The Northern Ireland Assembly has rejected same-sex marriage legislation by an outright majority for the fourth time in just three years. The outcome was narrow with 49 to 47 votes against a motion calling for the redefinition of marriage. There were three abstentions.
The fact that even after four unsuccessful attempts the issue keeps re-appearing evidences the urgent need for the defenders of marriage and family to set an agenda that pushes the promoters of sexual perversion into the defensive. One such step might be a proposal to re-introduce criminal sanctions against sodomy, another one could be a proposal to prohibit surrogacy and other forms of child trafficking predominantly used by homosexual wannabe “parents”.
