Constitutionally, nothing should happen. Churches are free to practice their religion. The question is, sociologically what will happen? We've already seen several Protestant denominations cave in. The Catholic Church will never fall into this trap however, so perhaps the Church will see an influx of Protestants trying to escape their Church's attempt at trying to please society. Time will tell.

The mainline churches won't change to suit the Government's ideas. Catholics are against gay marriage, as are (the vast majority of) Anglicans, and the evangelical and Pentecostal churches. Thankfully we still have freedom of religion and conscience in the UK, so I don't see that changing.

What worries me is what happens to society when traditional marriage is no longer considered special. As a nation, we are losing our Christian foundations, and that can only be a bad thing.

I would agree with you but for the example of concraception. Once upon a time all Christian Churches were against its use... not so today. In the area of abortion, I have been alive long enough to see more and more "mainline churches" tolerate (if not accept) it here in the US. I watched as a mainline Protestant denomination ordained a homosexual bishop. Other denominations, considered mainline, have followed suit. Since then it appears that more and more of these other churches are blessing unions or outright marrying same sex couples. It's very sad.

Yes society is heading down a very dangerous path. I for one don't hold much hope for sociey, and whilst im not an advocate of any upcoming end of the world scenarios, i truly believe nuclear war in the future will prevent any of this from becoming a bigger issue because society will simply be unable to rebuild.

Families who are strong in the Lord and pray and worship together regularly according to the Lord's will are the building blocks of society.

We who are aware of the truth need to become more prayerful together. There is hope, and a strong remnant of believers can set the world on fire with the love of Christ!

Holy priests and women religious can come from such families; and men and women who marry putting the Lord first in their lives.

With God all things are possible!

I left the Episcopal Church when they started ordaining homosexuals. Took me 11 years to find my way home to the Catholic Church. My mother still attends the Episcopal Church I was baptized and confirmed in. Their mass is presided over by a woman priest, a priestess I guess she is called.
