PM praises Tory LGBT record, and pledges to do more

from The Christian Institute:

Same-sex marriage is evidence of the ‘progress’ the UK has made on LGBT rights, but “more must be done”, the Prime Minister has declared.

In her wide-ranging remarks, Theresa May suggested the Church of England should embrace gay marriage, backed introducing it in Northern Ireland and also said changes on transsexualism laws were imminent.

She praised David Cameron for ‘delivering same-sex marriage’ in England and Wales and expressed pride in her own LGBT record.


Discussing the Conservatives’ parliamentary arrangement with the DUP, she maintained that the position “does nothing to weaken” her Party’s support for the LGBT agenda.

“We will continue to push forward, to enhance LGBT rights and we’re pleased with what we’ve been able to do so far, and we want to do more”, she said.

Although the PM conceded that marriage law was “a matter for the devolved government of Northern Ireland”, she also said same-sex marriage ought to be introduced.

Stormont has debated the issue five times in recent years, on each occasion the proposal was stopped.
