Marriage used to be between a man and a woman of the same race yet that was changed. Same-race heterosexuals marriages didn't stop as a result. And extending legal marriage to include same-sex marriage will do nothing to stop heterosexual marriages either.

Religions that don't want to have any part of same-sex marriages are not expected to change their ways. And religions shouldn't expect to dictate what counts as a legal marriage since it is a secular issue.

Why do they call him the primate? If he is, shouldn't he be living in the Primate House at the Canterbury zoo?
