It has been a truism in the past few decades that whenever special rights and especially marriage rights are granted to homosexuals, then there will be a corresponding loss of freedoms for everyone else. Democracy is weakened, freedom is undermined, and a soft tyranny ensues.
There are now many, many hundreds of examples of this, and I have documented one case after another of this. Everything changes when homosexual marriage is legalised, and the rest of society suffers as a result. The case of New Zealand is a perfect illustration of all this.
Since that nation legalised homosexual marriage on April 17, the bitter fruit has already been made manifest. For example, the idea of a slippery slope, which the activists claim does not exist, is already in full view. Within days of the vote on marriage, other activist groups came out of the woodwork demanding their “rights” as well.
This is how one New Zealand media outlet began the story: “A group is calling for the Government to consider legalising multi-partner marriages. The group set up a Facebook page just before the Marriage Amendment Bill passed through Parliament last week, legalising gay marriage.
“A statement on the page described multi-partner – or polyamorous – marriage as ‘responsible, adult, committed non-monogamy,’ and said all committed loving relationships between adults regardless of number should be respected and given legal acknowledgement.
“‘Some Australian Greens have now got a lobby group going, there are several MPs around the world coming out as poly and poly-friendly and it seems the time is right to at least bring it to the attention of the New Zealand public and New Zealand parliament,’ the group said. ‘This will be a long-term project but with the rest of the world getting on the bandwagon legal multiple partner marriages/unions may one day be accepted’.”
Of course every time we suggest such moves will inevitably follow the legalisation of homosexual marriage, the activists and their media clones mock, ridicule and pour scorn on such ideas. So just how many more examples of this do we need here?
And already the legal repercussions are being felt. As I have often said, whenever the government legalises something, that means there will be corresponding obligations and duties to ensure that these rights are met. Everyone must bow to these new “rights” and if they do not they will face the heavy hand of the law.
Consider these two new developments, which both made the news yesterday. First, a homosexual training to be a priest is now taking the Anglican Church to the courts. The story begins this way: “A homosexual man is taking the Anglican Bishop of Auckland to the Human Rights Tribunal after being rejected for training as a priest. A hearing begins today following a complaint from the man, who says he feels discriminated against because of his sexuality.
“It is understood the man – who is in a sexual relationship with his partner – has wanted to enter the church’s training programme for priests for years. But after applying to enter after years of study, he was rejected by the Bishop Ross Bay, who approves entrants. Bishop Bay told One News last night that he was simply following the church’s doctrines.
“The man was rejected ‘by reason of the defendant not being chaste in terms of canons of the Anglican Church,’ the bishop said. That means that anyone wanting to become ordained needs to be in what the Anglican Church deems to be a chaste relationship – a marriage between a man and a woman or committed to a life of celibacy.
“In a statement to the tribunal, the complainant says he ‘felt totally humiliated that I had spent six years of my life in study, for a process that I was not permitted to enter because I was a gay man and in a relationship. My humiliation and disappointment continue to this day’.”
So this homosexual wants us to get out the violins, and he seems to think the church should change its centuries-old policies, based on the clear teachings of the Word of God, so that he can take his sinful lifestyle into the church. Umm, I don’t think so bud.
But wait, there’s more. Those who refuse to countenance homosexual marriage will also feel the wrath of the state. Just ask the NZ pro-family group, Family First. Now they are facing the music, by daring to disagree with the homosexual marriage ruling. Says one report: “Family First NZ says it will be deregistered as a charity because of its views on gay marriage. National director of Family First Bob McCoskrie said the group has received notification the Charities Commission intends to deregister the organisation.
“He said the decision was highly politicised and showed groups that think differently to the politically correct view will be targeted. ‘The Commission argues that Family First’s efforts to represent the voice of 80 per cent-plus of families on the anti-smacking law or half of New Zealanders on attempts to redefine marriage, for example, have no ‘public benefit’, and that it is in the ‘public interest’ for Family First to be deregistered.’
“He said the timing of the notification was cynical, in that the Commission deliberately held off until after the final reading of the gay marriage bill, despite saying a final decision would be made at the end of January. Mr McCoskrie said other reasons given for deregistration were that it had held a conference and invited speakers that promoted its viewpoint, and that it invited people to join. ‘But it did say that one of the things was that we supported a view of family that was not in the public interest’.”
There you go – a few short weeks since the passing of the law, and already the crackdown has begun in earnest. And these are quite early days yet of course. We can expect to see many more cases of anti-Christian bigotry and statist attempts to squash all those who believe in heterosexual marriage in the coming days.
The war has begun, and is getting worse by each passing day. As I keep saying: homosexual marriage changes everything.
