wilder extremes of political correctness.

I suppose there will be Christian ministers as well as other denominations, who would happily conduct a religious marriage ceremony for a same sex couple, as they would see nothing wrong with it.  But I wonder what might happen if a couple wanted a Catholic ceremony in the church because they really were practising Catholics who happen to believe the church is simply mistaken about same sex marriage.

Woo-hoo. I can’t wait for the first same sex couple who think they’re muslims and insist on a mosque marriage. Now that is something that just will not happen, no matter what law or opinion held sway.

I’m inventing something with that, that may well never happen. Although ….
On the other hand … if a couple of the same sex could get all bothered and have their feelings hurt by the refusal of a B&B to host them, and successfully sue, I can see a lawyer taking a case to sue God as well.
We do live in world turned upside down.

Melanie Phillips thinks so too.

Pinch yourself! A Tory (Consv) Prime Minister is upholding the idea that traditional morality is bigotry

By MELANIE PHILLIPS

On countless occasions, David Cameron has declared that he is a tremendous fan of the institution of marriage. So big a fan, it now becomes clear, that he generously intends to bestow its status and privileges far beyond what most people consider marriage actually to be.
Time and again, the Tory leader has used his promise to strengthen marriage so as to reassure people that he was fully committed to defending this core value of conservatism.
Now, however, it is becoming all too plain that he is signing up instead to the wilder extremes of political correctness.

Indeed, he is planning to go further than even New Labour dared to tread. Eat your heart out Harriet Harman, patron saint of equality!
For it was revealed yesterday that ministers are planning to change the law to allow homosexual couples to ‘marry’ in religious ceremonies, including in church.
Gay partnership ceremonies in other venues will also be allowed for the first time to contain a religious element, such as hymns or readings from the Bible. These unions will then be called ‘marriage’.
For sure, this change doesn’t force religious institutions to introduce such ceremonies; whether they do so is up to them.

But the Government’s position is anything but neutral. For it implicitly endorses the idea that there is nothing wrong with overturning centuries of Biblical understanding of the sacrament of marriage as the union of a man and a woman. As such, the Government will be cutting the ground from under the feet of religious traditionalists.
And what if churches refuse to conduct such a travesty of a marriage ceremony? Presumably, they would then risk being sued for ‘discrimination’.
Truly, we are fast reaching the stage where upholding Biblical sexual standards will become the morality that dare not speak its name.
Once again, we have to wonder at the way in which a politically motivated faction within a tiny minority of the population — for many gay people do not approve of this ideological gay rights agenda — is now running public policy.

PLEASE SEE ALL OF MELANIE PHILLIPS HERE

Just so you know.
Melanie Phillips is a very conservative and deeply religious lady, without being preachy about it. She also happens to be a very good word smith.
It was a treat to see her on Fox news when we visited home last summer.

A month or so ago she wrote in her column that the people (homosexuals) who themselves were the target of persecution, were now doing the same to anyone who dared question them or who dared be critical of them.  She sited the example of the B&B owners, who became the target of abuse in the extreme and described their behavior as the fascist activity they were labeling others with.

She then became a target of the most outrageous and hateful calls and mail which she said, surprised her in their volume. Ppl were wishing cancer on her, there were even threats to her life.  All because she wrote that the owners of that B&B were being ill treated due to their religious beliefs. If you use the link here, you can read some of foul unreasoning things aimed at her.

Look for this headline:
MELANIE PHILLIPS: The calls for me to be killed this week prove the bedrock values of our society are in danger 30/01/11

Take a look at that to see how things are and how much control a small number of “activists” can generate.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
