From Mr Peter Dodkins
Sir, — Civil registrars exist to register non-Christian marriages, often of divorcees, and to register births, many outside wedlock. It is spurious for any to quibble at registering non-Christian, non-marriage civil partnerships (News, 23 May) — and blasphemous to do so “as a Christian”.
