You’re wondering what Sayeeda “Baroness” Warsi is concerned about these days, aren’t you. I know how you are. You can’t sleep nights for wondering about it. Well I’ll tell you. I found out via the Telegraph. She’s concerned about the possibility that laws introducing same-sex marriage might not contain enough protections for religious groups. What have they got to do with anything, you’re probably asking yourself. The Telegraph explains.
The former Conservative Party chairman said she could not support the Government bill during votes in the Lords because of “reservations” about how clauses designed to prevent faith groups being sued for refusing to perform gay weddings would work in practice.
She raised the prospect of smaller churches, mosques and temples which are linked to local community centres, finding themselves in a legal grey area when same-sex marriage becomes possible from March next year.
Uh oh uh oh uh oh uh oh. She’s concerned about smaller churches, mosques and temples that don’t want to marry same-sex couples and might get in trouble if they stamp their feet and say no. Well that is the important thing after all – not people who want to marry being able to marry, but people who want to stop them because a made-up god said Ew. What a good thing to be concerned about – not enough protection for people who want to prevent other people from marrying.
