A High Court judge in Belfast has rejected two attempts to use the judicial system to force Northern Ireland to recognise same-sex marriage. The decisions are a major victory for those who support Northern Ireland’s right to support traditional marriage between a man and a woman. In a judgement delivered today, Mr Justice O’Hara held that the rights of a man who entered into a same sex marriage in London in 2014 have not been violated by virtue of the fact that in Northern Ireland...


  It is an ill society which chooses to confuse and worry children in order to appease adults with an extreme agenda. Sadly, our national broadcaster continues to do just this. This coming Wednesday, August 16th, BBC2 will screen a documentary titled No More Boys And Girls: Can Our Kids Go Gender Free?  In the programme, Dr Javid Abdelmoneim sets out to prove that there are no significant physical or psychological differences between young boys and girls (link here). To this end a...


  This past weekend saw an important victory for freedom to dissent from the same-sex marriage agenda. The National Trust had forced its volunteers at Felbrigg Hall in Norfolk to wear multi-coloured badges and lanyards as part of ‘Prejudice & Pride’, a season of events promoting LGBT lifestyles. Those volunteers who refused to be told what to do were removed from their roles and banned from meeting the public. Thanks to a public outcry, the Trust has now backed down. Volunteers...


  Leo Varadkar, the Taoiseach of the Republic of Ireland, will attend a Gay Pride event in Belfast tomorrow to campaign against the traditional definition of marriage in Northern Ireland (link here). Mr Varadkar told the Irish Times: “I will attend the [Gay] Pride breakfast on Saturday morning in Belfast to express my support for equality before the law for Catholics, Protestants, non-religious people, men, women, gay people and straight people. “And I won’t be making any...


We are pleased to report a major backlash against the Government’s plans to allow men to register themselves as women and vice-versa. Major comment articles throughout the mainstream media, including in The Times (link here [£]), Telegraph (link here), Mail (link here) and Spectator (link here), have all attacked the idea of gender-fluidity, with most noting that it conflicts with free-speech and common sense. Politicians have also expressed reservations. In a column published on Monday...


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 (link here). In a separate article, she told the Church of England to...


Swedish church ministers have been told they cannot “refuse to marry same-sex couples”. The country’s Prime Minister, Stefan Löfven, made the comments during a recent wide-ranging interview. Marriage was redefined in the country in 2009. The Church of Sweden’s official stance is that “no priest should be obliged to officiate at the wedding of a same-sex couple.” But motions do state that the Church offers both heterosexual and same-sex marriage ceremonies. The interview is...

Germany legalises same-sex marriage

Posted on 30th, June 2017


Today, Germany’s parliament voted to legalise same-sex marriage. In a free vote, politicians decided by 393 votes to 226 to change the country’s legal code, redefining marriage as a union “entered into for life by two people of different or the same sex”. Same-sex couples have previously only been able to enter a civil union. Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, voted against the change, citing her personal belief that marriage is between one man and one woman. The law change is likely...


Plans to re-define marriage have been rejected in Lithuania. Politicians in the Lithuanian parliament struck down plans to introduce same-sex marriage by 59 votes to 29, with 20 abstentions. Vytautas Sinica, a political scientist at the country’s largest university, Vilnius University, said: “According to polls, more than 80 percent of Lithuanians are clearly against any form of same-sex partnership”. He described the vote as a “landslide decision” and an “inspiring turn...


The first ever ‘polyamorous family’ has been legally recognised in Colombia after three men were ‘married’ in a ceremony in Medellín. The men then signed legal papers with a solicitor, and released a video to Colombian media. Victor Hugo Prada, one of the three, said in the video: “We wanted to validate our household… and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family.” Same-sex marriage was legalised in Colombia last year, the fourth...
