Redefining marriage opens the door to everything being reconstructed to suit the preferences of the LGBTI lobby. In countries where same-sex marriage has been legalised, the known consequences have already proved more drastic, far-reaching, and ludicrous than presupposed.
A recent case reveals that not even historically based figures are impervious to being reworked for the LGBTI agenda. Metro-UK reported:
Mark Thaler, from California, had made two Christmas tree decorations – one with two Josephs cradling baby Jesus, and another with two Marys.
The cute ornaments were being sold for £13 on Thaler’s Zazzle.co.uk shop Pride and More.
However, rather than surrender such historical figures to be used as LGBTI propaganda, activists spoke up against the ornaments. Many felt that the design was an attempt to normalise same-sex marriage in younger generations, and to overtly mock the faith of Christians who would recognise the egregious portrayal for what it is. Concerned citizens called out the designer for reworking a religious narrative to suit the preferences of the LGBTI agenda:
‘They blasphemously portray the Lord Jesus being parented by a homosexual couple. What depths will the LGBT lobby stoop to in order to try and normalise their behaviour?’
In an encouraging example of the power of raising your voice, the complaints convinced the designer to remove the ornaments from his website. But the story still illustrates that nothing is sacred in a post- same-sex marriage world. Now that same-sex marriage has been legalised in the US and the UK, activists have taken it upon themselves to rewrite history according to an LGBTI narrative. If you think that the LGBTI agenda stops after same-sex marriage is legalised, you are may unfortunately be very misled. They’re coming after your beliefs as well.
As Australians continue to debate the issue of legalising same-sex marriage in Australia, it is imperative to remember that same-sex marriage is only the tip of the iceberg. If we allow marriage to be redefined, we will open the door to many other facets of our life to being forcefully reworked. The case of the same-sex nativity ornaments sends a clear message: marriage, religion, and history will be redefined if marriage is overhauled – and that is only the beginning.
