Forget being called husband and wife, gay rights group wants ‘parties to marriage’ in bill to legalise same-sex marriage
By Steve Doughty:
Gay rights activists are campaigning to have the words ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ erased from the statute book as part of a bill to legalise same-sex marriage.
Pressure group Stonewall yesterday released a draft bill, intended as a ‘model’ for the Marriage Bill due later this year, calling for spouses to be known as ‘parties to a marriage’ to avoid confusion for homosexual couples.
The move provoked protests from critics, who say the aim of a new law would be to destroy the traditional understanding of marriage.
Norman Wells, of the Family Education Trust, said: ‘The proposal to wipe the terms husband and wife out of the law at the stroke of a pen underlines the far-reaching implications of redefining marriage.’
He said gay rights activists wanted ‘to impose their agenda on every married couple by force of law’.
In Canada homosexuals being granted the supposed right to marry was rammed down our throats by politicians. It would have been interesting to have had a referendum on the subject but of course our political masters would never allow the rabble to exercise self-determination. No matter, Jesus Christ will be along soon.
