Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper has responded to reports on the Church of England's comments on same-sex marriage. Ms Cooper said:
Two people who love each other and want to make a long term commitment to each other should be able to get married whatever their gender or sexuality.
Parliament has legislated on civil marriage for 400 years. It should update it again now, as it has many times before, to make sure that the way the state recognises long term loving relationships remains relevant and reflects our sense of justice and equality in a modern society.
David Cameron was right to support same sex marriage. I hope he will not wobble in the face of the first opposition.
