Hot on the heels of the Scottish “Government’s” announcement of a consultation on ‘gay marriage’, the ConDem Government has proposed the same. This is a global phenomenon and our national and sub-national governments feel obligated to toe the line.
We used to lead the world in industry and invention, literature and exploration, but now all that our castrated politicians can think of making Britain world leaders in is unholy matrimony.
This is an illustration of what happens when a culture descends into hedonism: pleasures and comforts take over from hard work and genuine family life and child-raising. Time starts running out for that society. Already, the fertility rate of British women is below the replacement figure. We are literally becoming extinct!
The Equalities Minister, Lynne Featherstone announced at the LibDem Conference yesterday that,
…in March, this Government will begin a formal consultation on equal civil marriage for same-sex couples.
This would allow us to make any legislative changes before the end of this Parliament.
We will be working closely with all those who have an interest in the area to understand their views ahead of the formal consultation.
I “have an interest in the area”. A very great interest. Marriage is between one man and one woman. This is the definition and always has been and no government has the legitimacy to change the meaning.
Changing the definition of ‘marriage’ will have a wide-ranging influence on the rest of society. Marriage has been getting undermined for the past few decades to the point where the majority of British children are now born out of wedlock.
This obviously has a destabilising effect on society and legitimising same-sex unions will add to the devaluing of marriage in people’s minds and increase problems in the community.
I urge you to consider the views of everyone in this country because a change of this magnitude effects everyone.
And I really do urge everyone to get involved, because this is not just a matter for homosexuals, this is a massive shift in society’s value system being proposed and will affect us all. Marriage will be further devalued and communities will become more fragmented. Your children will be subjected to homosexual propaganda at school and in the media on an unprecedented scale.
Apparently, “the Government has indicated it is committed to changing the law to allow gay marriage (sic) by 2015″ So, like the Scottish bunch, they appear to have made their decision even before the consultation process has started.
That’s “democracy” for you.
Ms Featherstone continues,
The consultation will only cover civil marriage for same sex couples – not religious marriage.
For now. As I wrote a fortnight ago, Tory MP (yes, Tory MP) Mike Weatherley has written to David Cameron and seems to be suggesting that churches that refuse to bless the union of man and man/woman and woman should forfeit the right to perform all marriages.
But like everything else, it’s salami tactics at play. Homosexuality was legalised for two people over 21 in private. Then it was 18; then 16. Civil Partnerships were introduced. And when Section 28 was done away with, we were assured that it would not lead to homosexuality being promoted to children. Now, Stonewall sends out its propaganda on DVD to every school in the country and teachers even encourage primary school children to wear frocks to ‘discover their feminine side’.
Imagine the new levels of child abuse they will be permitted to get away with if same-sex ‘marriage’ is legalised.
When societies descend into hedonism and decadence and throw morality out the window, they decline – and that’s why ‘gay marriage’ is unknown in history as far as I am aware.
Rulers and governments weren’t THAT naive in the past.
