Further to my email below, if you’ve yet to sign the petition please note this plea from a Christian MP on Twitter :
Jim Dobbin MP: There are Christians in Parliament who want to fight to save marriage but they really need the support of the church (My emphasis and here’s the link)

Following the government’s decision to begin a consultation on redefining marriage The Coalition For Marriage was launched last week. It certainly deserves the support of all the church, so please join us in signing and consider circulating the information below.
By the way, political blogger Cranmer has objected to the Equalities minister’s claim that the church doesn’t own marriage. If you have time to read it, click on link for his riposte.
Let’s stand with the Lord
