Love and Proposition 8: Keith Obermann's moving plea


"If you voted for this proposition, I have some questions for you," begins Keith Obermann on MSNBC and he goes on to say all that needs to be said about the right of gay people to marry in the USA: much of it applies here in the UK too. I recently interviewed former Bishop Richard Holloway for the next issue of 'Humanitie' magazine and he put it so simply and well - unjust laws have to be broken if we are to have justice in the world. At present, HSS celebrants can only conduct 'blessings' for people of the same sex. The society campaigned for fifteen years for the right to conduct legal, secular, humanist weddings for heterosexual couples; it's high time we put the same effort into achieving parity for all.
