Gay Couple Wants to Force Church to Host Gay Weddings

The Church of England’s greatest fear over the legalization of gay marriage is about to be realized. A gay couple said he and his partner will go to court to force the church to host gay weddings.

“I am still not getting what I want,” Barrie Drewitt-Barlow told the Essex Chronicle. “It upsets me because I want it so much – a big lavish ceremony, the whole works, I just don’t think it is going to happen straight away.”

The British government recently passed a law legalizing gay marriage – but included a measure to protect churches from legal action.

Last year the Church of England predicted that the legalization of gay marriage would trigger lawsuits and end the 500-year link between the church and state.
