UK gay couple sues to make church perform wedding

This came to mind after hearing about the recently vetoed Arizona bill and now I find it’s already happened in the UK. According to a 2013 article at

Millionaire gay couple the Drewitt-Barlows have confirmed they have launched a legal challenge to the right of churches to opt out of gay weddings…

Earlier this month, Drewitt-Barlow said he and his civil partner, Tony, would go to court to force gay weddings on churches…

“It is a shame that we are forced to take Christians into a court to get them to recognize us.”

He added, “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.”

A government bill legalizing same-sex marriage in the U.K. cleared Parliament earlier this year, and the first same-sex weddings are expected in 2014.

The legislation allows churches to opt out of performing gay weddings, and it specifically protects the Church of England.

However, top human rights lawyer Aidan O’Neill says protection for the Anglican Church is “eminently challengeable” in court.

I wasn’t able to find any updates on the case. Nevertheless, it’s further proof that the gay agenda is primarily about neutralizing Christianity. Yes, this couple claims to be Christian; however, disrespecting the wishes of the church and filing a lawsuit are not listed among the fruit of the Spirit. Instead of displaying respectful humility, according to Anglican Mainstream:

they are not entirely happy. “I am still not getting what I want,” cried Barrie, stamping his foot on the plush purple shagpile. And so they are now suing their local parish church – the fellowship where they worship; where their children were baptised; and which supported Tony through the trauma of throat cancer a few years ago – because they can’t get married there.

That type of behavior isn’t taught in the Gospels or the New Testament letters.

Again, I’m not against gays, but against the gay agenda because it seeks to infringe upon the rights of others. Once the global elite get what they want, the LGBT community and everyone else who’s helped the globalists will be eliminated just like the rest of us. I wish people would stop fighting each other and start fighting the real enemy, the globalist agenda and the demonic forces behind it.
