The UK Parliament will vote this afternoon (5 February) on the Marriage (Same-Sex Couples) Bill, offering legal recognition to same-sex marriage in England and Wales. This is the “second reading”: if it passes, it could still be ammended in the Commons, and will then go to the Lords, where the opposition may be stronger. So this is not the end, but it’s an important day – not least because of the media interest. It’s important that the media realise that there are many followers of Jesus supporting equal marriage.
