Video: Coalition for Marriage Launches in UK!

 

A group forming to oppose redefining marriage in England has released a video of their launch event.

Colin Hart of The Christian Institute says during the presentations: "Marriage was not dreamt up by government ... this government cannot simply overturn thousands of years of history by redefining it, especially when no political party made it part of their election manifesto."

During the Q&A, Fiona Bruce, Conservative MP, says: "A committed relationship between a man and a woman gives children the best opportunity to flourish in terms of health, education, and welfare. And we alter that, change that, at our peril. And it's the children who will pay a price. And that's why I'm so concerned and that's why I'm here today."

    - A union where the sex of the other person has “nothing” to do with it.
    - A union where the sex of the other person has “everything” to do with it.

    They are, at their very core, complete opposites.
    How do you make equality of these two things?
    You don't.

    How do you respect each one.
    You start by giving each its own name.

    Just to add that the push for equality is lead by the conservative prime minister!

    Good for them. I hope they're prepared for the onslaught of hate and persecution that will undoubtedly be unleashed on them.

    It's difficult to free yourself from the nanny state once they've taken over your life, but I'm confident these folks can do it. I'm happy for them.
