Call to stop gay marriage
2:04pm Thursday 31st January 2013 in Letters
CAN everyone in this country wake up before it’s too late and ask your MP to vote against it. What am I talking about? The bill to redefine marriage. Which has its second reading in the House of Commons on Tuesday, February 5.
Family breakdown is already rife, with all its consequences, and making a mockery of marriage is not the way forward. This bill should be stopped before untold damage is done. We have a minister, culture secretary Maria Miller, saying: “In opening up marriage to same sex couples we will further strengthen the importance of marriage.”
Is this women for real, or does she take lessons from David Cameron?
I bet there will be no mention of the damage this bill will do, and the message it’s sending out to our children, the discrimination it will create for people who disagree about gay marriage, “who will” be prosecuted for speaking out against it, or failing to teach it as normal. Once you abolish the most important pre-condition of marriage – namely as between one man and one woman – you give up any basis upon which to make a stand. What is so pathetic is that, at the present moment in time, (while promoting gay marriage) no political party in our country has a coherent framework to support real family life.
