agree with almost everything that has been said. I can't see any reasons NOT to allow it, except those based on religious grounds.

Those religious grounds are applied so unevenly (with people ignoring a lot of other things it says in the bible) that i don't think they can be used as a justification, and are usually just used to disguise people's own prejudices.

Most of the african anglican church that is threatening to break away from the COE on the issue of homosexuality either condones or turns a blind eye to widespread polygamy, for example.

Even if people do believe in the bible i would hope they have enough self belief and responsibility to read it as somethng that was written by men a long time ago and has most of their beliefs and prejudices built into it as much as the words of jesus.
