Willie Rennie: Small but Important Step for Equality
Commenting as the Scottish Government announces that it will legalise same-sex marriage, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:
"This is a small but important step for equality in Scotland. I'm sure there will be bumps on the road but Nicola Sturgeon can count on my support to deliver equality in marriage.
"These reasonable changes are about removing barriers and extending freedoms. It's never been about compelling churches to conduct marriage ceremonies against their will. That's why I will work with Nicola Sturgeon to secure changes to the UK Equality Act to cement religious freedoms if such amendments are needed."
