It appears that the Government’s sole priority is advancing the crunch issue of…gay marriage. Forget about the economy, forget about Education and Health, forget about immigration….NONE of these gather the same weight of Government support.

Lynne Featherstone, the Equalities Minister, has called for an end to “inflammatory” language by opponents of same-sex marriages, vowing gay unions would be law by 2015. Miss Featherstone said religious leaders had a responsibility not to “fan the flames of homophobia” in their criticism of the Government’s move to consult over same-sex marriages.

Please note the classic liberal tactic of smearing opponents whilst simultaneously pretending to argue for civility. Nice.

The Liberal Democrat minister, who made the comments in an interview with the Independent, launches the consultation exercise today. She gave a “cast iron guarantee” that civil gay marriages would be law by the next general election despite the strength of opposition from church leaders. “There is no rolling back whatsoever,” she said. “The essential question is not whether we are going to introduce same-sex civil marriage but how.”

So, despite the fact that  major Church leaders oppose it, many Conservative MP’s oppose it – we are GOING to get it because a Lib-Dem says so. If ever there was evidence of the malignancy of the Coalition, this is it. We have a pro-Gay advocacy cabal led by Featherstone without any popular support seeking to shut up all opposition.

I totally oppose what is plannned but I am no homophobe. I include gay people amongst my friends and wish them every happiness. But the situation is simple and summed up by Monty Python here…the pay off line sorts the matter out.

  1. You wish them every happiness. Except marriage, raising children, having the same right as you to stay at any hotel they choose when on vacation, the right to advocate for their rights without being dismissed being militant or a cabal, or being able to embrace their partner in public….

  2. Thing is..none of my friends who are gay seek to marry, to raise children, to bully hotel owners when on vacation or to be treated differently in any debate than someone who is not gay.
    Still, it’s their right…right, Loretta?

  3. Mahons translates as….you wish them every happiness except marriage DV.

    “Why that makes you much worse than Hitler and Ghegis Khan put together!”

    Is that pretty much what you wanted to say Mahons?

    Personally I 100% endorse what DV says. Seems fair enough to me. Camerloon is going bonkers. Just happened sooner than we thought.

  4. God bless the LibDems I say.

    Looks as though they’re finally going to kick out M’Lords Spiritual, albeit seven centuries too late.

    Perhaps we can divert that money saved towards helping the unemployed in Northern Ireland.

    The Lords take away and the Lords give 🙂

  5. Sorry, meant to preface that with a rebuttal of David’s contention that gay marriage is “the goverment’s sole priority”.

  6. David – So they are imaginary friends? Really, at your age!

    Dogisgreat – What I wanted to say, I wrote. I certainly don’t equate mere homophobia with a plan to eradicate a group from the face of the Earth. Most anti-semites for instance would never agree with Hitler’s final solution. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t anti-semites.

    The greatest irony here is the use of a clip from The Life of Brian, the title role played by Graham Chapman, a gay man.

  7. David,

    The LibDems do BOTH God and the godless. That’s as it should be in a fair society, is it not?

    Are some of your best friends gay too?

    One is I think, I may have to ask his live in boyfriend though- to be sure.

    So wishing a social grouping well makes you Homophobic does it Mahons?
    Sure your not tempted into Godwins law there sport?

    As I have said…much as I think he was an asshole I think Bliar called it about right. Civil partnerships just not called marriages.
    So given that sign me up for the Waffen SS why dontcha!

  9. Mahons,

    They are very real as my wallet can testify. One thing about the gay people I know is they enjoy good food!
    I think Chapman got the point of the sketch though….

  10. In other words, the gays can sit around the middle of the bus somewhere and be thankful for it!

  11. At last, a post on ATW against gay marraige. About time too. It’s been ages since the last one 😉

  12. Colm – I’m looking forward to the impotent squeals here when gay marriage is introduced in the near future! 🙂

  13. Phantom –

    Lynne Featherstone is the “Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Equalities”. She reports to Theresa May, who doubles up as Home Secretary and “Minister for Women and Equalities”.

    There’s no need to make it up in this country. The government is ahead of your satire.

    “Lynne Featherstone, the Equalities Minister, has called for an end to “inflammatory” language by opponents of same-sex marriages ..”

    We’ve heard too much from this vapid airhead lately. She forgets that we are the boss and she’s just the hired help.

  14. Dogisgreat – wishing a group well does not make anyone homophobic. Suggesting they shouldn’t have the same rights as heterosexuals however tends to evidence a degree of homophobia. You’ll catch on soon I am sure.

  15. No Mahons, it’s an acceptance that life isn’t always fair…and then you die.

    I suggest they ‘Man up’ and accept it. A 50yo hairy arsed builder from Macclesfield isn’t ever going to win Miss World. Thats not ‘fair’ too isn’t it. But thats just the way it is. So is the Miss World contest Hairy Arsed Builder-o-phobic?

    Marriage is 1 man 1 woman. End of.

    Congrats peeps though, for the searching for a question that nobody has actually asked.

    Next may I suggest – The moon…why can’t it be more Chinese?

  16. Dogisgreat

    Now you are a Lunarphobe and a Sinophobe to add to your NorthernBrickiephobia 🙂

  17. Oh I know what he’s suggesting but consider that he is utterly and completley wrong. Catch on?

    Now I just have to deal with my not winning Miss World…Com-pen-say-shun! Wah waah it’s not fair!!!! Wah! and so forth.

  18. 1.Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.
    2.Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.
    3.No animal shall wear clothes.
    4.No animal shall sleep in a bed.
    5.No animal shall drink alcohol.
    6.No animal shall kill any other animal.
    7.All animals are equal.

    All animals are equal but some are more equal than others.

    The Equalities Minister, England, United Kingdom, European Theater.

  19. I think that ATW needs an Equalities Minister.

    I sense gender inequality and income inequality and it must be sorted out right now.

    Who wants the job?

  20. Mahons, on March 15th, 2012 at 5:47 pm Said:
    Dogisgreat – I assumed you find life less fair than most.

    Not especially, since I found the Lord…there he was over there in the kitchen.

    That’ll be another phobia then.

  21. ‘Reg’ not only wants the RIGHT to have baybees but will complain it’s not FAIR until he IS able to have baybees.

    Truly the insane have taken over the asylum.
