    Scotland gives the lead in gay marriage.

    Post by papa_umau on Wed 05 Feb 2014, 10:41 am

    Gay marriage legalised in Scotland following historic vote at Holyrood

    MSPS have passed the landmark Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill by 105 votes to 18, making Scotland the 17th country in the world to legalise same-sex marriage.

    Here we go again, giving the lead in human-relations !

    While Russia have banned any participation in The Sochi Winter games for gays, Scotland not only welcomes this freedom, but it recognises it as a right by legalising gay marriage.

    Is this a right and proper thing to do or should we close off any happiness that gay couples might get from being properly married ?

    Stop bummin Paps.

    Although I have never had any interest in same-sex coupling, HONEST, I see no reason why us heteros can not live and let live.

    As long as they are happy and they don't interfere with me I say let them get on with it.

    The only people who are really against this form of freedom are the holier than thou bible-bashers.

    It's a fact mate, it's a fact.

    Many many times in the past things have been done in Scotland that have been quickly copied by others.

    All I can say is: Good for Scotland !

    I guess that the only problem that might arise is if any of the churches were forced to conduct gay marriages.

    As, I believe that this will not happen and that any marriages of same-sex people will be purely voluntary in any of the churches.

    "Live and let live" is also my motto.

    Yes, that IS the most important point about gay marriages. So long as the churches, who feel this is against their teachings, are not forced to do it, I think there will be plenty of places where such marriages can be carried out and many of the churches can then "wash their hands" of the problem.
