List of UK MP’s who actively support organisation with homophobic views and supporters.

Recently NOM linked to a report on a leaflet campaign going on right here in the UK by a group called Coalition for Marriage – CfM. They reported how CfM were targeting the populace of UK constituencies whose Members for Parliament – MP’s – were considered a ‘swing’ vote in the upcoming bill to run through the House of Commons regarding equal marriage treatment for homosexual couples. Their plan was to distribute a million leaflets urging people to contact their MP’s and tell them not to vote for legal equality.

The UK already has ‘civil unions’, which, while affording more rights to gay couples, is still not entirely equal. Speaking as someone who already has one and has a lawyer for a partner, let me tell you we are NOT, repeat, NOT on an equal legal footing whatsoever. Hence why the bill is going through. Now, support for equal rights marriage in the UK has generally been positive, due to a combination of lower rates of religious following, openly gay public figures and celebrities, and, in general, a culture more open of acceptance and tolerance.

This little featurette by NOM intrigued this admin, and I began digging a little into CfM. Their website, found in this link, basically argues all the same points as NOM – man and woman, redefining – as if that hasn’t already been done before, religion, blah blah blah. Nothing indicating that marriage is actually a legal concept and has nothing whatsoever to do with religion other than having a ceremony commemorating this fact.

It also has a long list of signatories, including many former and current serving MP’s. They have assigned their name and position to this group. Which means they ascribe to CfM’S ideals. As do the people who post on the Facebook wall. Who post some quite homophobic messages.

Which is why we are today posting the list of supporters, tagging them, and associating their names with the kind of hate speech they seemingly support. In supporting Coalition for Marriage, they also support the views of the organisation and their supporters. Here they are;

List 2 of 2

All of these people have publicly associated their names with the kind of homophobic hate-speech as listed below.

NOManiacs 200113c

 

The old insult of ‘perverts’ surfacing again.

NOManiacs 200113d

Once again we see the anti-gay side focusing on something that not only doesn’t exist, but also is none of their business, but also hyperbolic to the extreme. Plus an insult thrown in for good measure.

NOManiacs 200113e

No, there isn’t. And why again with all the focus on the sex livesIt’s not only an obsession, it’s quite disturbing.

NOManiacs 200113f

So, basically, be gay but be quiet about it. Sorry, we locked the closet door after we came out and threw away the key.

NOManiacs 200113g

 

The Regenerus study in question has been refuted and disproved for countless faults and failures in the study sample. Countless studies since and recently have proved that children growing up with same sex parents are no less worse off than those with opposite sex parents.

NOManiacs 200113h

Again, see above point. Also try acting like you care about single-parent families. If ‘mother and father’ are that important, after all.

NOManiacs 200113i

 

Greyed out due to it being reported. We are not ‘anti-Christian’. We are anti-you-telling-us-what-to-do-based-on-your-own-personal-beliefs. There are many studies that show that it is a largely biological reason that decides on sexual orientation, so it is not an excuse. Even if it were a choice, why should that make a differenceYou chose a different religion than others. Why should you be afforded any ‘acceptance’ for your choice?

NOManiacs 200113j

Another horrible attempt to compare and equate homosexuality with paedophilia. Nothing more to say. Remember, MP’s, you condone these comments.

NOManiacs 200113k

 

More simple insults against the LGBT community. Al taken from the public page that these MP’s support.

NOManiacs 200113l

Again, a slippery-slope, straw-man argument that claims allowing gays to be married will allow paedophiles to marry children. Despite the fact that there is a legal age of adulthood that does not allow anyone under a certain age to sign a contract, due to intelligent and emotional development.

NOManiacs 200113m

This basically speaks for itself. Both Davids basically show their disdain for gay couples.

 

MP’s listed here. I hereby give yourself a chance to distance yourself from an organisation like this that not only allows oft-refuted anti-gay hate speech to remain on it’s boards for over a week, but has also seen fit to associate your names with it. Whatever your personal religious feelings, public association with hateful comments like this will only cause discord amongst your LGBT constituents, whom you are duty bound to represent in terms of the law, not religion. We await your reply.

    Those MP’s are standing for truth and morality against the excesses of the English aristocracy (who historically have been, on average, more perverted than the general population.)

    Matthew 19
    4And he (Jesus) answered and said unto them, Have you not read, that he who made them at the beginning made them male and female,
    5And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they two shall be one flesh?
    6Therefore they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.
    I think it is obvious from this as to what Jesus believed marriage to be.

      I also think that spamming my page with Bible quotes is not only rude but also highlights that you haven’t the foggiest idea of what marriage actually is. The fact that the New Testament was written over a hundred years after the alleged events, and mistranslated through many centuries and several languages aside, your personal beliefs have the square root of sod-all to do with the LEGAL concept that is marriage. Believe what you will, I don’t mind that. But stop forcing it on people who don’t want it. That I do mind. I don’t need a church to be married, certainly not to feel equally treated with my fellow humans, so why does the church feel the need to tell me that I do?

      Lesson over. Take your preaching elsewhere as it is only aggravating this spectacular post-Superbowl hangover…
