Lucia Same-sex marriage bill drawn in Parliament

It was inevitable.

Same-sex marriage generally heralds persecution of those who disagree.

In Scotland, the Archbishop-designate Tartaglia sees himself going to jail over this issue.

“I could see myself going to jail possibly at some point over the next 15 years, if God spares me, if I speak out,” Archbishop Tartaglia said in an interview with STV News July 24

His comments came just a day before the Scottish government announced it would legislate in favor of same-sex “marriage.” Archbishop Tartaglia warned that the redefinition of marriage will have “enormous implications for religious liberty”

“I am deeply concerned that today, defending the traditional meaning of marriage is almost considered ‘hate speech’ and branded intolerant. Such a response is undemocratic, closes debate and is highly manipulative,” he told EWTN News on July 24

Last month the leading Scottish lawyer Aidan O’Neill warned that same-sex “marriage” legislation will radically undermine religious liberty in Scotland.

He predicted that a change in the law could result in employees being fired for opposing same-sex “marriage,” ministers and priests being sued for refusing to allow “wedding” ceremonies to take place in their churches, school children being forced to attend homosexual history lessons, and couples being rejected as foster parents if they oppose the new legislation

Let's hope sanity prevails in New Zealand.

Yes, lets. We'll finally have marriage equality in NZ, and not soon enough!

Lucia Maria said...

So, does this mean you will be getting married, LiberalLeftie?

LiberalLeftie said...

No, but I think equal rights is a key aspect of any civilised society, and NZ has been lacking in marriage equality for a long long time

marriage equality? - Snort

Can't happen no matter how many laws are passed because two men can't make babies together and nor can two women.

And that is what marriage is about!!!

This is satanic

"Marriage Equality" - good grief. The thinking is so warped, God has given these people over to a reprobate mind - there is no point even attempting to reason with them. The reality is that they are fashioning a weapon to persecute the church with.

Liberalleftie,

Well, you have a long way to go to get equal rights. I'd suggest agitating for the right for men to be able to bear children. That's definitely missing from NZ law right now.

I just find it really funny when atheists harp on about the ill tratment of minorities, if the implications weren't so serious, I'd die laughing.

Lucia Maria said...

Ciaron,

Yeah, it's like that, isn't it.

Be careful what you wish for! The world has no shortage of 1)bio-tech expertise; and 2)people with way more money than sense.

dad4justice said...

Oh well at lest big bruv is happy with the ill bill going by his pathological rants over at kiwibog.

On Kiwiblog, one of those who don't like our definition of marriage promptly came up with a new one when I pointed out the downstream implications of changing the definition.

Massive face palm. Somehow, only the part of the current definition that they don't like is "inequity".
