Should Gays be Allowed to Marry Legally?
Soon to be a common sight
Same-Sex marriage would seem to be inevitable
We seem to have an awful lot of focus on the Gay community at present, mainly concerned with their future ability to tie the knot legally.
They don’t look like getting past the staunch stalwarts of the Catholic Church, no doubt well backed by the Vatican. Chasing little chaps around the altar is one thing, but actually letting homosexuals confirm their vows under the cross is quite another.
Where castigating gays is concerned I often wonder who should cast the first stone.
Many blokes I know had homosexual experiences at one time or another in their lives, yet they would never describe themselves as “Gay.”
I mean, I’m as hetro as the next bloke, on the whole, (as it were). But I once had a rather cute able-seaman (either spelling would be equally true!), known all round the HMS S-------d as “Fifi, (I’ll spare his family if he’s still around by withholding his real name, although this was about 50 years ago). He often used to pop around to my hammock (yes, we slept in one…really) to shake, er, hands before he retired, which was polite of him and did relieve the stress of splicing rope, scrubbing the decks and other nonsensical miscellany.
And we had often been at sea for some weeks without the company of what we all desired, young pliant girls.
But with demob and the ‘coming or maturity, the other sort faded and became but a distant memory.
I was a straight heterosexual and have remained so ever since, and have four ex. wives who could prove it.
So how would I vote about giving guys or gals a “yes” vote to get legally married?
To tell you the truth, I could care less. I am not religious, so the rectitude of the Catholics makes me no mind.
As gays are legally adopting children these days, it would seem in the kid’s interests if dad and dad’s (or mum and mum’s) union has all the legal backing of the state in the event problems occur as they will just as in heterosexual marriages.
And I honestly see many gays are truly committed partners and love one another just as man/women partners do.
(A good example is Elton John and David Furness’ marriage).
Very few gays molest young adults these days (I am not quite so worry-free about lesbians in sports).
Of course, outright pedophilia as quite another thing and indeed a huge problem in our society, yet so is heterosexual date rape with “roofies,” and the kidnapping of young girls to become prostitutes. Not to mention the violence towards women in marriage.
None of this would be affected if gays were allowed to legalize their union…and they will only do that with state permission anyway in the UK.
The gay lobby is very powerful. There is little doubt they will have this law approved.
But I dearly wish they would cut out same sex men and girls kissing on programs like Eastenders.
You producers remember, the older and more traditional members of British society grew up thinking homosexuality is a bad and decadent thing.
They are gradually dying so you will soon be able to do it all on national television. Just like we regular people!
