Northern Ireland churches insist same-sex weddings won't be held in places of worship - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk None of the largest Churches in Northern Ireland have said they are prepared to carry out same-sex marriages. The Church of Ireland, Methodist Church of Ireland and Presbyterian Church in Ireland all stated that they will only celebrate marriages between a man and a woman. The Catholic Church expressed its concerns at the "redefinition" of marriage, but did not comment directly on whether it would hold same-sex wedding ceremonies on its properties. The Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster did not reply when approached for comment, although it has previously expressed its opposition to same-sex marriage. Its a scandal that the established churches should turn their backs on Gay Christians in this way. They all seem to be very relaxed about marrying other "fallen souls".
