Ariel: 'I will Act Immediately to Abort Civil Marriage Law'
MK Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi) vowed this afternoon (Tuesday) on his Facebook page to act immediately to overthrow current government efforts to legalize civil marriages, which is also said to include same-sex marriage.
Ariel's message comes after the bill was proposed by Yair Lapid's party Yesh Atid. The move has reportedly proved a threat to the alliance between Yesh Atid and Naftali Bennet's Bayit Yehudi party, an alliance which helped forge the current coalition government.
