The recent moves all over the world to legalise same-sex marriage, is seen by many people to be about equality, justified by the belief that “everyone has a right to be loved and to love, therefore everyone has a right to marry no matter what their sexual orientation.” The gay lobby has done well to win over so many people, in relatively a short space of time, with a campaign that focuses on the normality of the homosexual life-style and the need for them to be the same as heterosexual couples. Many now believe that to not recognise homosexual unions as “marriages” is to discriminate, denying those with same-sex attraction the ability to give and receive love.
Using celebrities as poster boys and girls for their cause, they have managed to seize the hearts of those who once disagreed with gay marriage. Parents of children who have “come out”, once opposed to homosexuality, now speak of their child’s “right to get married”. Sadly, they too have allowed their consciences to be led astray because of misguided compassion for their children.
While the homosexual lobby is working hard to change the hearts and minds of those who make laws, legalising same-sex marriage is just one more step in the ladder to completely normalising what is essentially abnormal behaviour.
Chris Ashford, a Reader in Law and Society at the University of Sunderland commented in PinkNews (a gay news service) that:
Legislative victory should not mean identity erasure. There remain numerous sexual freedoms to campaign on – yes sexual – that’s what gay rights is about, not merely a civil rights campaign – and there are battles still to be won. Battles relating to pornography, the continued criminalisation of consensual sexual acts, re-constructing our ideas of relationships in relation to sex, monogamy and the illusion that only ‘couples’ might want to enter into a state-sanctioned partnership, are just a handful which spring to mind.
The marriage Bill should be welcomed, but it is not the end of the journey, or the final piece in a jigsaw. It is just another step – albeit a significant one- on a never-ending journey.
Another gay activist in Canada, Robin Perelle wrote:
This is a moral question, I agree. Just as the black civil rights movement changed the rules of what is and isn’t acceptable for racism, the gay rights movement is shifting norms in Canada. And with that comes a message to those who won’t evolve: your outdated morals are no longer acceptable, and we will teach your kids the new norms.
And yet another quote from the late Paula Ettelbrick shows how the gay lobby completely wants to change the fabric of society:
“Being queer means pushing the parameters of sex, sexuality, and family, and in the process, transforming the very fabric of society.”
When the militant homosexual lobbies of this world finally get what they want, marriage, family and the bringing up of children will be completely re-defined. No longer will anyone be able to speak up for all that is true and good and beautiful. No longer will anyone be able to be true to that natural law which is inscribed on every person’s heart. The homosexual bullies, will see to it that Christians and people of good will who see the dangers, remain silent, while they take free reign of marriage and family, defiling it and as Pope Benedict XVI says “obscuring its specific nature and its indispensable role in society.”
