Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill

Section of submission from Mr Michael Hobbis

3. It is of particular concern that after this bill has passed through its various stages that Her Majesty the Queen must give her royal assent by way of subscribing to it. This she cannot do unless by so doing she repudiates her coronation oath, which is as follows:
The Archbishop of Canterbury. "Will you to the utmost of your power maintain the Laws of God and the true profession of the Gospel? Will you to the utmost of your power maintain in the United Kingdom the Protestant Reformed Religion established by law? Will you maintain and preserve inviolably the settlement of the Church of England, and the doctrine, worship, discipline, and government thereof, as by law established in England? And will you preserve unto the Bishops and Clergy of England, and to the Churches there committed to their charge, all such rights and privileges, as by law do or shall appertain to them or any of them?"
Queen. "All this I promise to do".
Since neither the Church of England’s 39 articles have changed, or the protestant reformed religion, Then this bill in its present form presents our Queen with Hobson’s choice: refuse to sign and bring down a constitutional crisis; or condemn her soul by breaking her solemn vow made in the presence of Almighty God and with her hand upon His Book; the One from Whom she receives her authority and power. These are not matters of opinion, but irrefutable truth witnessed in the sight of the people.
The doctrine of the Church of England and that of the Protestant reformed religion of evangelical dissenters which the Queen has sworn to uphold, both concur that same sex liaisons are an abomination and contrary to Holy Scripture. No true Christian man of this realm (and I may add Moslem) will ever countenance such a thing whatever Parliament may say. To call evil good and good evil is shown in Isaiah Chapter 5 verse 20; to be a mark of a corrupt and degenerate society.
