Former Senior British Bishop Says Legalizing Gay Marriage in the UK Could Force the Queen To Break Oath

Swore an oath to "uphold God's laws" when she was crowned


Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, who was Bishop of Rochester for 15 years, said that the Queen took an oath to "uphold God's laws" when she was crowned.

But the Bishop claimed that signing into law a Bill that would allow same-sex couples to marry would force her to break that promise she made upon her Coronation.

Peers will today begin two days of debates on the Government's plans to allow same-sex weddings, with a vote tomorrow.
