‘Equal marriage’ is preferred term

Have your say

Last Thursday you informed readers that there was a petition against ‘gay marriage’ but omitted to mention that there is also a petition for equal marriage run by the Coalition for Equal Marriage.

‘Equal marriage’ is the preferred term, as that is what they are asking for.

In fact, that is the whole point: gay people do not want to be discriminated against, they want to be treated equally.

Using the term ‘gay marriage’ is a way of promoting discrimination.
