Telegraph as saying in a personal statement: "As some of us warned at the time, the amendment to the Equality Bill has opened an area of unhelpful doubt and confusion.

"The Church of England will not be allowing use of any of its buildings for civil partnership registrations."

Sure, not nearly as good as actual marriages, but as the title says- The UK is moving in the right direction.

8 Things Gay People Can't Do

Most of it is nothing new, but it pissed me off quite a bit.

You get to CHOOSE Das' signature!

15 June 2010 - 08:10 PM

So, our favourable Admin, Das, has lost a bet.

And the prize? I get control of his signature for 4 days.

I figured, who could be better at choosing his signature, if not Tip.It?

So, go ahead, make a signature. Theme: Romy is better than Das. :P

All it has to do, is follow that theme, and be within the rules. My favorite will be in his sig.

You may add your name on 1 of the sig's corners for credit, if you like. ;)


Uhh... another signature request :o

16 May 2010 - 03:09 PM

I know I've only recently asked for a signature, but that's because I knew I wanted a change, but had no idea what kind of change I wanted. My request was very vague, and even though 2 signatures had caught my attention, I now know what I want.

I want a rain-themed signature :D!

Any (one!) of the following should appear in it:
*Aww... the sky is crying
*Let it rain, let it pour
*You're MY kind of rain :) (not the actual Tip.It smiley, the : and then ) )
*Here comes the rain again, falling from the stars (Yeah...Green Day...)
*Into each life some rain must fall

Any other quote about rain that is nice :D.

My name should be there too, just like my last request :P.

A nice design will, once again, be absolutely blessed.

Thanks a lot ;).

It should follow the Tip.It Forum signature rules :).

EDIT: The signature should definitely show actual rain, whether in the form of a cartoon, a drawing, a painting, real rain, or whatever, rain should be there <3: ...

Your thoughts about it? And from each perspective (donators, law, mothers, and most importantly- children)?
