Same Sex Marriage Controversy

The  Goverment's civil marriage consultation is causing plenty of debate.A Home Office spokesman said: "The purpose of the equal civil marriage consultation is to enable us to listen to all views. The Church of England's response warns of a potential clash between canon law – that marriage is between a man and a woman - and civil law, if gay marriage is permitted. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/jun/12/gay-marriage-anglican-church-warning

But Canon Giles Fraser refutes this position -http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/belief/2012/jun/12/church-of-england-gay-marriage?intcmp=239
