Homosexual Marriage: Everything Will Change

Consider this headline: ‎“An equal opportunity commission board member who signed a submission against same-sex marriage has resigned.” A respected doctor and community leader has been forced to resign for a horrific crime: yes, he dared to say marriage was between a man and a woman, and children deserve to be raised by their own biological mother and father. I wrote about his story earlier: www.billmuehlenberg.com/2012/05/13/finally-some-good-news-and-some-common-sense/

The homosexual mafia have once again got their way and shown their true colours. They are destroying freedom and democracy slowly but surely. Every day we witness another example of the pink jackboots in operation. It is getting uglier by the day, and shows no signs of letting up.

For years now I have been documenting the constant war which is being waged against those who value marriage and family, those who value freedom, and those who are people of faith. All three have been heavily hammered by homosexual activists and their supporters in high places.

Here I offer just some recent examples of this. They are only the tip of the iceberg, but they very nicely demonstrate the battle we are in, and how special rights for homosexuals in general, and homosexual marriage in particular, will change everything. With so many examples to choose from, and so little space here, let me just offer the headline, date, and perhaps the opening paragraph of each recent news item. I will begin with last year and move up to more recent times:

All this is just the tip of the iceberg. As more special rights laws and homosexual marriage bills are passed, we will see more and more of this sort of thing. Freedoms will inevitably be stripped away. And the activists know this is and clearly desire this.

In the light of all this, if you are still not convinced, then simply look at what has happened in the American state of Massachusetts. Ever since they legalised homosexual marriage back in 2004, all hell has broken out. This is all very nicely documented in this very important paper which we all need to carefully read: www.massresistance.org/docs/marriage/effects_of_ssm.html

Homosexual marriage changes everything. Who will be the next one to be fired, fined or tossed into jail?
