Why Gay Marriage Bill will pass in the UK

If we were in 1975 I’d say the gay marriage bill would have passed because gay men were fabulous – because most gay men were in the movie or theatre industry. Well… not really –that’s a stereotype. I don’t want to spend too long describing what a gay man is like, just look at a man. There you go – all that changes? He likes men. So now that we have a grasp of what the LGBT-C is all about, after we realise it’s not 1975 anymore and that we now can do something to make this world more equal – what do we do? We debate on whether we pass the gay (Equal!) marriage bill or not. Unless you’ve been living under a rock (have you? how is it down there?) for the past few months you must have heard about the bill that is being debated right now in the British parliament.

You would think that with all the public and political support for the cause it wouldn’t even be a debatable cause, you’d think it would pass – but oh no. The British Parliament has some (too many) people who apparently live on Mars and continue to oppose the bill, bringing it close to a collapse yesterday. So how do you explain to them that this is about equality? It’s not pro-gay, it’s pro-human. Just because the discrimination against the gay community formed the “LGBT” acronym doesn’t mean that’s how it stands. It should stand as P for people or SLGBTC for Straight Lesbian Gay Bisexual transsexual Confused… people. Because who is anyone to tell you who you should be, how you should stand and who you should love?

And gay marriage doesn’t harm straight marriage if that is your argument, even if you’d want me to agree that marriage is between a man and a woman, how does allowing two women to marry of any harm to someone else’s marriage? How will you stand against a child having a family that loves him? Hey, I am not saying that all gay marriages will be happy, I am not saying there won’t be divorces(as we’ve covered, we are all people, although Massachusetts, which became the first state to legalize gay marriage in 2004, had the lowest divorce rate in the USA in 2008. Its divorce rate declined by 21% between 2003 and 2008) but there will be new families for children who don’t have one – and only that should make MPs who oppose the bill to reconsider before the next time they are at a fundraiser for children without families.

And we all know it is the  right thing to do, but if you don’t, look to your greedy side, passing this bill will even boost the economy – so now, what do you think? You’re still not convinced? I’ll leave it to Ellen. She will tell you about the fact we’re all the same, and that just like black people were given a right to vote, just like they had to fight for equality (Civil Rights movement), just like women (girl, you had no right to vote) were given the right to vote, we the people give ourselves liberties and sometimes we the people are scared of losing these liberties that have become traditions to other people who will come and fight for new causes, so we the people as a human race must see that the right thing to do right now is pass this bill, and we the people must be ready for the next big thing, and we must then respond with the same spirit as we will do now, for progress and equality.

  1. 10 Reasons Why Homosexual “Marriage” is Harmful and Must be Opposed

    By TFP Student Action

    1. It Is Not Marriage

    Calling something marriage does not make it marriage. Marriage has always been a covenant between a man and a woman which is by its nature ordered toward the procreation and education of children and the unity and wellbeing of the spouses.

    The promoters of same-sex “marriage” propose something entirely different. They propose the union between two men or two women. This denies the self-evident biological, physiological, and psychological differences between men and women which find their complementarity in marriage. It also denies the specific primary purpose of marriage: the perpetuation of the human race and the raising of children.

    Two entirely different things cannot be considered the same thing.

    2. It Violates Natural Law

    Marriage is not just any relationship between human beings. It is a relationship rooted in human nature and thus governed by natural law.

    Natural law’s most elementary precept is that “good is to be done and pursued, and evil is to be avoided.” By his natural reason, man can perceive what is morally good or bad for him. Thus, he can know the end or purpose of each of his acts and how it is morally wrong to transform the means that help him accomplish an act into the act’s purpose.

    Any situation which institutionalizes the circumvention of the purpose of the sexual act violates natural law and the objective norm of morality.

    Being rooted in human nature, natural law is universal and immutable. It applies to the entire human race, equally. It commands and forbids consistently, everywhere and always. Saint Paul taught in the Epistle to the Romans that the natural law is inscribed on the heart of every man. (Rom. 2:14-15)

    3. It Always Denies a Child Either a Father or a Mother

    It is in the child’s best interests that he be raised under the influence of his natural father and mother. This rule is confirmed by the evident difficulties faced by the many children who are orphans or are raised by a single parent, a relative, or a foster parent.

    The unfortunate situation of these children will be the norm for all children of a same-sex “marriage.” A child of a same-sex “marriage” will always be deprived of either his natural mother or father. He will necessarily be raised by one party who has no blood relationship with him. He will always be deprived of either a mother or a father role model.

    Same-sex “marriage” ignores a child’s best interests.

    4. It Validates and Promotes the Homosexual Lifestyle

    In the name of the “family,” same-sex “marriage” serves to validate not only such unions but the whole homosexual lifestyle in all its bisexual and transgender variants.

