The first same-sex weddings can take place from 29 March 2014, equalities minister Maria Miller says.

(SOURCE)   Initially it was thought the first same-sex marriage in England and Wales would not take place until the summer.

Couples wishing to be among the first to wed will need to give formal notice of their intention to marry on 13 March.

It comes after the government’s controversial legislation on the issue received Royal Assent in July.

The Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat leaderships all backed the proposals.

BBC political correspondent Norman Smith says it is understood the government, following the passing of the Same Sex Marriage Bill, has been able to put in place the necessary arrangements much faster than previously thought.

  1. I agree. Yet it seems that much of the world does not! Society is changing quickly. Sin is accepted and tolerated as “normal”. If you speak out against it then you are labeled a “trouble-maker” and a “hater”.
    God Bless!

  2. God Bless you too Gordon…. Too many people in this world say that the Holy Bible is outdated or that traditions go above God’s Word and that simply isn’t the case.

    God doesn’t change and neither does His Word. Jesus Offended many with the Truth and if those Same Words Offend people today, then so be it, I don’t mind being the offense or called on a hate crime if it makes one think about Jesus Christ & Him Crucified and what He Did On The Cross To Save All Of Our Souls and Give Us Eternal Life With God.

  3. Hi Gordon!
    Just the thought of a man with a man or a woman with a woman should give us an idea of how evil and deceiving is the evil spirit of homosexuality! And to have preachers of congregations that are homosexual! What Bible are they using? 1 Corinthians 6:9 “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be DECEIVED, neither fornicators,nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, – – – – – – – will inherit the kingdom of God!” Also, Romans 1:26-32 – – Vs. 32- -“who knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also APPROVE OF THOSE who practice them.”
    We must keep the homosexuals and all those that have not received Jesus as their Savior in prayer; Hate the sin, however, Love the one committing the sin while we continue to teach the truth of God’s Holy word without compromise!
    God Bless!

  4. Amen Dr. Gary! Those that oppose homosexuality and gay marriage are becoming victims of persecution and hatred, it is only going to get worse from here on out. God Bless!

  5. Jesus prophesied of these things when he said that the last days would be as it was in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah and also He spoke of the days of Lot. which are debased sexual pleasures. This whole issue is crafted by the wicked one who is putting happy smiley faces on debased minds. Every intent and thought is only wicked continually. By the way, all this is openly accepted and endorsed by our president and many in high government. Our president who is the highest most powerful office in our nation is an open proponent of homosexual sins because when he speaks of it, he uses and endorsed the initials GLBT which is inclusive of all that is evil. No surprise that Hollywood and the media are pushing this agenda into every area of public they can because it sells. If it starts getting unusually warm in our atmosphere, it may be the fire and brimstone falling from heaven. This particular sin is known as “high handed sin” meaning it is committed with no consideration for retribution from God. Will this be what shuts up God’s ear from hearing our prayers? I pray not, Mercy!! O Lord, I cry Mercy!! please God, turn not your face away from us, pour out your Spirit, bring repentance, heal our land.
