Religious groups call for gay marriages in Scotland
"Five religious groups are joining together to call for same-sex marriage to be allowed in Scotland.
The Unitarians, Quakers, Metropolitan Community Church, Pagan Federation and Liberal Judaism are backing members of the Scottish Youth Parliament in their campaign on the issue.
Ministers are currently holding a consultation on same-sex marriages.
At the moment gay couples can have a civil ceremony but it cannot take place in religious premises."
