Well, if the Quakers run afoul of British law by doing what they think is right, it won't be the first time in their long and often proud tradition.

I'm still waiting for the gay community to play the freedom of religion card, some religions have always allowed it yet that doesnt seem to matter on the FOR front.

"...things I have neither seen nor experienced nor heard tell of from anybody else; things, what is more, that do not in fact exist and could not ever exist at all. So my readers must not believe a word I say." -Lucian on his book True History

"...They accept such things on faith alone, without any evidence. So if a fraudulent and cunning person who knows how to take advantage of a situation comes among them, he can make himself rich in a short time." -Lucian critical of early Christians c.166 AD From his book, De Morte Peregrini

Interesting thought. It could be that gay organizations are nervous about seeming to advocate particular religions versus others.

If a gay couple doesn't like the policy of their church they should either quit or work within the confines of the church to alter the policy, I would only be a bystander. If the government tried to compel a church to perform gay marriages I would defend the church.
