Scotland is set to become the first part of the UK to introduce gay marriage after the SNP government announced plans to make the change.

Hopefully the UK government follows sooner rather than later.

Not really on topic, but your signature seems to suggest you are a nationalist socialist.

I saw this on the Yahoo!News page, and some of the comments were pretty shocking, and positive comments were all marked as spam!

About time. Now just have to wait for the rest of the world to catch up. Obviously apart from the few places that have full and legal same-sex marriage.

It says "Civic nationalism".

They abolished prescriptions fees and tuition fees, rid their NHS of privatisation, and now they're the first part of the UK to have gay marriages. They're better than us; this is why we can't have nice things.

Good. The UK is supposed to have it completely legalised by 2015 isn't it?
I'm glad to see we're making actual progress with this rather than just talking about it (although they still are talking about it, technically).

A form of nationalism, one presumes?

It's not marriage. Marriage can never be gay, it's inherently heterosexual. More gay imperialism.

I don't think we rid the NHS of privatisation; we just never privatised it in the first place. Unless it was privatised a long time ago and I'm unaware.

Gay marriage in England should be announced by 2014, too.

If the definition of gay can be changed, why can't the definition of marriage?

"gay imperialism"...:facepalm:

Because the word 'marriage' is defined by the history of the institution of marriage in the UK. The word 'gay' is simply an adjective that refers to neither institution nor history.

Definitions of words can change over time though :holmes:

Marriage has been changed in the UK both though. In fact, the Church of England was only created when Henry VIII had a difference of views with the Vatican over his marriage.

So if gay marriage were introduced in England, how would it affect you? What problem do you have with it exactly?
