RECKLESS POLITICIANS ENDANGER BRITAIN AT HOME AND ABROAD OVER SAME-SEX ‘MARRIAGE’

Dear Marriage supporter

Britain’s national interests are being put at risk by senior politicians and civil servants in order to push a same-sex ‘marriage’ agenda, no matter the cost.

This month alone, we have seen:

Theresa May putting the constitution at risk: the Prime Minister voiced support for the introduction of same-sex ‘marriage’ in Northern Ireland, interfering with the constitutional settlement which devolves the issue to the Assembly. In a separate article, she told the Church of England to “reflect” on allowing same-sex ‘marriage’, despite considerable opposition within the CofE to redefining marriage.

Justine Greening putting children in England at risk: the Education Secretary clearly linked new legislation making Relationships Education compulsory for children as young as five to “push[ing] on with all of the [LGBT] agenda” in an interview with The Times. In a separate piece today Ms Greening alleges that churches are not “part of a modern country” if they do not perform same-sex ‘marriages’.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) putting our diplomacy at risk: the FCO recently announced that over the last year 202 same-sex ‘marriage’ ceremonies have been performed in British embassies and high commissions worldwide in countries which still adhere to traditional marriage. By flouting the wishes of the people and governments of 12 countries including Australia, China, Cyprus, Japan, Mozambique and Vietnam, the FCO puts our bilateral relationships in peril at just the time when our diplomats are pursuing post-Brexit trade deals.

Acting against convention, prudence and the national interest, those in power have allowed same-sex ‘marriage’ to deflect them from their proper pursuit of public service.

Exciting times at C4M

In late summer we will be making an exciting announcement about the Coalition for Marriage team. We will also be updating you on our campaigning strategy for the year ahead. The determination of many in public life to push same-sex ‘marriage’ even further is clear, but we believe these changes will help us counter this damaging movement even more effectively.

Thank you, as ever, for your continued support which continues to make our work possible.

Yours sincerely

Colin Hart
Chairman
Coalition for Marriage
