The Coalition for Marriage is an umbrella group of individuals and organisations in the UK that support traditional marriage and oppose any plans to redefine it.
The Coalition is backed by politicians, lawyers, academics and religious leaders. It reaches out to people of all faiths and none who believe that marriage is the most successful partnership in history and should not be redefined.
The Coalition draws upon a substantial body of evidence showing that marriage – as it has been understood for thousands of years – is beneficial to society, and that changing its definition would undermine that benefit.
The Coalition’s petition demonstrates that there is broad public opposition to redefining marriage. The Coalition is committed to a reasoned and courteous debate on this issue, and will highlight any intimidation or intolerance shown to supporters of traditional marriage.
the campaign is being supported by a number of high profile individuals and groups including former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey, who has written about it in today’s Daily Mail. You can read The Telegraph’s report on it here. If you believe that the definition of marriage which has stayed constant for centuries should not be altered then please visit the Coalition for Marriage website and sign the petition.
