Interesting Quote: Rupert Everett

"Why do queens want to go and get married in churches? Obviously this crusty old pathetic, Anglican church – the most joke-ish church of all jokey churches – of course they don't want to have queens getting married. It's kind of understandable that they don't; they're crusty old calcified freaks. But why do we want to get married in churches? I don't understand that, myself, personally. I loathe heterosexual weddings; I would never go to a wedding in my life. I loathe the flowers, I loathe the fucking wedding dress, the little bridal tiara. It's grotesque. It's just hideous. The wedding cake, the party, the champagne, the inevitable divorce two years later. It's just a waste of time in the heterosexual world, and in the homosexual world I find it personally beyond tragic that we want to ape this institution that is so clearly a disaster."

I've always felt the same; however, just because I don't like it doesn't mean that I don't fight for equality for those who do.

Rupert forgot to mention the diva bridezillas.

I think the principle is not marriage as such, rather the right to equal treatment and equal acceptance of relationships. I personally wouldn't want to be married by someone in a silk dressing gown muttering incantations, but I understand that some people have religious beliefs and want to be accepted equally with straight couples.
