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.
