On July 17th, the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill received Royal Assent and passed into law. One of the main reasons that was trumpeted in favor of this legislation was that it was to do with equality.
So man can now marry man and woman can now marry woman. But neither man nor woman can marry their pet. Neither can there be marriage to under sixteen-year-olds. And what about those who want to be wedded as a threesome and thus polygamously.
So the legislation is now immediately discriminatory. The equality issue sounds very acceptable and hard to decry, but actually it is a sham. Please dear apologists for gay marriage, if it is just about equality then you have to see the logic of where your arguments take you. If equality is your only argument then you have no argument against allowing marriage for all kinds of exotic and vile arrangements.
All this reminds us that once the principle that establishes what marriage is, that is one and man and one women for life to the exclusion of all others is lost then you are cast a adrift on a sea of man’s ideas. Oh LORD have mercy
