Lord Smith (Labour) said:
- I am somewhat puzzled by the arguments that have been advanced. It seems to me, in my simplistic way, that what they are arguing for is quite simply the right to discriminate and the right to harass. And those arguments are being made in the name of Christianity.
I'll point out, too, that someone claiming to make their argument in the name of Christianity doesn't necessarily command the agreement and respect of all Christians. Again, I imagine that's something that those who know me well will have already spotted.
I'm glad that the Lords have acted in accordance with my views rather than those of Lord Morrow.
Lord Morrow and I will continue to work towards the Kingdom of God -- he in his way, and I in God's.
