Appearing before the Public Bill Committee of the House of Commons, which continued its scrutinisation of the government’s same-sex marriage bill on Thursday, journalist Brendan O’Neill argued against the bill on the grounds that it will redefine marriage without support from the public.
Mr O’Neill cautioned that the bill represented an “authoritarian” overhaul of marriage that was designed to further the goals of politicians at the cost of society, and called it “an elitist campaign that doesn’t have any traction with the public.”
“I think same-sex marriage is an entirely invented, purely symbolic issue and it doesn’t have any roots in social activism,” he said.
