SIR JIMMY SAVILE, fundraiser: I always thought it was a sin to live together but I am prepared to change my mind. Personally I would prefer to be married.
JOHN McVICAR, writer: If one is a Christian, and I am not. If one takes the Christian precepts as given I can't see how it couldn't be.
ANNA RAEBURN, radio presenter: Living in sin is living blindly, in unkindness and untruthfulness, in lack of care, exploitatively and callously. Living outside marriage is optional.
BARRIE HIBBERT, Baptist minister: I have never liked the phrase living in sin. But there is more to a Christian view of marriage than what is often loosely called morality. It is about trust, love and lifelong commitment.
JAMES THOMPSON, Bishop of Bath and Wells: Christian teaching is that we all live in sin; to a generation that has nearly given up on marriage we say - Think again.
RODERICK STRANGE, chairman National Conference of Catholic Priests: Christian marriage is for life. Those who are unable to accept that commitment should not be forced into it. They should rather be supported.
MYLE BOWMAN, cleaner: It ain't no sin to live with someone. All that religious stuff is baloney. I was brought up Catholic but I don't believe in it. I live with my girlfriend. We have one kid and another on the way.
STEPHEN JOSEPH ADAMS, pensioner: There is no discipline with young people these days, they are given too much freedom. The Bible says living together is a sin and that's what I believe. This country is going down the pan because of loose morals.Reuse content
