All Being Equal
I have posted this on Facebook before, but it is important enough to post again.
A conservative group called the Coalition for Marriage started a webpage and protest against the governments plans to allow same sex couples to marry. This has over four hundred thousand signatures so far.
In response a website called Coalition for Equal Marriage was set up, arguing that any two people in love, what ever their sex, should be able to get married in the UK. This has now got over forty thousand signatures.
I don't believe that the fact the Coalition for Marriage has over ten times the amount of signatures as the Equal Marriage site is reflective of the majority views of the British people, but is rather a testament to the strength of conservative lobbys and publicity.
If you do agree with the Coalition for Equal Marriage please sign up on the site, and lets try and show the true thoughts of people on this issue.
