Stonewall Chief Ben Summerskill: We Don’t Support Gay Marriage Because It’s Too Expensive

Ben Summerskill, the head of gay activist group Stonewall in Britain, is about to make HRC’s Joe Solmonese look competent: He’s defending his organization’s refusal to support marriage equality by explaining how expensive the whole thing will be. Speaking at a meeting of the Liberal Democrats’s queer caucus, which favor marriage equality, Summerskill reportedly told his audience the effort was “too expensive” (five billion pounds over ten years) and would give heterosexuals access to precious civil partnerships. Which apparently are something magical worth protecting from evil breeder trolls?
