Chrissie, there are other places to have fancy weddings besides churches....hotels, parks, any public space you can rent for a day....or two.Are there non-denominational chapels that ONLY do weddings in the UK? 

I guess a church would be less expensive since in the UK, your taxes openly support the Anglican church.  MY taxes invisibly subsidize every effing church in California, because they pay NO taxes on their property, or even for their office supplies and/or toilet paper.  (I tried using pages from the buybull for TP once....not very absorbent.)

It just makes me shudder to think of non-believers having to go through the motions just for the sake of a little pizzazz on their wedding day....

As a Brit. we are not much into the religious thing but you will find that many of us do want what churches still exist to remain.  Lets face it a Register Office wedding is not very festive or up market.  We get married there and we Christen our kids there, you have to do that because its a bloody good start to a damn good piss up to wet the baby's head.  On the surface of it they say that 60% of us are Atheist or Agnostic but in truth if we were honest it is more like 90%.  The older members of the Tory Party do not want to admit anything because the Queen is the head of The Church of England and they think it would show her disrespect to admit that they think it's a load of crap.  The Christian Religion is loosing all over most of Europe but what is on the rise because of such lax immigration protection and millions of those people who get out of the Middle East to escape to Europe and UK to keep their own countrymen from murdering them but they drag those same beliefs in with them and refuse to accept the lifestyle of the Nation that gave them refuge. So here it is, Brits want something that recognizes that they are joined, it has many advantages.  Most of it is Taxation and of course money talks.

As for the Mormons, If they believe all that about the founding of their church and trust their well being to the pair of knickers that they have on I can see that same sex attraction is not gay, its surely Brotherly Love.  You have to admit they make lovely music.

Well, that's my tuppence worth.

That was Ann Richards who made the "silver foot" remark... in her Keynote Address at the Democratic National Convention. I remember it clearly...."Pooooore George, he was born with a ....etc"

Although Molly Ivins may have suggested it.  She and Ann Richards were very close friends.

Molly Ivins was high on my hero list. She deserves an immortal spot for declaring George W. was born with a silver foot in his mouth.

Daniel, there ARE some sane people in Texas (Steph is one), but so far they are a minority, and are usually not in positions of power.

I can't express how much I miss Molly Ivins and former Gov. Ann Richards.....

WHAT are these killers afraid of?  That has always puzzled me.  I have never heard of any GLBTs att

One of my favorite (fiction) authors has stressed over and over in his stories that hate and anger are fear "in drag."  I know he's right on that.

I have never heard of any LGBTs attacking, beating killing str8s....except in very rare cases of self defense.  (I do remember Stonewall; I knew a few guys who were involved in that rebellion... and the police deserved it.) 

It's about as rare as atheists and/or humanists starting wars on religionists.... the believers always attack first.  Their buybull tells them to kill anyone who is the slightest bit different from the majority in any way..

The Michigan House Just Passed a Bill That Would Deprive LGBT People of Their Most Basic Rights

Indicating that he supports the bill (in inimitable wingnut doublespeak) for individual liberty, MI Speaker of the House Jase Bolger said:

I have been horrified as some have claimed that a person’s faith should only be practiced while hiding in their home or in their church.
