Bill Presented: Blood Donation (Equality) (22 October 2014)

Michael Fabricant: ...something does not make sense; when something is not fair. How can it be logical that a straight, promiscuous man who might have different partners every night of the year can donate blood, while a gay man in a monogamous, loving relationship cannot, unless he has certified that he has been totally celibate for the past year? How can a nation that has just passed the Marriage (Same Sex...

Conor Burns: ...up to us as politicians to take decisions, confident in our judgments and confident that over time they will be shown to be right. I will use the recent example of same-sex marriage.

Stephen McCabe: ...of same-sex marriage—which it is difficult for some people to acknowledge—we are not talking about a single model of marriage. We could be talking about cohabiting, heterosexual, homosexual and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. It varies in the world we now live in. Relate also suggests that one of the things that puts the greatest pressure on families is the...

Chris Bryant: ...the 1980s, it was the first year that more than one woman was in training there. The women could no longer be treated as honorary chaps, but the vitriol to which they were regularly subjected—I have to say that it was nearly always by gay men—was beyond the pale of Christianity.

Lord Giddens: .... For those of you in the know, Conchita was a lady in a slinky dress with full make-up, except that she was not a lady at all and she sported a beard.

In his winner’s speech he said: “This night is...

Wales Bill — Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (13 October 2014)

Lord Berkeley of Knighton: My Lords, we live in an ever changing world. One thinks back over the last year and the issues that we have debated in this House, be it assisted dying or gay marriage, and it is clear that we live in a world that is changing very fast.

International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill (12 September 2014)

Philip Davies: ...do with it, so it is scratting around for any kind of nonsensical, politically correct project to throw its money away on. But it is not throwing away its own money—this is our money. It is our constituents’ money that DFID is throwing away with gay abandon. It might make DFID feel good, but it does not do a great deal for my constituents who are seeing their money go up in...

Bills Presented: Ukraine, Middle East, North Africa and Security (10 September 2014)

Crispin Blunt: I entirely agree with the hon. Gentleman. We face the much bigger question of how we will engage with political Islam. I am a secular, gay, western politician, and the values of political Islam are absolutely antithetical to mine, but people should be allowed to stand for election on a platform that brings their religious beliefs into play, much as the Muslim Brotherhood have throughout much...

Universal Declaration of Human Rights — Motion to Take Note (24 July 2014)

Baroness Lane-Fox of Soho: .... I asked my wise Twitter followers for examples of where technology had enabled religious freedoms. One story hit home.

He then found many digital communities all over the world where he could talk about the complex issues that...

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I am pleased to support my noble friend Lord Sharkey’s amendment.

Lord Harrison: ...Church of England, after 2,000 years, has finally recognised women as worthy of becoming bishops.

Let us leave the...

Business of the House (17 July 2014)

Angela Eagle: ...is a team that represents Britain, but it is 95% white, 77% male and nearly 50% privately educated. That is not a Britain that most people recognise. The Prime Minister appointed an equalities Minister who voted against gay marriage and sacked his own Minister for modernisation.
