This is a repost of http://yourfreedom.hmg.gov.uk/repealing-unnecessary-laws/allow-same-sex-marriage-ceremonies-in-places-of-worship after that title seemed to cause some confusion.

Why is this idea important?

Some religions, notaby Quakers, Unitarians and some Jews, do wish to be able to ferform same sex marriages in their own places of worship. Currently they are forbidden by law. A same sex marriage has to be a civil partnership with a civil ceremony. Civil ceremonies are not allowed any religious elements.

The current legislation penalises people based on the prejudices of people who are not even present, never mind effected by the banned activity.
