Gay Ukip MEP David Coburn Says Gay Marriage Supporters Are ‘Equality Nazis’

Friday, October 31st, 2014

ukipGay marriage supporters are “equality Nazis” who helped push through something that only matters to “some queen who wants to dress up in a bridal frock and dance up the aisle to the Village People”, a Ukip MEP has said.

In an wide-ranging interview with the Huffington Post UK, David Coburn, who is himself gay, said that same-sex marriage, which passed into law last year, was “false bollocks” that “makes a mockery of the holy sacrament of marriage”.

“What you’re doing with the gay marriage issue is you’re rubbing people’s noses in the dirt. Everyone had agreed and been quite happy with the idea of civil partnership, it was all bedded in and people were happy with it, they got used to the idea,” he said.

“But when you go across the road to pick a fight with someone of faith, that’s not got anything to do with it, that’s the equality Nazis trying to give Christianity a jolly good kicking. You know it, I know it, we all know it – it’s false bollocks, the lot of it.”

Matthew Parris’ Poison

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Parris MatthewGay marriage illustrated it; Brendon O’Neill exposed it; and more recently the #YesScotland campaign highlighted and traded upon it: the UK’s political class is a corrupt, elitist, irresponsible, disingenuous, patronising, self-serving cartel. It must be urgently broken up and closed down.

Whatever you think of the issue itself, the gay marriage legislation last year was a democratic disgrace. Faithful one man/one woman marriage has been a defining and enduring bedrock of our society and culture – and the preeminent place of nurture for the nation’s children – for a millennium and a half.

Yet without warning, electoral mandate, Green or White Paper consultation or intelligent debate, and egged on by media, the PR industry, Hollywood celebs and the all-powerful gay lobby on both sides of the Atlantic (the UK perennially follows where the US leads), our political leaders like lemmings rushed off the marriage cliff and into the gay sea while emoting loudly and stupidly that it is “all about love”. Overnight, unitedly and unnecessarily they redefined, enfeebled and wrecked a hugely beneficial social institution.

As a consequence procreation and child-rearing are no longer primary purposes of marriage and conjugal faithfulness is no longer a primary characteristic. Marriage is no longer marriage.

This was extraordinary and irresponsible social vandalism by the Tory Bullingdon boys, their ilk in all parties and their fawning followers on the issue across the political class. Short-sighted adult gay rights today were prioritised over the weighty matters of our children’s upbringing and our society’s tomorrow. And sexual activity, identity, licence and gratification were legislatively endorsed by the Mother of Parliaments as the rising public values of our time. So, like Roman civilisation before us, hereon it’s all downhill.

Why Cameron promoted anti-gay marriage MPs during reshuffle

Sunday, July 27th, 2014

Cameron gay43 per cent of those promoted by the Prime Minister voted against the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill last year.

David Cameron promoted a string of MPs who voted against same-sex marriage in an apparent attempt to stem the mass desertion of Tory grassroots members over the issue, new research shows.

Analysis of the Conservative associations accounts, published by the Electoral Commission, shows a revolt over gay marriage was one of the major reasons why local party membership fell over the past year.

In his reshuffle earlier this month, 43 per cent of MPs – 17 out of 42 – promoted by the Prime Minister voted against the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill last year. While this proportion is similar to the amount of Tory MPs across the board who voted against the policy, it is remarkable that Mr Cameron promoted so many who effectively rebelled against the party line.

While Tory party membership has halved since Mr Cameron became leader, associations are reporting a dramatic drop in numbers as many switch to Ukip. The latest annual accounts for the Conservative associations report same-sex marriage as a major factor.

In a survey of 16 associations where membership subscriptions have fallen, same-sex marriage was cited as a reason in half of those constituencies, while national party policy was blamed in the other half.

UK Cabinet Reshuffle: Cameron culls gay marriage opponents, axes male ministers

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Cameron gayBritish Prime Minister David Cameron has targeted opponents of his flagship ‘Same Sex Marriage’ legislation, as well as reducing the number of men in the British cabinet in tonight’s long-awaited UK Cabinet reshuffle.

The move has seen older, middle class minsters dumped in an unprecedented cull, with the only two Secretaries of State who voted against gay marriage – Owen Paterson and David Jones – being sacked.

Cameron is embarking on his final ministerial changes before the general election in May 2015. Whilst no appointments are made until tomorrow news that younger women will replace the old guard is now the talk of Westminster.

Major poll finds three in ten voters will not back Tories due to same-sex marriage

Friday, May 16th, 2014

C4MI wanted to let you know the remarkable results of a major new opinion poll from ComRes, commissioned by C4M.

It looks like David Cameron’s decision to redefine marriage seems set to hurt the Conservative Party’s electoral chances in the European elections. Almost three in ten voters cite the Prime Minister’s policy on same-sex marriage as the reason why they are not backing the Conservatives.

The poll of over 2,000 people comes ahead of the local and European elections next week.

The ComRes poll:

  • Predicts a UKIP win in the Euro elections, with a scrap between Labour and the Conservatives for second place.
  • Unveils a widespread scepticism about the PM’s motives for introducing gay marriage. Six in ten people believe the Prime Minister introduced same-sex marriage to make the Conservative Party look trendy.
  • Shows that over half of those surveyed don’t believe that Mr Cameron has the determination and power to block any proposals from Europe which would undermine our freedoms.
  • Demonstrates that introducing same-sex marriage not only irked older voters but young people too, with nearly one in four 18-24 year-olds citing it as reason for not voting Conservative in the upcoming European elections.

The detailed poll results are available on the ComRes website:http://www.comres.co.uk/poll/1177/c4m-european-elections-poll.htm

As the Prime Minister was warned at the time, redefining marriage without any mandate from the British people would cost him huge numbers of votes.

We are grateful to C4M supporters who have been actively finding out the views of their candidates from across the political parties ahead of next week’s Euro elections.

The outcome of the vote next week looks set to be fascinating. We are sure the redefinition of marriage will be a significant factor.

Yours sincerely,

UKIP reiterates current opposition to same-sex ‘marriage’

Friday, March 28th, 2014

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has re-stated his party’s opposition to same-sex ‘marriage’, emphasising concerns to protect religious freedom.

Nigel Farage

Last week, UKIP’s press office released comments attributed to Mr Farage suggesting that the party’s position on the controversial legislation had changed. But in a correction, Mr Farage said that the statement ‘was not made by me and not approved by me’.

In his statement he explained, “we were concerned that because of the role of the European Court of Human Rights in British law that faith communities which had strong objections were at risk of being force to conduct gay marriages.” He re-iterated the point when asked during this week’s broadcast debate with Nick Clegg whether he supported same-sex ‘marriage’.

Mr Farage’s statement also alluded to “ongoing debate” within the party about how to protect “faith communities from ultimately being compelled to conduct same sex marriages”, noting that “some gay rights activists are already talking about taking legal action in Strasbourg to force this issue.”
