Rivka Edelman Takes on the Eurotrash Surrogacy

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Drewitt Barlow(Rivka Edelman was brought up by a gay couple)

The Brits must have stronger stomachs than folks on this side of the pond. Or they built up some kind of tolerance to the tabloid-celebrated and deeply creepy couple Mr. Barrie Drewitt and Mr. Tony Barlow.

The picture that emerges of these two, who have reportedly amassed a fortune in the human trafficking and reproductive slavery business, is fascinating. I say this not only because they leave abusive threatening comments all over cyberspace to people they owe money to. We are talking about death threats and pathetic ramblings about being rich enough to “crush” anyone and everyone that gets in their way.

I say they are fascinating also because, perhaps, when the chickens come home to roost it could be the gay community who has been duped the most by the pair.

For anyone unfamiliar with these men they claim to be gay rights activists.

They are gaziollonaires who sued the Church of England because they always dreamed of a church wedding.

They are the “parents” of five children through reproductive slavery. They have made a suspicious fortune from sharing their obsession with designer children, with others — they run a surrogacy brokerage catering to couples who want to acquire children in exchange for cash, and need to match with the right egg “donors” and surrogate wombs for hire.

According to a recent post on the gay hook-up site Gaydar, they are into “speedos and willing to try anything once.” In all fairness they have not claimed to be monogamous. But in all fairness to their children, it’s completely wrong that when they advertised for third parties to join them for threeways, they had the bad taste to post pictures of their five children as an enticement.

Ofsted abandons inspection of Luton school after homosexuality row

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

OfstedParents of pupils at Muslim school Olive Tree primary say inspectors questioned children about attitudes to homosexuality

Ofsted staff were forced to abandon their inspection of a Muslim primary school in Luton on Thursday after being confronted by parents angry that their children as young as nine had been questioned in private about their attitudes to homosexuality.

The inspectors, including a senior employee, cut short their review of the Olive Tree primary school, an independent Muslim faith school, after the group of parents said they would withdraw their children from the school as long as the inspectors remained.

Ghulam Shah, a parent of one of the children interviewed by the Ofsted inspectors, said his 10-year-old son was upset by the way the questioning was carried out, and that as a parent he was concerned he had not been told the inspectors would be discussing sex with his children.

“He was sat with a male adult who looked him in the eye and said, ‘What do you know about gays?’ What that made him do, it made him panic, and he said ‘I don’t want to continue this conversation,’ because he felt scared, intimidated,” said Shah. “It’s horrible for a child to be in a room with somebody they’ve never met before, who’s not with a teacher and not with a parent.”

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,

NHS chiefs tell ministers: Change sex education lessons to make all pupils learn about gay marriage

Friday, May 16th, 2014

gay handsHealth boards write to the Scottish Government protesting at new guidance that would allow teachers or pupils to opt out of sex education lessons

SNP ministers are under major pressure from Scotland’s health chiefs to ensure all pupils learn about gay marriage in sex education lessons even where it is against their teachers’ or parents’ religious beliefs.

The country’s largest NHS boards have written to the Scottish Government protesting against new draft guidance for sex education lessons that would allow teachers or pupils to opt out on the grounds of “conscience”.

They argued it would be “extremely concerning” if teachers could refuse to oversee such an essential part of the school curriculum and “alternative arrangements” to ensure gay marriage is taught should always be made.

Allowing children to withdraw from sex education lessons on the grounds of conscience risks them coming under pressure from parents opposed to gay marriage, the health boards warned.

Instead they argued that the guidance should include greater protections against parents mounting campaigns against the content of the lessons. Children should be given the power to overrule their mothers and fathers, it was suggested.

Council officials tell churches they ‘must’ register for same-sex weddings

Monday, May 12th, 2014

gay church weddingCouncil officials have apologised after writing to churches appearing to order them to register to conduct same-sex marriage ceremonies despite repeated Government assurances that they would not be forced to carry them out against their beliefs.

Essex Registration Service wrote to all churches in the county approved as wedding venues, informing them that “with immediate effect” they “must” apply for a licence to carry out same-sex weddings.

The word “immediate” is underlined and in bold characters in the letter which then orders the churches to contact the General Register Office.

The Marriage (Same-Sex Couples) Act, which came into force in England and Wales in March, contains a complex “quadruple lock” of legal protections designed to ensure that clerics would not be forced to marry couples of the same sex against their beliefs or be sued for refusing to do so.

