UK Green Party Opposes Gay Marriage Ban in Places of Worship

Posted at Third Party and Independent Daily:

From the Digital Journal:

Britain’s Green Party has become the first and so far only political grouping to officially support an end to the ban on civil partnerships being conducted in places of worship. When civil partnerships for same-sex couples became active in 2005, it was specifically stated that no religious building or religious language should be used, which has led to campaigns by several groups since then. However, the new Green Party policy would allow gay-affirmative churches, such the Quakers, Unitarians and Metropolitan Community Church, to host civil-partnership ceremonies for the first time. A party conference vote makes the Greens unique among British political parties.
