ELSEWHERE: Marriage Redefined in the UK

Today, Her Majesty the Queen gave royal assent to legislation redefining marriage as a nongendered institution, allowing same-sex couples to seek recognition of their relationships. The law does not require religious institutions to participate in that recognition. Elizabeth is formally Fidei Defensor – Defender of the Faith – and she is also Supreme Governor of the Church of England. Remarkably, the Church of England is not permitted to consecrate marriage for same-sex couples. Perhaps the UK will serve as a laboratory for those who think no harm comes from redefining marriage civilly while honoring its essence in the church.
