We are informed in the Catholic Herald that the first chink in the ‘Homosexual Marriage’ farrago has occurred in Bermuda. Seems as if the People, when asked, definitely said ‘Thus far; and no Further’ to the ‘same-sex’ battalions in that definitely-conservative (in the truest possible sense of the term) British Overseas Territory.
They had a Referendum, asking the question if the Islanders wanted to legalise Homosexual Marriage, and the Island stated “No”; but the vote was queried because only 47% of voters went to the polls.
A homosexual Bermudian and his Canadian “partner” went to the High Court, and a single judge overruled the Parliament, and stated that the pair could ‘marry’. Loud scenes of jubilation’ no doubt.
A subsequent election led to a change of government, and last week the House of Assembly passed a measure restoring the traditional definition of marriage. Domestic partnerships, a form of civil partnership, will now be available to same-sex couples instead of marriage. This is significant and encouraging news. Same-sex marriage is not irreversible. Determined public pressure can influence politicians to restore the traditional definition of marriage.
Unfortunately for we Brits, we have a Education Secretary with her own homosexual agenda, a weak Prime Minister who couldn’t stand against a 2 m.p.h. Breeze; a polyglot mob of homosexual clowns in Westminster; and a dearth of politicians who would act in concert against the ‘PinkMob’. So, in the meantime, congratulate Bermuda for seeing a return to traditional values, where Marriage has regained the lustre shed with the judgement of one man!
And the best bit? The first ‘Homosexual Marriage’ cruises were scheduled for January. A change to the law in Bermuda could be a major spanner in the works for cruise liners based in Bermuda. Bermuda-based cruise line P&O Cruises has already begun taking bookings for same-sex weddings at sea, with ceremonies beginning in January 2018.
As the company’s fleet is primarily registered in Bermuda, it was able to offer legally-recognised homosexual unions at sea under Bermudan law. No longer. Good news!
