Don't say we didn't tell you: "For if we redefine marriage we redefine parenting and we
redefine family" - the first paragraph of the AMF President's new book. Words like "mother" and "father" exclude and offend genderless couples and must be rendered gender neutral.
This week, the inevitable working out of this legal logic is confirmed again in Ontario (a state in Canada which has had gay 'marriage' for a decade): The All Families Are Equal Act (Bill 28) legally redefines “mother” and “father” as “parent” to accommodate homosexual couples who obtain children through artificial reproduction like surrogacy or IVF - and because that process can involve up to 5 'parents', the meaning of family has to be 'expanded' also.
Lawyer John Sikkemar observes:
"Bill 28 erases the basic, core rule of our law that a person is the child of her natural parents and deletes all references to “mother,” “father,” and “natural parents” from Ontario statutes, replacing them simply with “parent.” ... it should not surprise us that the bill also moves beyond couples as the basic family unit. It removes the presumption in law that a child has only two parents and permits multiple people to enter into “pre-conception parentage agreement” (PCPA)."
This is sinister: as Brendan O'Neill writes in Spiked:
"The gay-marriage campaign grants the state a new, unprecedented
authority over how we define our personal relationships and family lives … The ruling elites of Canada, the UK and elsewhere have rewritten public documents to excise mentions of “mothers”, “fathers”, “husbands” and “wives” in favour of a more neutral language to suit their homogenisation of all relationships as “marriage”."
We are witnessing what socialists have sought for a century: the deconstruction of the natural family and its subjugation to the authority of the State. As Dr van Gend writes on pg. 183 of STEALING FROM A CHILD:
"In Spain and other gay ‘marriage’ jurisdictions, the eyes of government look down with indifference at the genderless relationship of all parents and all children. My child is no longer “my child” in any primal sense that government must keep the hell clear of. Parenting is now defined by government, not by nature; and what Big Government gives, Big Government can take away... The law now says there is nothing special about a man and woman getting married versus two men getting ‘married’; likewise the law says there is nothing special about a child being raised by her biological mother and father versus a surrogate baby being raised by two men. This is what excites those who favour Big Government. They understand that abolishing the natural truth of man-woman marriage abolishes the natural truth of mother, father and child; with that natural structure demolished in law, the state moves in to fill the void."
