    Cameron wants to legalize gay-marriage by 2015.

    Gay marriage is one of worst threats in 500 years, says Church of England - Home News - UK - The Independent


    The Scottish Government is in discussion of similar plans and the Archbishop of Glasgow doesn't like these plans:
    Archbishop brands calls for gay marriage as 'kind of tyranny'

    Babies are future tax-payers, and tax-advantages should only be granted to couples who can produce new babies.
    2 men are physically not designed to "produce" babies.
    It is for the Brits to decide, but I wouldn't vote for such government.

    The religious lobby has significantly less influence in the UK than it does in the US. However, with gay marriage being traditionally a more center/left than right wing position, it's likely that this is a dangerous position for Cameron to take.

    Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    Why do you say "promoting", when the article says "legalising"?
