Somebody gave the monkey his cymbals again today:Marriage will ONLY remain the bedrock of a society if it is between a man and a woman http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/artic ... woman.html
Predictably, very thin on actual logic. He waffles on about why marriage and stable couples are good for society, without giving any reason why this is exclusive to mixed-sex marriages. Eventually, after labouring the point, he rears his sock-puppet bogie man:
If same-sex marriage is legalised, schools will be forced to teach children the new definition of marriage – which will run counter to the wishes of many parents.
We know what will happen, for we have already had a taste of it – it will encourage religious discrimination. A marriage registrar from Islington believed in traditional marriage, and was disciplined by her employers for it. The elderly owners of a B&B believed in traditional marriage, and were successfully sued for it. Numerous Roman Catholic adoption agencies believed in traditional marriage, and were closed down for it.
These examples will be the thin end of the wedge if same-sex marriage is legalised.
