The problem with same-sex marriage is not that churches who wish to marry gays cannot do so, but rather, that some churches (or states) that wish not to have no choice. It would actually behoove everyone involved if the government learned from retired libertarian Ron Paul and got out of the marriage business altogether. Since governments shy away from this due to their lust for control and involvement in people’s lives, many problems arise.
Those who fail to understand this in Great Britain are moping today because “Bermuda has abolished same-sex marriage, which was legalized in the British island territory last year,” Fox News reports. It has been learned that “Bermuda’s Senate and House of Assembly passed legislation” that will replace “with domestic partnerships in December.” This is not as good as Paul’s solution, but it is a step in the right direction.
The “island’s U.K.-appointed governor, John Rankin,” put his name on the new law yesterday.
James Slack, British Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokesman, said that they were “seriously disappointed” by the alteration. This is because, as has long been the case, the left is pushing very hard to see traditional families mocked and their merit downplayed.
He added that changes had “been democratically passed by the Parliament of Bermuda, and our relationship with the overseas territories is based on partnership and respect for their right to democratic self-government.”
This shows that, even with the White House having been rainbowed, there is a way back if the people demand it. Again, the way back is to get government out of marriage completely.
Those who support tyranny for the good of the gay agenda feel that England should have prevented the change and are calling the new law discriminatory.
There is never any mention of how religious liberty is trampled by forcing the gay lifestyle into acceptance at conservative houses of worship, however. It is not just some Christian churches which frown upon such weddings, but so does Islam and many others.
Liberty is always the answer and that answer usually involves swatting Uncle Sam’s hands and getting him out of our lives and our bedrooms. Bermuda has learned this very well.
As for America? Well, we are too busy trying to decide if bakers should be forced to bake a cake against their will or not. We can’t be bothered with liberty.
