    Congratulations, Ben! What wonderful grandparents you have. This is the sort of thing that changes hearts, so very badly needed. Thank you for all that you do. Well done!

  2. Thank You, Ben

    Loving your grandparents – they should be warmly congratulated for their strong, thoughtful and emotionally significant comments.

    Loving the campaign.

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

  3. They seem lovely people, but think they’re wrong on redefining marriage. Effective for your cause though.

    1. Jean, the same argument you espouse was advanced in the 1900s when very brave campaigners sought to redefine the franchise of this nation and extend the vote to women, and again in the 1950s in the USA when civil rights campaigners struggled to redefine human rights for black Americans to allow them to attend the same schools as whites. Discrimination is very ugly – please reconsider your prejudice and come round to supporting equality – it will make you a better person.

    2. Jean, you missed out on the first comment, what happen had a little snooze?

      Poor dumb arse Jean! Why, don’t you know it was heterosexuals who ‘redefined’ marriage in the UK in the 19th century when the government introduced CIVIL marriage that allowed serial hetero adulterers to marry and divorce many times over? Why aren’t you campaigning to ban civil marriage then? Aren’t you aware that heterosexual governments in 11 countries have introduced equal civil marriage? Stupid bint!

    4. Do shut up, Jean. Your idiocy is showing.

    A nice video – touching, personal and absolutely to the point :)

  5. at least he has a family

    S!ck Pr!ck.

    F off and get a life.

  7. bit risky placing them in the public eye don’t you think?

    With obsessive nutters like you around, perhaps it is. On the other hand, we can’t allow our lives to be dictated by the unhinged.

  8. Speaks he who hides behind false photo’s of himself …

  9. I love this video so much. It makes it clear why equal marriage isn’t just for a minority group, it’s for everyone in society.

    Well done Norma and David xxxx

  10. “Using ones own family for your own gain, bit risky placing them in the public eye don’t you think?”

    @Aiden

    Ben and his family have nothing to be ashamed off . . . unlike you!!!

    Losers like you, I suppose!

    1. Hey we have the most powerful man in the world on our side

  12. Simply LOVE this video clip.

  13. Incredibly touching video. Your grandparents, Ben, are wonderful – truly supportive. I will forward this video to quite a few friends.

    What a beautiful video. Thank you for sharing Ben. You can’t go wrong with family like this. I wish you and your loved ones long life, love, happiness and prosperity.
