In a month’s time there is a referendum in the Republic of Ireland proposing to introduce same-sex “marriage”.
In the North next week a Sinn Féin motion, below, is to be debated in Stormont:
That this Assembly welcomes the marriage equality referendum in the south of Ireland; notes that a growing number of parliaments across the world have embraced, and legislated for, marriage equality; respects the rights of the religious institutions to define, observe and practise marriage within their beliefs; and calls on the Executive to legislate for marriage equality for same sex couples so that all citizens will have the same legal entitlement to the protections, responsibilities, rights, obligations and benefits afforded by the legal institution of marriage.
I read that Sinn Féin is “vigorously” campaigning to re-define marriage in the South. Not only is such a thing anathema, it is cultural subversion. The “equality” agenda has been used for decades to destroy our Western culture. The USSR knew they could exert control easier by using subversion rather than bombs and bullets. Sinn Féin are slow learners!
And I see objectors are described as “bigots”. How original and Pavlovian!
It shows how utterly brainwashed these people are, considering that no government or monarchy legalised same-sex “marriage” in any country in the world at any time in history – not even once – until “PC went mad” a few years ago? Was everyone a “bigot” throughout history, absolutely everywhere? Just “unenlightened,” I imagine!!
The Presbyterian Church released a statement saying,
The Presbyterian Church in Ireland upholds the historic – and Christian – view of marriage as exclusively between one man and one woman. We affirm that it is needed for the common good of society.
In recognising the rights of all people within a democracy, we must include the rights of children, and the natural responsibilities of a father and a mother in their nurture. We believe the change proposed in the referendum denies these rights.
A redefinition of marriage would establish new norms within our society, the implications of which have not been fully explored.
We acknowledge that this is an intensely emotive subject and trust that all will engage in the debate with gentleness and respect as we approach the Referendum.
And same-sex unions harm the innocence of children, say Nigerian Catholic bishops,
This Conference will attempt to show the lie of same-sex unions as a grossly disordered phenomenon which should never be given legal status in Nigeria. The adoption or promotion of same-sex unions undermines the right to life, right to freedom of conscience, religious liberty, respect for moral and cultural values, etc. It also harms the innocence of children, degrades marriage and family life and destabilizes society, now and in the future.
That’s the whole point, of course. It’s why the KGB spread “equality” in the West and why their brethren in countless other socialist organisations are doing likewise. I’m sure that most of them couldn’t care less about homosexuals; they are a means to an end.
