Well said. In light of the latest attempt of a cleric to interfere in human rights (Cardinal O'Brien's opposition to gay marriage) - will someone please point out that marriage of some form or another has been around practically as long as humanity, and the various churches do not have copyright on marriage! What I found particularly offensive was the suggestion that allowing gay marriage would shame the UK around the world - not as much, I would suggest, as the bigoted attitudes of some countries (e.g. Uganda) shames them, or indeed as many examples of intollerance shames organised religion itself. Myself and my wife are straight, by the way.
