This consultation had been organized by the Scottish government because, even if most ministers of the majority party support a change of law, certain ministers remain opposite because of the pressure of the Church of Scotland and the Roman Catholic Church.
Recently, Roman Catholic Church's leader, Cardinal O’Brien, said: "As an institution, marriage long predates the existence of any state or government. It was not created by government and should not be changed by them. Instead, recognising the innumerable benefits which marriage brings to society they should act to protect and uphold it not attack or dismantle it. At the heart of this debate however there is one perspective which seems to be completely lost or ignored, it is the point of view of the child. All children deserve to begin life with a mother and father, the evidence in favour of the stability and well being which this provides is overwhelming and unequivocal."
But who knows, perhaps this consultation will be beneficial for LGBT in Scotland. Deputy first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, said all views will be consider by the government but they "tended towards the initial view" : marriage equality should be allowed.
