You Think Pope Benedict Is Happy About The U.K.’s Attempt To Let Gays Upgrade To Religious Marriage?

That there’s even a law stipulating whether ceremonies for gay unions can be held in a church boggles the mind, but the U.K. plans to reverse the ban on same-sex nuptials taking place in Jesus’ temples with new legislation introduced this week, effectively stripping away gay couples’ restriction on incorporating god or whatever in their civil partnerships. Oh, and the gays will also be eligible for actual marriages, under the reforms proposed by equality minister Lynne Featherstone, though it’s not like the Church of England or Roman Catholic Church are about to open their doors to The Gays. After all, we’re talking about something Pope Benedict XVI believes to be the “most insidious and dangerous challenges that today confront the common good.” So go find a Quaker church, yo.
