Same Sex Marriage a Cruel Charade

Same Sex Marriage a Cruel Charade

It is a very sad day for our community when members of the homosexual community are duped into playing out their belief that they now have marriage equality. Same sex couples do not have marriage equality and will never have equality. Marriage was instituted by our Creator for the happiness of mankind and the procreation of the human race. It is God’s plan that marriage is an institution exclusively for one man and one woman. It has been accepted by man since the beginning of time that God does not include same sex couples in marriage.

It was a breath-taking arrogant assumption for our Parliament to pass the Marriage   [Definition of Marriage] Amendment  bill  to include same sex marriage, in defiance of  God’s plan. God will not be mocked. No Act of Parliament can change what God has set in place for the happiness of mankind. Parliament, in passing this Bill, has inflicted a great injustice on the homosexual community and the community at large.

Only a man can make a woman a mother and a wife and only a woman can make a man a father and a husband. It is only in the traditional family that children have the opportunity to be loved and nurtured by their biological father and mother. It was a cruel charade inflicted on the homosexual community by Parliament to impose on the homosexual community this pretence that two persons of the same sex constituted marriage. Our friends in the homosexual community are important members of our community, they deserved better than this.

The Catholic Church and the Anglican Church are to be applauded for their defence of marriage as being exclusively between one man and one woman. The other Churches in New Zealand are encouraged to join them. It is disappointing that the Baptist Church has abdicated its responsibility to defend traditional marriage.

It is shameful that Air New Zealand and Tourism New Zealand were prepared to exploit a same sex marriage couple for their own commercial advantage, they should be aware that the majority of New Zealanders are opposed to same sex marriage.

The Marriage [Definition of Marriage ] Amendment Bill, is an unjust law and one that is a threat to the common good. As it is an unjust law citizens have a serious duty to refuse to co-operate with the law, to vigorously oppose the law and to work with determination for its repeal.
