(Scottish) Cardinal O’Brien’s call for referendum on homosexual marriage has gays running scared
Protect the Pope ^ | 7/16/2012 | Rev Mr. Nick Donnelly

Cardinal Keith O’Brien’s call to the Scottish government to hold a referendum on homosexual marriage because of the intense public interest in the recent consultation has gays objecting with all kinds of lame excuses, suggesting they’re scared of allowing normal Scottish people having a say on the future of marriage.

‘Cardinal O’Brien, leader of the Catholic Church in Scotland, said the marriage consultation received three times more responses than the government’s consultation on the independence referendum, which saw more than 26,000 people share their views. The Scottish government’s consultation on unnatural marriage between men-men, women-women saw more than 80,000 responses.

Cardinal O’Brien also said:

‘”Clearly, if it is sensible to hold a referendum on independence, it is crucial that we have one on marriage,” he said, adding: “It is the only way the country can move forward on this issue.

“Let all those who have a view on this subject place their trust in the Scottish people and let Scotland decide.”

The disordered sexual attraction charity The Equality Network said a referendum would result in the “Americanisation” of Scottish politics, with big-money campaigns run by professional lobby groups.

The organisation’s policy co-ordinator Tom French, said: “Our MSPs were elected on clear manifesto commitments to consider the evidence, and decide, and we have confidence in them to do that.

“A referendum would be un-Scottish, unfair and a colossal waste of taxpayer’s money.”

So following that logic it would be un-Scottish, unfair and a colossal waste of taxpayer’s money to hold the planned referendum on Scottish independence.

A Scottish government spokeswoman said: “The cabinet have had a first discussion on the next steps following the consultation on same sex marriage and the registration of civil partnerships and have asked for some further detail.

“We fully expect to be in a position to publish the way ahead this month.”

Protect the Pope comment: Judging by the response from the Scottish government spokesman it appears that Alex Salmond is going ahead with plans to legalize unnatural marriage without a referendum. No doubt he shares the same fears as the gay lobby that if it came to a vote the normal people of Scotland would reject the madness of marriage between men-men, women-women.  This is just another example of the arrogance of the ruling elite, and their unfathomable thralldom to perversion.

Betcha they’d be all over it if they thought the vote would go their way.

Folks, this issue isn't about "Consenting adults" or "bedroom privacy" or "individual or civil rights" like the advocates of homosexual marriage dishonestly and vehemently insist.

"Gay Marriage" is the "Trojan horse" method of attack by homosexual activists and advocacy groups in the effort to legitimize the perverse behavior of homosexuality in the courts and by legislation. Should homosexual marriage be legalized then by judicial fiat homosexuality would be legitimized across the board. This means that school children by law would be taught that homosexual behavior is a "safe" and "normal" alternative "sexual lifestyle" choice and by law parents will have no grounds to object (regardless of the negative spiritual, moral, psychological, biological, and medical consequences) IOW unconditional approval and acceptance, kowtow or else.

Discrimination: is a word whose political redefinition originated in the civil rights movement. In normal usage, discrimination is synonymous with discernment, but as used in a civil rights context it means irrational bias against a person. "Irrational" is the hidden qualifier in the term that distinguishes appropriate discernment from prejudice. In an enlightened society there can be no rational basis for discrimination on criteria such as race, skin color or ethnicity. However, as with multi-culturalism, the introduction of morally significant criteria changes the analysis of discrimination. Discrimination against harmful conduct is entirely rational, and in many cases necessary.

Discrimination is now synonymous with racial prejudice in the public mind. The "gay" movement has exploited this association to legitimize its own claims by adding itself to the list of minorities in anti-discrimination statutes.

Moral discrimination is "rational" discrimination.

Absolutely. Well stated. The idea that ANY form of discrimination is ipso facto a wrong thing has been rooted in the minds of Americans and others due to the link with civil rights. By this reasoning, it is a hateful and bigoted thing to distinguish homosexuality in any way from its counterpart. Of course you are correct RE same sex marriage being a Trojan horse: It is the one vehicle which will fling open ALL the doors.
