Geoffrey Luck in this extract from Quadrant Online hits it out of the park. As I’ve said for many years, anyone who actually thinks this is about equality, I have a bridge I can sell you.
“…it’s hardly surprising that capital-L Love has been made the central theme of the campaign for same-sex marriage. It’s a ‘straw man’, designed to seduce the same warm and generous spirit that places thousands of flowers at every latest terrorism site.
The campaign for same-sex marriage is not about equality, it is about envy and destruction, the creation of androgynous families. In every real sense, equality already exists; homosexuals are free to love, like anyone else. Extremist activists reveal in their own words, that the objective is to “transform the very fabric of society.” So the threat is not only, or mainly to the Christian churches; it is to society as a whole.
The clever fraud of ‘marriage equality’ and the organisation of the mob may be local, but the lead, and the political strategy come from America. The author of Queer in America, Michelangelo Signorile wrote that the fight for same-sex marriage was to “debunk a myth and alter an archaic institution…the most subversive action lesbians and gay men can undertake…is to transform the notion of ‘family’ entirely.”
Should legislation redefine marriage, as the campaigners hope, there will be no end to the demands on society to pursue those ends. Schools will be the major target, and the intolerance, bigotry and refusal to allow free dissenting voices will increase. Anti-discrimination laws will be applied, paradoxically, to discriminate against critics. Already today, those who try to say that marriage should be, and always has been, about man, woman and children, are shouted down…” Sodom and Tomorrow
