‘Silent majority’ in Scotland opposed to gay marriage, group claims

Marriage | 16 Oct 2014 0

A “silent majority” in Scotland remains opposed to the introduction of gay marriage in Scotland, campaigners have claimed.

Despite the imminent introduction of the Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Act 2014, which will allow same sex marriage north of the border from December 31 this year, opponents of the measure believe they still enjoy public support.

Scotland for Marriage said that, while they accepted the February vote in which MSPs passed the Act by an overwhelming majority, “…many people adopt a viewpoint very much opposed to that of the Holyrood metropolitan elite who took the decision to legislate”.

The group said they hoped the views of gay marriage opponents would be “respected in the future.”

Despite being the only country in the United Kingdom still to legalise gay marriage, opinion polls suggest that a majority would now back the move in Northern Ireland.
