On Tuesday of this week, in the British House of Lords, 242 members voted for homosexual marriage by rejecting an amendment proposed by Lord Dear, which would have denied the homosexual “marriage” Bill a Second Reading.
148 members voted for Lord Dear’s amendment and they are to be commended for so doing.
The homosexual lobby, and their supporters are naturally delighted with the result of the vote. We suspect, however, that, if they get their way, and the law is changed to their satisfaction, their interest in same-sex marriage will quickly wane, as they consider what their next demand should be.
The National Secular Society’s Terry Sanderson, penned the following words in an article in his magazine/newsletter, after the result of the vote was known,
“There will be further attempts no doubt at committee and report stage to sabotage the Bill, but it all now looks hopeless for the opponents. Same sex marriage is going to happen……..”
The Bill, entitled “Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill,” now goes to Committee stage in the House of Lords, on 17.6.13, then the next stage is the Third Reading.
