New marriage bill will destroy the family unit

I am disappointed with the House of Commons for voting to approve a bill legalising same-sex marriage in Britain.

Marriage is an institution that predates civilisation and is exclusive to one man and one woman who have the responsibility to procreate the human race. Neither church nor state invented it and neither can change its nature.

This new "gender ideology", increasingly imposed on society by Western governments, destroys the understanding of the family as a community designed for the rearing of children. In this radical new understanding of sexuality, children become mere objects of adult possession.
