'Gay' columnist blasts same-sex marriage: Claims state has no right to redefine meaning of family

An openly homosexual columnist in Ireland has written a piece blasting his country for considering same-sex marriage, warning the state has no business reinventing the family and undermining children’s “right” to a mother and father.

Paddy Manning, writing in the Irish Daily Mirror, tells of being arrested for hitting on a male police officer, but warns the solution to persecution of homosexuals isn’t to have government carve up traditional marriage.

“Same-sex marriage is not some warm, fluffy equality bunny; it’s a bare-faced state power grab,” Manning writes. “The state gets to entirely remake marriage, not as the man/woman/child model we’ve inherited from 10,000 years of history and across all cultures, but as an anything-goes irrelevant partnership agreement between adults.”

Manning explains same-sex unions will render marriage “irrelevant” because “for the first time, children and parenthood [will have] no place in marriage.”

“Only a man and a woman have children, despite every fantasy the gender-busters want us to believe,” Manning writes. “Every child has a right to that natural life. Same-sex marriage asks us to ignore reality and children’s rights to a mother and father.”

  1. A good illustration of the folly of assuming that someone is an enemy (or an ally) based on irrelevant factors. For example, not all gays are collectivists, and not all gun owners are advocates for liberty. Making irrational assumptions like this can cause us to alienate potential allies and to put our trust in "friends" who will sell us up the river for a nickel a piece at the first opportunity.

  2. my wife works with a gay guy. He and his partner are as conservative and patriotic as anyone that reads this web site. They are good folks and good friends. I really don't care what they do in their bedroom.

    I went to DC for Glenn Beck's 8-28 event in 2010. Those two guys were the only other people I knew in a crowd of 500,000. I talked to them on the phone but couldn't get through the crowd to where they were.

    I'm convinced there are many other LGBT folks out there just like them but in true conservative form they tend to their own business and keep their mouths shut about their business, unlike their radical, leftist friends.

      Yes and they are into Historidc Preservation a good bit which I appreciate also.
