Remember me for gay marriage, says David Cameron

first_imgChristian Institute 24 June 2016Family First Comment:   In 2006, David Cameron said marriage was important whether it was between “man and a woman, a woman and a woman or a man and another man”. Three days before the 2010 General Election, David Cameron told Sky News he had no immediate plans to legalise same-sex marriage. Despite this, the Coalition Government introduced a Bill to redefine marriage, and in February 2013 it won a decisive vote on the issue. “We believe that if same-sex marriage had been put to a referendum it would have been defeated, but he chose not to give the British people a say on the redefinition of marriage.”          If that’s your greatest legacy, David, best you be gone then! #flipflop A referendum on ‘gay marriage’ would have lost in NZ also.David Cameron has placed redefining marriage among his proudest achievements, as he announced his resignation today as Prime Minister.Speaking outside 10 Downing Street following the vote to leave the European Union, he said same-sex marriage was one of the “great steps” this country had made in recent years.His move to introduce same-sex marriage in 2013 was highly controversial, with two-thirds of a million people signing a petition against the plan.‘Very proud’David Cameron said he was “very proud and very honoured to have been prime minister of this country for six years”.He added that the country had made positive moves, including “enabling those who love each other to get married whatever their sexuality”.Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn praised David Cameron over gay marriage, saying he was “very brave” and had “faced down his own party” on the issue.SaddenedThe Christian Institute’s Deputy Director Humphrey Dobson said: “Whatever your view of David Cameron’s premiership it is saddening that he has chosen to highlight this deeply controversial issue as his legacy.“We believe that if same-sex marriage had been put to a referendum it would have been defeated, but he chose not to give the British people a say on the redefinition of marriage.”In 2006, David Cameron said marriage was important whether it was between “man and a woman, a woman and a woman or a man and another man”.Three days before the 2010 General Election, David Cameron told Sky News he had no immediate plans to legalise same-sex marriage.READ MORE: http://www.christian.org.uk/news/remember-me-for-gay-marriage-says-pm/Keep up with family issues in NZ.

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis The 2nd annual Tunnel To Towers 5k Run & Walk is taking place later this year. But for now, the organization is looking for some volunteers. This is the 2nd annual Stephen Siller, Tunnel to Towers Foundation, 5k Run & Walk here in Alpena.The foundation was named after Stephen Siller, a firefighter in New York who, during 9–11 courageously sacrificed his life, by running with 60 pounds of gear, from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Twin Towers.Money raised from the event goes towards building smart homes for catastrophically injured servicemen. To continue this effort, volunteers are needed.“Registration is a big one, we have people who volunteer to take care of that because last year we had so many people we had 540 participants so we need lots of registration tables,” said Melanie Smith, Co–Chair of Tunnel to Towers. “We need people just to bring in prizes from businesses and just local areas and also people to just help direct traffic, because there’s so many people we need a lot of help doing all that,” said Smith.Along with volunteering they are accepting donations of prizes ranging from gift cards, running shoes, baskets, and more.To donate or volunteer, call 989–356–0355. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious MSP Warns Residents Of Meat SalesmenNext Ancient Discovery Made At Bay View Parklast_img read more
