OVERSEAS CASE STUDIES

As Australians we are very fortunate to be further down the line in regard to countries who have legalised same-sex marriage. Why? Because we can see how it has worked out in other countries overseas.
For many of these countries, it hasn’t worked out too well.

Let’s review how Canada, the United States, the UK and New Zealand have been affected since they legalised same-sex marriage.

CANADA

Same-sex marriage in Canada was federally mandated in 2005. Twelve years since then and Canada finds itself in the midst of a sex/gender revolution that shows no signs of slowing down. The consequences have been truly Orwellian in nature and scope.

In Canada, freedoms of speech, press, religion, and association have suffered greatly due to government pressure. The debate over same-sex marriage that is taking place in Australia could not legally exist in Canada today. Because of legal restrictions on speech, if you say or write anything considered “homophobic” (including, by definition, anything questioning same-sex marriage), you could face discipline, termination of employment, or prosecution by the government.

UNITED STATES

On 26 June, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States passed judgment on the controversial, landmark case Obergefell vs. Hodges. With a 5-4 ruling, the definition of marriage in the US was overhauled, and redefined.

Marriage “equality” supporters celebrated that their “#LoveWins” campaign had successfully stripped marriage of its man-woman definition. Same-sex couples could now have their “marriage” validated by the State, just like heterosexual couples.

But the changes over just the last two years demonstrate that the Supreme Court decision resulted in more than simple legal recognition of “marriages”.

Obergefell vs. Hodges did NOT legalise marriage equality – it redefined marriage.

If equality was all that same-sex marriage activists were seeking, then they would have been content with same-sex couples being afforded the same legal rights as heterosexual couples.

But activists want more than that: over the past two years in the United States, many of them have actively worked to ensure something other than ‘equality’ was achieved. What the redefinition of marriage did to the US was to destroy the concepts of gender, tear down protections for the two sexes, break apart the family, and trample the rights of US citizens.

Take a look at the stories we have featured about what has happened in the US since marriage was redefined.  Just as in the US, marriage “equality” supporters often times have no idea that consequences of redefining marriage are so vast.  This is why we must keep fighting. This is why we must keep warning others about the consequences of redefining marriage.

Marriage equality supporters are facing a harsh reality – redefining marriage redefines a country.

Transgender Rules: No More Fairness and Equality In Sports

US Universities Stock Men’s Bathrooms With Tampons

US Universities Stock Men’s Bathrooms With Tampons

An argument can be made for providing free sanitary items on campus for women. However, placing such items in the men’s bathrooms is an absurd virtue-signalling move that panders to transgender people. If this move was really about being “inclusive,” did anyone ask the male bathroom users whether they were comfortable with it?

UNITED KINGDOM

Four years ago, amid much uncertainty, 400 British members of parliament voted to redefine marriage in the United Kingdom.

Then prime minister David Cameron announced that, despite having made no mention of the issue in his party’s pre-election manifesto, it would be MP’s who decided the fate of marriage.

In the United Kingdom, it has become abundantly clear that redefinition has affected many people, across many spheres. At first glance, these spheres appeared distinct from marriage redefinition. However, subsequent changes, have proved that they are entirely intertwined.

NEW ZEALAND

New Zealand redefined marriage in April of 2013 to allow for same-sex marriages. The first weddings were performed in August of that year. Since then, there has been a litany of issues surrounding the decision including infringements on free speech, freedom of assembly, religious freedom and the further expansion of the LGBT agenda in redefining the most basic of social norms.

Since then, statistics show that the demand has been insignificant, and has had to be boosted by overseas couples which represent almost half of all same-sex ‘marriages’ during this period. There have been 58,540 traditional marriages of NZ residents during a three-year period since the law was changed. Same-sex marriages during that time for NZ’ers were 1,422 representing just over 2% of total marriages – despite claims of a huge demand for same-sex marriage. During the same three-year period, there were 1,260 ‘tourist’ same-sex ceremonies.

gay-marriage-poll-april-2013-herald

NZ Herald poll just before the law was changed confirmed the support for changing the definition of marriage steadily dropped during the debate. New Zealanders got past the slogans of ‘marriage equality’ and ‘discrimination’ and the debate centered around facts, such as the real purpose and role of marriage, and the fact that there is actually no discrimination in the law currently.

Politicians pushing the bill quoted a TVNZ poll from the previous year with two-thirds support for gay marriage as justification for changing the definition. But all the later polling shows that the earlier polling was not reliable.

A Family First-commissioned poll of 1,000 people in 2013 found a similar split to the NZ Herald poll, with only 47% agreeing that Parliament should change the definition of marriage to allow same-sex couples to marry and 43% saying that they believed civil unions were sufficient. This echoes a similar slide in polling by Research NZ which showed support for ‘same-sex marriage’ dropping to less than 50%, down 11% from a similar poll in 2011. The online poll from the NZ Herald (shown left) confirms just how split the country was.

Under new guidelines, primary school children as young as 5 will be indoctrinated with issues around ‘gender stereotypes and norms’, ‘sexuality and gender well-being’, ‘gender, sexuality and diversity’, and ‘gender and sexuality messages’.

If all this is happening in other countries since same-sex marriage was legalised, then we would be crazy to spurn the warnings and allow the same thing to happen here.
