19 March 2012 Top story: UK government launches consultation on same-sex marriage The British government has launched its consultation document on gay marriage (see SPUC's position paper , background paper  and official policy on gay marriage). The consultation is an attempt to achieve a fait accompli on the enactment of gay marriage. The consultation document says: "[T]his consultation is about how we best remove the ban on same-sex couples having a civil marriage, not on whether this should or should not happen." John Smeaton, SPUC director, commented: "We must re-double of our resistance to the government's plans before it's too late."
