You all know I agree with him, albeit for different reasons; i.e. a civil partnership isn't a marriage and thus should not be called that. Instead we need TRUE gay marriage.
However the following section seems truly bizarre:
Speaking about so-called "gay marriages", the bishop said: "Most of my gay friends would want to distinguish between marriage, which is something that happens for a man and a woman, and a civil partnership, which allows you to be committed together in a kind-of household for life with your gay partner.
"I think I'd want to make a distinction. It's a bit careless to call it marriage, in other words."
He said the status of marriage itself was under threat, adding: "I think it's just that our legislators have got a bit careless and they've not noticed that some of the things that they've done have not helped home life in our country.
"I think the consequence is that an awful lot more people are having to bring up children on their own that would love to have a partner there."
What on Earth is he on about? He is not making sense! Is he really, honestly suggesting that civil partnerships are causing some children to grow up with only one parent? Now sure he's logic is likely to be flawed; he believes in a man in the sky who is constantly spying on humans actions AND thoughts. I mean with that kind of belief he's like to be a little weird. But the suggestion that civil partnerships break up heterosexual marriages is not just wrong it's insane.
Are they any other laws he could possibly be talking about that assist in the Governments aim to destroy married life?