It was written into law by the Coalition in an attempt to reassure religious groups who campaigned against the introduction of same-sex marriage that their beliefs would be protected.

The Harms of Homosexual Marriage

Ireland and Pantigate

Monday, May 5th, 2014

By Paddy Manning

Truth, said Aeschylus, is the first casualty of war.

The first casualty of the same-sex marriage (SSM) debate is free speech. You can’t promote an idea that flawed if someone can argue against it.

Here in Ireland we have seen a debate open up, much to the horror of the liberal elite for whom the subject is settled, on the subject of SSM. The predictable reaction was a concerted effort to rein in free speech and argument.

As a gay man I have always disliked drag artistes playing a self-appointed role as representatives of the putative gay “community”.

Drag represents gay people the way Aunt Jemima represents African Americans or Speedy Gonzalez, Hispanics.

One night, the drag artiste, business man & professional self-promoter Panti Bliss/Rory O’Neill was the guest on a government-owned TV chat show. I was not viewing. O’Neil’s performance, a crude attempt to silence those he believes were the most potent voices against redefining marriage, played out such that I had to view the segment later.

When the pub owner denounced public commentators who were “homophobic,” he was asked by the host Brendan O’Connor to name those people.

O’Neill listed columnists John Waters & Breda O’Brien by name but threw in the all the people involved in the tiny, pro-family, socially conservative Iona Institute as a group.

What O’Neill, with the clear connivance of his host, Brendan O Connor, was attempting was the demonisation of the opposition to SSM. It was pre-emptive ad hominem. John Waters and Breda O’Brien do not oppose redefinition of marriage and the diminution of children’s rights from a logical viewpoint; they have a pathological fear and loathing of gay people. Worse, their very arguments hurt gay people and directly encourage brutal physical attacks on them. Monsters!

Nothing to see here, folks, just some scared beasts lashing out. Don’t you listen to anything they say.

Eich BrendanBy Brendan O’Neill

Stop treating Brendan Eich as a one-off – gay marriage is inherently illiberal.

It’s four weeks since Javascript inventor Brendan Eich was hounded out of his job at Mozilla by a virtual mob of intolerant tweeters and campaigners. His crime? Failing to genuflect at the altar of gay marriage, which is now the closest thing our otherwise godless, belief-lite, morally vacuous societies have to a sacred value. For refusing to bow down before this new sainted institution, and for having the temerity to donate money to a campaign group opposed to it, Eich was found guilty by the mob of sacrilege and was hounded out of public life as a modern-day heretic.

And in those four weeks, some gay-marriage backers, feeling more than a little red-faced, have called for the zealots in their camp to get a grip. The treatment of Eich was an example of what happens when bad-apple activists turn crazily self-righteous, they say. British-American writer Andrew Sullivan says the witch-hunting of Eich speaks to the ‘fanaticism’ of certain campaigners, which apparently runs counter to the gay-marriage movement’s desire to create a more ‘tolerant and diverse society’. This week, prominent American liberals and libertarians published an open letter headlined ‘Freedom to Marry, Freedom to Dissent: Why We Must Have Both’, which says the Eich episode showed the ‘eagerness [of] some supporters of same-sex marriage to punish rather than to criticise or to persuade those who disagree’. ‘Enforcing orthodoxy hurts everyone’, the letter says, and gay-marriage campaigners must lobby for the ‘freedom to marry’ in a less hysterical fashion.

It is always refreshing to see people stand up for the freedom to dissent, especially on an issue like gay marriage, on which there’s an astounding amount of nodding-dog conformity.

Same-sex marriage: NI Assembly rejects motion for third time

Sunday, May 4th, 2014

StormontThe Northern Ireland Assembly has rejected a motion calling for the introduction of same-sex marriage during a debate at Stormont.

A total of 51 assembly members (MLAs) voted against the Sinn Féin motion, while 43 MLAs voted in favour.

It is the third time in the past 18 months that Stormont has rejected same-sex marriage.

Northern Ireland is now the only part of the UK which has not passed a law to introduce same-sex marriage.

The first gay marriages have recently taken place in England and Wales, with Scotland due to follow later this year.

Ahead of the latest Stormont vote, the human rights organisation Amnesty International said Northern Ireland politicians would not be able to block same-sex marriage indefinitely.
