Equal Rights for British Gay Couples

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Jun 08, 2003

The social experiment steamroller rolls on, according to the London Times, which reports that:

"GAY and lesbian couples are to get the same legal rights as husbands and wives under government plans due to be published this month. Ministers will propose homosexuals should get the same tax, pension and property rights as married couples provided they register their relationships in a new-style civil ceremony. The government is, however, expected to provoke controversy by denying the same rights to unmarried heterosexual couples in long-term relationships. It will fuel claims that the government is pandering to the gay lobby."

You can read it here if you're lucky: the online Times is a subscription service, but I find that I often fly under its radar.
