Gay Marriage Row

February 4, 2013 by  

Gay Marriage Row, The Daily Telegraph says the new Archbishop of Canterbury will step in to the row about gay marriage, using his first official day in the job to “issue a challenge” to David Cameron.

The paper says Justin Welby is expected to say that marriage is “between a man and a woman, and always has been”.

The Archbishop would be just the latest to weigh in on an issue which, according to the Daily Mirror, is ripping apart the Conservative party.

It says prejudice is trumping equality, as irrational enemies of the prime minister try to settle scores with him.

Equalities Minister Maria Miller uses an article in the Times to put the case for the changes.

She tells Tory opponents of gay marriage that they are on the wrong side of history, and that the change is the right thing to do “now and for the future.”

But there is little sign that her intervention can calm the waters.

Indeed, the Times reports that David Cameron is mounting a last-ditch effort to win Tory support ahead of Tuesday’s vote, but then warns that his personal intervention actually risks deepening the divisions.
