Great Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron yesterday promised that gay marriage will be legalized by the year 2015 saying: ‘I am absolutely determined that this Coalition government will follow in that tradition by legislating for gay marriage in this Parliament.’
Cameron also compared the Church’s opposition to same-sex marriage to that of the Conservative party who once ‘locked out’ homosexuals.
Mr Cameron, who was speaking at a Number 10 Baker Street reception for members of the LGBT community, has promised his MPs a free vote on the issue adding: It’s something I feel passionately about and I think if it’s good enough for straight people like me, it’s good enough for everybody and that’s why we should have gay marriage and we will.
Prime Ministers in the Scottish Parliament yesterday promised to bring forward laws enabling same-sex marriage by the start of 2015.
Mr Cameron wants similar laws in England and Wales by that year also.
