Statement by Core Issues Trust on the Irish Referendum on Gay Marriage

May 26, 2015 by

Core Issues Trust offers its gratitude to the many thousands of citizens who voted against changing the Irish Constitution to replace marriage as the union between one man and one woman for life, with a new concept which takes no account of the sex of the marriage partners. The Irish Government’s poll has enabled simple majoritarianism to usher in a radically new model of marriage based on the lowest possible construct: love while it lasts. Denying that all marriage is thereby redefined, the...

A polyphobic reflection

May 26, 2015 by

by Carolyn Moynihan, MercatorNet: Improbable? Preposterous? Alarmist? Perhaps. But by no means illogical. The success of the same-sex marriage campaign in Ireland has advocates elsewhere in a state of high excitement, predicting that the rest of the (Western) world must quickly fall into line and legalise this concept. What then? As we know, there is a long line of “love” interest groups waiting to stake their claims for social recognition, and at the head of the queue are polyamorists. In...

Polyamory Isn’t Good for Children

May 26, 2015 by

By James Lopez, Public Discourse: Recently, I had a discussion about marriage with someone who calls herself a “Darwinian gay feminist.” I asked her, “Is there any principled reason that marriage should be limited to only two people? There is now such a thing as a ‘throuple’—a three-way relationship. Should they have a right to marry?” She replied, “A union between three consenting adults? I see nothing wrong with it. The same goes for incest. It’s none of my business.” I take it that she was...

Nicky Morgan branded a hypocrite after backing Irish gay marriage referendum having voted against it...

May 25, 2015 by

By Helen Nianias, Independent: Equalities Minister Nicky Morgan has been accused of double standards after praising Ireland for voting to legalise marriage between same-sex couples. Morgan voted against equal marriages when given the chance to do so in 2013, saying that her Christian faith and the impression she got from her constituents led her to oppose the bill. The Irish referendum found that 62 per cent* of the electorate supported same-sex marriages, while only 38 per cent opposed the...

US Exporting Sexual Anarchy

May 25, 2015 by

By Dr Kay Baily, Jamaica Gleaner: Barely 12 weeks after his appointment as United States special envoy for human rights of LGBT persons, Randy Berry is currently paying a visit to Jamaica. The timing of his visit and the priority of Jamaica in the list of planned stops are not insignificant.

May 25, 2015 by

By Jemma Buckley, Mailonline: Germaine Greer has criticised gay parents Elton John and David Furnish for listing a man as the mother on the birth certificates of their two sons. She said the move was an example of how the concept of motherhood has ‘been deconstructed’ – before going on to criticise the process of IVF. Sir Elton is listed as the father and Furnish as the mother on the documents for their sons Zachary, four, and Elijah, two. Both children were born to the same...

May 25, 2015 by

By Larissa Brown, Mailonline: Muslim children as young as five have become so indoctrinated by Islamist propaganda they believe Christmas is sinful, Britain’s most senior Muslim police officer warned yesterday. Scotland Yard commander Mak Chishty said children had voiced opposition to marking the festive holiday – branding it ‘haram’, which means forbidden by their god Allah. He said that parents need to address ‘all the ugly bit of the problem’, and ask how children had come to that view. Mr...
