In case you missed it: anthony made the following comment
if i find a man daft enough to marry me, i am assuming you will not officiate. why?
Fair question, deserving of a fair answer. I've known anthony for a few years, consider him a friend, (he is also a fellow blogger on my link list) and yet I would have to say that I've not been convinced that the sacrament of marriage in the Church is to be offered to same gender couples. A starting point in the "why" would, for me, be Jesus' reiteration of the intention of the institution of marriage in the creation narratives: man and woman, in their created difference, come to a unity which is not merely symbolized by their physical difference and union, but is incarnated in that physical difference and union.
That being said, (and there is more to say on the nature of the sacrament of marriage), anthony: if you do find someone daft enough to marry you, I'm looking forward to receiving an invitation, and let me know where you are registered.
