  1. At last, a Tory who realises that civil partnerships aren’t full equal!

    1. Surely, all Tories who are voting for SSM realise this.

    Finally the pro-equality side of the debate are speaking out against those that would hide their bigotry behind religion. Well done Ms. Grant for pointing out that their opinions are not based in Christianity and instead based in their own personal prejudices.

  3. Obviously, Ms Grant is a TRUE Christian. She, like the founder of her religion, rejected the Old Testament in favour of a more loving, non-judgemental form of belief. It’s a pity more Christians do not read and understand the central message of their Messiah: ‘Love one another”

      It’s a pity religion exists at all……then we wouldn’t even BE in this mess.

    Thank you Helen, you’re support is tremendously important. Wonderful from a woman of an ethnic minority, speaks volumes. She puts those in opposition to shame. This is what the real meaning of Christianity is all about but sadly vanquished among the majority of them only to be replaced with bigotry and hypocrisy.

    Thank you Ms Grant, for being a Christian railing against the Pharisees of 2013.

    She stoops to conquer.

  8. The Tories drive me mad but well done that woman! And get your like-minded friends to speak out much more!
