Quakers Challenge Marriage Law In Great Britain - Lez Get Real
They are better known to the world as the Quakers, but the Religious Society of Friends have agreed to recognize full marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples in Great Britain, and calling upon Parliament to recognize unions with full legal validity. Since 2005, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland only has registered domestic partnerships which accord all the same rights as heterosexual marriage, and are performed in the same manner by the registers. This move creates something of a break between the Quakers and the British government simply because of the laws requiring recognition and protection of religious freedom in the country.

Good for the Quakers. It makes a lot of sense to encourage individuals toward love and commitment rather than being pushed into sexual outlaws. Would that the christian mafia felt the same.
