It’s the spirit of the age…..two lead news stories today.
Plans to legalise same-sex marriage in England and Wales return to the Commons later today, amid continuing opposition from some Conservative activists and MPs. The Marriage Bill was approved by a 225-vote majority when it was last debated by MPs in February, but nearly half of all Tories voted against it.
The issue of gay ministers will top the agenda at the Church of Scotland’s General Assembly, four years after the first openly homosexual minister was appointed by the Kirk.
It strikes me that this small group of homosexual activists behind the “gay marriage” meme must be feeling very content today as they dominate the news agenda. Gay Marriage is this year’s model and it will not be stopped. The same politicians who for decades have dismissed traditional marriage as no big deal, and who took away every tax break afforded a married couple, now fall over themselves to demand gay marriage. Those churches who once insisted that marriage was one man and one woman, now queue up to change the formula of hundreds if not thousands of years.
In the final analysis my view is that what we are witnessing the radical reinterpretation of marriage to suit a secular elite. Once “gay marriage” is made law. polygamy is next up for legalisation. Some gay marriage supporters have already said this to me. And after polygamy is made legal in the UK (something muslims will appreciate, although don’t be expecting a gay wedding down your local Mosque any day soon) what then? The new principle is that marriage can mean whatever you want it to mean. Politicians and churches conspire around this radicalisation and dress it up in the hollow shroud of modernity. it’s not, it’s degeneracy.
