If I said that it was wrong to re-marry (which it is), I wouldn’t be charged with any PC offences. I could serve in the military. I could run for government office. No one would really take any notice.
I would just be another guy who thinks that committing until ‘death do us part’ actually means something. And those who disagree would just disagree and get on with their lives.
No one would ever consider that such a statement should wind up before some anti-discrimination tribunal for examination.
But if I comment on another aspect of marriage all hell breaks loose. Because while it is not so controversial to say that marriage should be for life, it is really controversial to say that marriage is between a man and a woman.
I wonder why? Why is it so easy to comment about the length of marriage, but so difficult to comment about who can be married?
That is a difficult question with a simple answer.
It’s a difficult question because it identifies a serious problem with public debate and homosexual activism. It’s a simple answer, well, because it is simple and it’s pretty easy to find.
Those people who support divorce don’t really care about enforcing their views on others. They probably don’t even support the notion that ‘divorce’ is wonderful in itself. They, like most people, would be of the view that every marriage failure is sad and that more should be done to support them before they go bust. And when they get divorced, they don’t expect the rest of society to come running to celebrate it or accept it. Furthermore, they would not be of the view that political parties should not be able campaign against divorce, or that religious institutions cannot teach that it is wrong.
That is why, when it comes to divorce, churches aren’t required to give permission or recognition. Schools aren’t required to teach about how wonderful it is. Political parties aren’t required to support the idea, and political candidates are certainly not punished for expressing their views about it.
But those activists who support homosexual marriage are different. They are not just content to have the right to ‘marry’. They want more. So much more.
That’s because they also want to force everyone and everything in society to celebrate homosexuality. For them, homosexual marriage is not the goal, or the end. It is just the beginning.
For them, homosexual marriage is a not a loving thing. It is a weapon to be wielded viciously in the pursuit of one thing: social acceptance that homosexuality is not just moral and acceptable to them, but to everyone else as well.
That is why it is rubbish to say that homosexual marriage does not affect anyone else. Homosexual marriage does, not only because it warps the state’s moral code by legalising perversion, but also because it is used as a springboard to force acceptance of that perversion on every business, on every church, on every government body, on every school and on every family.
Linked below are two videos that anyone who believes the lie that homosexual marriage is a benign influence on society should watch. And those who wish to fight against the idea should also view them because they give a sneak-peek into the future of Australian society if the ACT legislation legalising homosexual marriage is not overturned in the High Court.
The first is by Bill
The second is a video from the group MassResistance. It goes into great detail about how the simple recognition of homosexual marriage in the US state of Massachusetts in 2004 has led to disturbing changes in the health, legal and education systems. It describes how politicians have become cowardly and how families have been targeted. It exposes, especially, the focus on youth indoctrination as well as the removal of rights and even the peace of religious organisations to operate freely and without interference.
Whatever you might think, homosexual marriage does affect you. In the words of homosexual groups, it is just the beginning…
UPDATE: The US group, National Organisation for Marriage, has produced a short and fantastic video that clearly explains how natural marriage benefits society, while homosexual marriage harms it.
