Dear David

Thank you for your email of 15 March.

Stonewall is firmly committed to religious freedom, not least because it is something taken very seriously by many gay people of faith themselves.

I can happily reassure you that there are no circumstances whatsoever in which Stonewall would support a case brought by a gay couple wishing to marry in a church which did not recognise gay marriage.

I hope this is sufficiently unambiguous.




Ben Summerskill

Chief Executive
