Same sex couples are still discriminated against because they are not legally allowed to marry. The church claim that marriage is a religious arrangement and yet non religious hetero sexual couples can be married in non religious state ceremonies, eg registry office weddings. Therefore non religious same sex couples should be allowed to be married in the same way that non religious straight couples can. Civil Partnerships are a step forward but still do not provide equality. Marriage ceremonies performed at registry offices are not allowed to have any religious content and is secular arrangement. This kind of marriage should be permitted to gay people.

Why is this idea important?

Gay people, of both sexes are still discriminated against in all walks of life. Until the laws and government recognise and give gay people exactly the same rights as straight people there will always be discrimination.
