The Black Horse says “neigh”

Dear Marriage supporter

Lloyds Bank is pursuing a sustained campaign to promote same-sex ‘marriage’ and trample over the beliefs of people like you and me.

The bank has a past record on this issue, but in recent months it has been waging a systematic and ‘in your face’ campaign for same-sex ‘marriage’. Its “He said yes” advert has been on TV and billboards, online and emblazoned on Lloyds branches:

Lloyds was rescued in 2008, during the financial crisis, when the Government bailed out the bank with over £20 billion of taxpayers’ money. Without that support, the bank would almost certainly have folded. We still haven’t got all our money back. Surely it should show more respect to taxpayers and stop pushing offensive political campaigns like this.

Please email Lloyds to complain:


If you are a Lloyds customer, please state this at the start of your email. You may want to consider moving to another bank. NB: do not quote any sensitive account information such as your account numbers.

The activists who are suing Ashers Baking Co. in Northern Ireland say the infamous cake is part of a political campaign – this fact has been upheld by the courts. And two separate High Court cases in England and Wales have found that beliefs about same-sex ‘marriage’ can be considered political beliefs.

Perhaps Lloyds is trying to keep its award from Stonewall (announced in January this year) for being the “most inclusive employer in Britain”?

Please let Lloyds know today how you feel.


Using your own words, you may wish to make one or two of the following points:

Ask why a bank is engaging in a controversial political campaign like this. It’s using customers’ money to promote causes they oppose.

Say that Lloyds was rescued with public money and should not denigrate the beliefs of many taxpayers.

Say that you believe marriage has always been the union of one man and one woman and that Lloyds is showing deep disrespect for your views.

Say that same-sex ‘marriage’ is not popular – only a few thousand same-sex ‘marriages’ have taken place.

At C4M, we will keep on defending your beliefs about marriage.

Your donations are secure and confidential.

Yours sincerely
