Same-Sex Marriage

Politicians chose to reject the obvious cultural and natural

characteristics of marriage and the subsequent creation and care of

children, and made marriage just about partnership. Despite their

grandiose view, the politicians never had the authority to redefine

marriage - and their efforts only mask reality. In ramming through this

bill in a shameful way without due consideration, and with no clear

public mandate, politicians committed an arrogant act of cultural

vandalism. The equality cause is not advanced by destroying

institutions. Equality should respect difference, not destroy it. For

millions and millions of people worldwide, marriage is a specific

culturally and historically bound institution. Proponents argued that

civil unions were an acceptable alternative, and there was no need to change the current legislation. It is

interesting to note how many MP’s voted to define marriage as one man one woman in 2005 and against civil

unions in 2004, yet flip-flopped on the issue in this vote.
