David Cameron, Prime Minister of Her Majesty’s United Kingdom, has said that he won’t allow civil partnerships for straight people. Won’t have them in the house, he won’t (not that mixed marriages between members of different genders ever work out anyways). The reason? It would ‘undermine the sanctity of marriage’. Sanctity means ‘the state of being holy, sacred or saintly’. So, yes, here we go again.
In New Zealand and the Netherlands, where civil partnerships are available to heterosexual, non-matching couples, 10% of those getting spliced opt for the non-marriage option. Which just goes to show. DC, according to the Sunday Times, just doesn’t want to get into another bit of argy bargy with the Church. Because they can turn nasty, that lot.
In unrelated ‘sanctity’ news, Pope John Paul II, the man whose main legacy was that he helped some paedophile priests get off scot free by shifting them away from victims who were starting to go to the authorities while denouncing those victims, has been made a saint. Now ain’t that cute?