    Civil laws are structuring principles of man’s life in society. As such, they play a very important and sometimes decisive role in influencing patterns of thought and behavior. They externally shape the life of society, but also profoundly modify everyone’s perception and evaluation of forms of behavior.

    Legal recognition of same-sex “marriage” would necessarily obscure certain basic moral values, devalue traditional marriage, and weaken public morality.

    5. It Turns a Moral Wrong into a Civil Right

    Homosexual activists argue that same-sex “marriage” is a civil rights issue similar to the struggle for racial equality in the 1960s.

    This is false.

    First of all, sexual behavior and race are essentially different realities. A man and a woman wanting to marry may be different in their characteristics: one may be black, the other white; one rich, the other poor; or one tall, the other short. None of these differences are insurmountable obstacles to marriage. The two individuals are still man and woman, and thus the requirements of nature are respected.

    Same-sex “marriage” opposes nature. Two individuals of the same sex, regardless of their race, wealth, stature, erudition or fame, will never be able to marry because of an insurmountable biological impossibility.

    Secondly, inherited and unchangeable racial traits cannot be compared with non-genetic and changeable behavior. There is simply no analogy between the interracial marriage of a man and a woman and the “marriage” between two individuals of the same sex.

    6. It Does Not Create a Family but a Naturally Sterile Union

    Traditional marriage is usually so fecund that those who would frustrate its end must do violence to nature to prevent the birth of children by using contraception. It naturally tends to create families.

    On the contrary, same-sex “marriage” is intrinsically sterile. If the “spouses” want a child, they must circumvent nature by costly and artificial means or employ surrogates. The natural tendency of such a union is not to create families.
    Therefore, we cannot call a same-sex union marriage and give it the benefits of true marriage.

    7. It Defeats the State’s Purpose of Benefiting Marriage

    One of the main reasons why the State bestows numerous benefits on marriage is that by its very nature and design, marriage provides the normal conditions for a stable, affectionate, and moral atmosphere that is beneficial to the upbringing of children—all fruit of the mutual affection of the parents. This aids in perpetuating the nation and strengthening society, an evident interest of the State.

    Homosexual “marriage” does not provide such conditions. Its primary purpose, objectively speaking, is the personal gratification of two individuals whose union is sterile by nature. It is not entitled, therefore, to the protection the State extends to true marriage.

    8. It Imposes Its Acceptance on All Society

    By legalizing same-sex “marriage,” the State becomes its official and active promoter. The State calls on public officials to officiate at the new civil ceremony, orders public schools to teach its acceptability to children, and punishes any state employee who expresses disapproval.

    In the private sphere, objecting parents will see their children exposed more than ever to this new “morality,” businesses offering wedding services will be forced to provide them for same-sex unions, and rental property owners will have to agree to accept same-sex couples as tenants.

    In every situation where marriage affects society, the State will expect Christians and all people of good will to betray their consciences by condoning, through silence or act, an attack on the natural order and Christian morality.

    9. It Is the Cutting Edge of the Sexual Revolution

    In the 1960s, society was pressured to accept all kinds of immoral sexual relationships between men and women. Today we are seeing a new sexual revolution where society is being asked to accept sodomy and same-sex “marriage.”

    If homosexual “marriage” is universally accepted as the present step in sexual “freedom,” what logical arguments can be used to stop the next steps of incest, pedophilia, bestiality, and other forms of unnatural behavior? Indeed, radical elements of certain “avant garde” subcultures are already advocating such aberrations.

    The railroading of same-sex “marriage” on the American people makes increasingly clear what homosexual activist Paul Varnell wrote in the Chicago Free Press:

    “The gay movement, whether we acknowledge it or not, is not a civil rights movement, not even a sexual liberation movement, but a moral revolution aimed at changing people’s view of homosexuality.”

    10. It Offends God

    This is the most important reason. Whenever one violates the natural moral order established by God, one sins and offends God. Same-sex “marriage” does just this. Accordingly, anyone who professes to love God must be opposed to it.

    Marriage is not the creature of any State. Rather, it was established by God in Paradise for our first parents, Adam and Eve. As we read in the Book of Genesis: “God created man in His image; in the Divine image he created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them, saying: ‘Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.’” (Gen. 1:28-29)

    The same was taught by Our Savior Jesus Christ: “From the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female. For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother; and shall cleave to his wife.” (Mark 10:6-7).

    Genesis also teaches how God punished Sodom and Gomorrah for the sin of homosexuality: “The Lord rained down sulphurous fire upon Sodom and Gomorrah. He overthrew those cities and the whole Plain, together with the inhabitants of the cities and the produce of the soil.” (Gen. 19:24-25)
