The Scottish Government Same-Sex Marriage Consultation closes on Friday 9 December.
CMF is backing Scotland for Marriage in its campaign to retain the current legal definition of marriage which has served Scotland well for centuries. Scotland for Marriage is opposed to redefining marriage in Scotland and is calling for a referendum on this issue.
Respondents do not have to be Scottish to have a say in the Scottish government’s public consultation on extending marriage rights to same-sex couples.
To support this campaign please add your responses to the six multiple-choice questions in the online consultation at Scotland for Marriage. It is very straightforward to do.
If you live in Scotland please also consider signing the petition.
CMF agrees with the Scotland for Marriage statement that marriage is the union of one man to one woman, for life, to the exclusion of all others and is the best environment for raising children. We note that same-sex couples already have full legal rights available through civil partnerships.
A similar Westminster consultation on same-sex ‘marriage’ will begin in February. Prime Minister David Cameron has already voiced his support for legalisation.
