It is certainly fascinating to follow Parliament’s debate on passing the gay-marriage bill as it happens! It seems to me that many MPs are speaking a lot of sense, finally casting off the fusty influence of the Church in favour of something fairer. ‘Marriage is only between a man and a woman’  a tired, unbalanced little phrase! Granted, my political views are a little too simple and naive to quite understand it all, but it seems to be moving in a positive direction.
