This is what happens when people choose to vote for a pretend Conservative to lead their Party;
David Cameron yesterday promised that gay marriage will be legalised by 2015, as he compared Church opposition with Conservatives who once ‘locked out’ homosexuals from the party. The Prime Minister also paid tribute to Tony Blair for paving the way by introducing civil partnerships.
Scotland, under the rule of the SNP, has already declared that it will legalise gay marriage too.
Of course, none of the major Churches are happy about this but this is all about placating gay activism, not faith activism.
As I have frequently argued, the State can do what it wants re “gay marriage” but MARRIAGE as a religious institution must not be disfigured and Churches must NOT be forced to conduct service in their premises. (We’ll leave Mosques aside for the time being, shall we, but it would be interesting to understand how many Imams will conduct the marriage of Mohammed and Mohammad? The media tends not to focus on this side angle for some inexplicable reason..)
Now, when I put forward this argument, all good liberals say that they rather agree that Churches should NOT be bullied and legally threatened into conducting a gay marriage ceremony on their premises. The only problem with that…..is THIS. What is happening in Denmark today will happen in the UK by 2015. There may be a legal opt out for some individual clerics but NOT for the Church. Gays are going to the chapel and they ARE going to force the church to marry them. It’s not about equality, it’s about the tyranny of the minority being institutionalised by the State. Cameron is the enemy of conservative values and his sickening capitulation (or is it embrace) of this issue tells you all you need to know about him
