Petition Supporting Traditional Marriage in UK Tops 600,000 Signatures

 

Pro-Marriage People Power!

A petition that opposes the British government's plans to redefine marriage began to acquire names since February, and already has more the 600,000 signatures.

The petition was first started by the Coalition for Marriage (C4M) and was created back in February. Since that time it has expanded to become largest active campaign in the United Kingdom.

The petition urges the government officials to maintain the current definition of traditional marriage as the union between one man and one woman. There currently are plans within parliament to redefine traditional marriage as including same-sex marriage.

There has been wide public resistance to redefine marriage in the U.K. and a recent ComRes poll showed that nearly 70 percent of people were against redefining traditional marriage. -- The Christian Post
