Skip to comments.UK: Equal Marriage is "fundamentally flawed" says new in-depth study
Posted on 12/26/2012 4:07:21 PM PST by ReformationFan
The concept of 'equal marriage' is fundamentally flawed as it presupposes a questionable notion of 'equality' and ignores the essential and defining components of conventional marriage.
Gay marriage falsely judges parenting roles as interchangeable.
Same sex marriage wrongly assumes that the benefits of marriage are automatically transferable to same-sex couples who 'enter' the same institution.
There is no evidence that same-sex couples will benefit from the 'commitment device' invoked by marriage.
Gay marriage introduces a disturbing, unproven and socially risky new norm into society, that children do not need both a mother and father for optimal development, when all the evidence points the other way.
Same sex parenting studies are fundamentally flawed in their sample size and methodology when measured against commonly accepted social science standards.
When same sex couples create children through IVF, it is a grave injustice to the rights of children, as they are unable to know and be cared for by one or both of their natural parents.
In jurisdictions where same-sex marriage is already legal, this holds the status of legal fiction.
If 'love and commitment' are the sole criteria for marriage then alarming consequences ensue, such as the validation of incestuous relationships, as well as recognition of polygamous, polyamorous relationships, as has already begun to occur in countries with SSM.
Fear of causing offence makes society tread silently around disturbing medical data from both the UK and the US that, like smoking, homosexual activity is intrinsically unhealthy. For instance unlike the vaginal lining, the rectal lining is unable to withstand penetrative activity without medical damage. The active promotion of a gay lifestyle in schools that SSM marriage inevitably entails is medically harmful for our children, especially boys, and costly to the health service.

If same sex marriages are legal, why can’t a man marry two or three women, so long as he can afford them?
Until a male, born a male, gets pregnant and delivers the baby, those invented unions will be “unequal”.
But I’m sure they’ll pass legislation to address these biological issues....
Indeed. I figure natural reproduction involving a man and a woman will probably be criminalized in a few years on the grounds that “it’s unfair to same sex couples!” who by definition cannot create a child naturally.
Or not afford them? After all, that would be “discrimination”.
Seriously, they often duck the polygamy question since they have no argument against it.
The libs will cry “That’s so unfair!” Cameron will probably pass a law requiring that men can get pregnant just like women can.
Sorry! It’s a fact of plumbing.
With the state involved, at least in the modern era, the definition it uses to recognize the institution is simply whatever judges, pols or 51% of the voting public thinks it can be at any one time. That’s it, that’s all it ever will be. Poe Leo XIII warned about it 130 years ago.
Then plumbing of course must be “homophobic”. So are plugs and electrical outlets, very “heterosexist”. I’m sure they will be illegal in a few years as well. As one of our fellow freepers so aptly put it: “Liberals make unrealistic demands on reality and reality doesnt oblige them.”
We’ll have to pass the legislation to find out what’s in it.....
This is the real crux of the problem with re-defining marriage. Once you re-define it for gays, you simply cannot say no to other redefinitions.
If it is okay for two men to be included in the definition of marriage, then (as you say) why not one man and multiple women, or vice versa, one woman and multiple men. You simply have no legal basis on which to say no to any other grouping of people that someone comes up with.
Redfining marriage for "gays" is just the beginning, it will never stop, the redefining will go on and on. Eventually the term marriage is meaninless, and then the people pushing this have won their objective. They want to be rid of marriage, and they are on their way to succeeding.
Exactly. And replace the natural family with the “benevolent” state.
Sadly, your post is accurate. These reformers don’t care for history and are destined to fail. The crazy families will leave a trail of damaged children.
Let the homos engage in civil contracts and be done with it. There’s no reason for govts to sanction the activity and persecute those that refuse to service homosexual behavior.
“Theres no reason for govts to sanction the activity and persecute those that refuse to service homosexual behavior.”
But that’s the real reason they want this. Same sex attracted individuals have enjoyed a huge amount of freedom in western culture over the last few decades. They have more tolerance in society than they could have ever dreamed of 50 years ago. However, they(or their main leaders at least) have a great desire to persecute Christians(though not Mohammedans) on this issue.
