MP calls for churches to be stripped of licences for refusing to marry gays

According to the Argus:

Churches which refuse to conduct gay marriages should be stripped of their licence, according to an MP.
Mike Weatherley, who represents Hove in Parliament, made the controversial call as a way to encourage equality in unions.
But churchmen in the city with the largest number of same-sex households in the country believe any state intervention would impede on religious freedom.

So glad everybody respects religious freedom.

This is a politician who thinks there are more gays in his district than Catholics. Someone needs to remind all Catholics registered to vote in that MP’s district to vote according to their Catholic beliefs. This MP must be driven out of office!
