On topic if people love each other who gives a damn. Gay/hetro/transgender/whatever. Why should you refuse to go? Unless you’re an arse and it’s probably best you don’t go and spoil their special day.allthegearMember
i don’t get it. If I was to marry my girlfriend, I presume we would spend a little bit of time deciding who to invite, the most likely way we would do that is by inviting our friends. If so, doesn’t it make sense that we’re likely to invite people that are more likely to say yes?
Somehow 1 in 5 refusing on the basis of us being gay seems fairly unlikely.

This is purely anecdotal, but in a faith school i was at recently (work related!), there were lots of posters up about how it’s ok to be gay etc.
I queried it and it’s apparently because the parents and the church are teaching the kids that gay=bad, so the school had noticed that those who were even thought to be gay were being subject to a worrying level of isolation and bullying, so the posters are part of a campaign to try and lessen the stigma that’s brainwashed into the kids.Posted 3 years agokcalSubscriber
nope (as in, would go). don’t think have actually been to a same sex ceremony, but as above have several gay couples in our circle and would have been delighted to go to any ceremony they held.
Don’t see the problem, why would you go (or be invited even) to ceremony of folk you didn’t (clearly) like or respect? Odd.Posted 3 years ago

One of the best weekends ever. I must admit it was great. I had so much fun drinking and dancing all day. They had 2 pugs as bridesmaids.
The Sunday I smashed the DH course with the worst hangover ever.IanWMember
Why does this subject get so much air time, homosexuality and religion quite frankly who cares?
I don’t mean that as disrespect to either group but it’s a bit like asking whose interested in both Concrete Roof Tile designs and also Eastern European Chutney recipes, not exactly mainstream.Posted 3 years agob rMember
the numbers don’t seem to add up:
The research also found that younger people were more likely to support same-sex marriage, with 80% of 18 to 34-year-olds backing it, compared with 44% of over-65s.
Unless the 35-65 y/o are greater than 80% and made up the majority of those surveyed. Or is my maths wrong?Posted 3 years agoMrNiceMember
I think it’s very likely that those who would say “no” wouldn’t get invited in the first place. What sort of person would think “I’m going to marry my beloved of the same sex. I know who I’ll invite, that bigoted homophobe who thinks I’m going to burn for all eternity”?
I really really don’t understand why some people get so het up about who other consenting adults choose to share their bed with.Posted 3 years agoGrahamSSubscriber
What they didn’t cover in that report is what percentage of people would turn down an invitation to a Hetero wedding!
But yeah, but sad that people feel that way. You’d think that even if you were against it on some ideological/religious principal you could still celebrate the individual happiness.
Hate the sin, love the sinner sort-of-thing.
Oh well. Their loss.Posted 3 years agototalshellSubscriber
id would and have happily accpeted an invite, wholeheartedly agree on marraige been available for all
HOWEVER equally i’d insist on the person offciating doing so by choice and not because of the threat of been sued.

I honestly don’t know what I’d do . I have worked in catering for many years and have worked and socialised with gay people which I have no problem with but on the other hand I don’t agree with Gay marriage . I have no problem with them having a ceremony and pledging a lifetime commitment but I don’t think it should be called marriage . I suppose that makes me one of the irredeemably twattish .Posted 3 years ago
