"David Cameron: Marriage Equality Can Co-Exist With ‘The Values Of Christianity’"

Conservative British Prime Minister David Cameron tried to convince religious groups to back his push for civil same-sex marriage during an Easter reception yesterday. Cameron emphasized that “change [is] what happens in a register office, not what happens in a church” and stressed that houses of worship would not be required to perform unions that violate their faiths. The Prime Minister also reassured the groups that marriage equality can co-exist in the public square with religion: “I think there’s something of a fightback going on, and we should welcome that,” he added. “The values of the Bible, the values of Christianity are the values that we need.”
