The MP for Wellingborough in Northamptonshire has suggested the Church of England reply to the government's consultation on equal marriage on the basis that it is 'completely nuts'.

Peter Bone MP made the comment during Commons questions on the issue of gay marriages in religious institutions.

    Its disgraceful that a parliamentarian should use such ignorant and bigoted language in parliament. Bone should have the Tory whip withdrawn from him.

    It is disgraceful that two people in love who wish to publically celebrate that love and commitment to each other and consent to this are treated under the law as second class citizens on the basis of the orientation of the couple. Its inhumane, discriminatory and wrong.

    Civil marriage has absolutely nothing to do with God or religion and everything to do with love, honour and responsibility.

    Bigotry and arrogance like this have no place in a moral, humane and honest society.

    Bone needs to be voted out of office by the people of Wellingborough at the next election. His crass disregard for a significant proportion of his constituents on the basis of their orientation is outrageous.

    Racism would not be tolerated, nor should homophobia.
