The Queen would be breaking her oath of coronation if she signed gay marriage in to law, according to a former leading Bishop. Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali said the Queen had a duty to "uphold the laws of God" and that this was at odds with allowing gay couples to wed. The former Bishop of Rochester made the comments during a service outside Buckingham Palace on Sunday, ahead of a key vote on gay marriage in the House of Lords this week.
