Debate over same-sex church weddings
Prime Minister David Cameron has said he wants churches in England and Wales to be allowed to conduct same-sex marriage ceremonies - but that they would not be forced to.
Canon Doctor Chris Sugden from Anglican Mainstream, told the BBC:
"Marriage is a commitment between a man and a women, and if you take gender out of marriage you turn it into something else."
But Joseph Musgrave, from the pro-gay marriage group Out For Marriage said in response he did not think any church had the authority "to tell other faith groups how they should theologically define marriage."
