How much is Marriage worth?
Blogged by James Preece on 12th July 2012
For a while I thought The Freethinker was a satirical magazine poking fun at atheists, then I discovered it was for real. Anyways, they have some interesting statistics about the "War against Gay Marriage" in Scotland:
On Sunday, the posturing fool threatened the Scottish Government with an “unprecedented backlash” if it did not back down from its plans to legalise same-sex unions.
And he pledged to spend a further £100,000 on an advertising campaign against gay marriage. This is on top of the £50,000 the Church has already spent in its battle against marriage equality in Scotland.
I know it's not a competition, but I can't help wondering how the figures in England and Wales compare. If the six diocese in Scotland can manage £150,000 on a campaign against gay "marriage", how much have the twenty-two diocese in England and Wales spent?
