I am bemused by all this hysterical squawking and would be very interested to know the real reasons behind it. I wonder what on earth it is that they are afraid of? Even if they won this round, they must know that defeat on this issue is inevitable eventually. Every intelligent person can see their pathetic doomsaying for what it is, other countries already have legalised gay marriage with no dire consequences.

With regard to human rights legislation, they seem to have hung on to their exemptions involving blatant sexism in the workplace. This is illegal under UK law anywhere else. Would their blatant discrimination against gays be any different?
