Marriage only between a man and a woman says Archbishop of York

The Archbishop of York says that while civil partnerships are fine, marriage must only be between a man and a woman.The Archbishop of York said David Cameron will be acting like a "dictator" if he allows gay couples to wed.
The Government will launch a consultation on the issue in March, and David Cameron has indicated he wants it to be a defining part of his Premiership.

He said at last year’s Conservative Party Conference: "I don’t support gay marriage despite being a Conservative. I support gay marriage because I’m a Conservative"

But the Archbishop, the second most senior cleric in the Church of England, said it is not the role of the state to redefine marriage, even if the weddings only take place in secular venues.

He said: "Marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman and that’s marriage. I don’t think it is the role of the state to define what marriage is.”
