Home Secretary Says United Kingdom Government to Introduce Marriage Equality In Spite of the Church
British home secretary and cabinet minister for equality, Theresa May, has stated that marriage should be for everyone regardless of their sexuality. Writing in The Times newspaper she strongly dismisses claims by the Church of England to determine who should be able to marry.

May writes, "... marriage should be for everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation. Society is stronger when people enter into a stable relationship; when they commit to each other; when they make binding vows to love, honor and cherish one another."

May emphasized that the government proposals had nothing to do with the Church, "That's why I want to emphasize that this has nothing to do with telling the Church - or any religious group - what to do. I want to be absolutely clear that we do not propose to touch religious marriage in any way. We are talking about civil marriage ceremonies - the sort currently conducted in register offices, country houses and hotels. Civil marriages can't happen inside a church now and won't under the proposals we are announcing."
