Muslims and Sikhs attack Cameron’s gay marriage plan

David Cameron’s plan to legalise gay marriage is “unnecessary and unhelpful”, the country’s largest Muslim organisation has said.

Farooq Murad, Secretary General of the MCB, said: “Whilst we remain opposed to all forms of discrimination, including homophobia, redefining the meaning of marriage is in our opinion unnecessary and unhelpful.

“With the advent of civil partnerships, both homosexual and heterosexual couples now have equal rights in the eyes of the law.

“Therefore, in our view the case to change the definition of marriage, as accepted throughout time and across cultures, is strikingly weak.

In common with other Abrahamic faiths, marriage in Islam is defined as “a union between a man and a woman”, he said. “So while the state has accommodated for gay couples, such unions will not be blessed as marriage by the Islamic institutions.”

Lord Singh, head of the Network of Sikh Organisations, said the proposed reforms represented “a sideways assault on religion”.

“It is an attempt by a vocal, secular minority to attack religion".

Gay marriage is an oxymoran. :mad:

Isnt having govt. involved in marriage at all social engineering?

I’m glad our Muslim and Sikh brothers and sisters join us in combatting the assault on religion and society. :thumbsup:

Our Lady of Ransom, pray for us.

Poor Dave may have bitten off more than he can chew!
Here`s hoping! :smiley:

It is spelled oxymoron actually.

I came in surprisingly thinking Kirk Cameron had a gay marriage plan.

I leave disappointed.

:smiley:

Actually, it`s far worse! :mad:

Isnt having govt. involved in marriage at all social engineering?

Camerons reply would be that its a matter of human rights! :mad:

The Father of lies has plenty of glib “answers” to deceive the unsuspecting.

The govt does social engineering all the time via tax deductions and credits.

Nope. But you should bow to your feudal overlords and let them declare what you will do and won’t do.
