I’ve just found out that our local church performed a same-sex marriage ceremony last week. Now I consider myself to be a pretty tolerant bloke. But the church’s teachings on homosexuality are very clear. It’s a sin. And therefore same-sex marriage represents a dangerous move towards moral ambiguity.
So this “wedding” of two men last week (which was conducted on the sly, I might add) is just unacceptable.
What should I do, Yak? The priest is a long-time family friend so to confront him directly would be awkward. But I can’t just sit by and say nothing.

Dear Aisle Be Buggered,
Your concern is well-placed. Same-sex marriage is already proving to be a slippery slope to all kinds of unforeseen side effects; dodgy Wi-Fi signals, frizzier hair in damp weather, an increase in the registration cost of dual-clutch transmission vehicles with more than three axes… the list is endless. Need I go on?
In fact, just the other day I was reading an article that said “these couplings are deeply unnatural and against the natural order of things. Validating them in law will be a dangerous and morally objectionable path and one that we would be well advised to avoid…” … oh hang on, that’s from an article about inter-racial marriages. From 1967. Sorry, my bad.
Hope this helps.
With kind regards,
