UK Independence Party Liverpool branch support the Coalition For Marriage campaign.
As Chairman of the Liverpool branch of UKIP, I want to encourage all our supporters, and enemies, to sign the petition started by Coalition For Marriage. On 26 September 2011, the Home Office published the following statement on its website:
" public consultation to consider how to make civil marriage available to same-sex couples will begin in March 2012, the government announced today. As part of its commitment to advancing equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals the government announced in February this year its intention to look at how legislation could develop on equal civil marriage."
The UK Independence Party opposes this change. It is revealing that the ConDem Government have decided to "consult" on how to implement the redefinition, not "if" they should redifine marriage. The fact that none of the three main political parties included this in their manifesto's tell's us a lot. They have a set agenda, and they intend on implementing it against the wishes of the public.
Only a few years after achieving Civil Partnerships, the Homosexual lobby, and their Cultural Marxist allies, are demanding Homosexual Marriage. This after assuring everyone that they only wanted Civil Partnerships.
These state sponsored lobby groups that claim to speak for "Gay" people, have been attacking one of the fundamental building blocks of our society. By stealth,they have been acheiving their aim, to undermine marriage. Stonewall does not speak for all homosexuals. Many gay people do not want this change themselves. They know there is a difference and that equality, does not necessarily mean the same.
We believe that the State is playing a dangerous game by trying to redifine marriage. After centuries of practice,who are the ConDem's trying to kid? Marriage, is the preserve of one man, and one woman, hopefully for the purposes of producing the next generation. Something that homosexuals can not do.
Another problem that this will stoke up, is further attacks against Christians. Have no doubt, once this law is brought in, it will be only be a matter of time before Churches will be targetted for not allowing "Gay Marriage". No matter what the beliefs of Christians, Muslims, or others. There will be litigation, the Human Rights, and gay rights groups will see to it.
Please take a moment to visit the Coalition For Marriage website, and sign the petition. At some point people have to make a line in the sand and say, NO FURTHER.

PM 'picking fight' over same-sex marriage
Wednesday, 7th March 2012
The Prime Minister is deliberately provoking a conflict with people of faith, and risking turning their beliefs into criminal 'hate offences', by pursuing the legal enforcement of same-sex marriage, according to UKIP.
The party's National Executive confirmed that while UKIP fully supports the concept of civil partnerships, it opposes the move to legislate for same-sex marriage.
NEC member and the party's appointed spokesman on the subject, David Coburn, said: "We are a libertarian party which doesn't believe in the government interfering in how people live their lives. We support civil partnerships, enabling gay men and women to register their long-term commitment to each other. I have fought for this all my life.
"But David Cameron seems to be saying that marriage is something else. If so, it is clearly in the domain of the church and other faiths – and it is none of government's business to meddle with it.
"It seems that, through some kind of political correctness, David Cameron is picking a fight with the millions of people whose religious faiths do not recognise same-sex marriages. That, in our view, is an aggressive attack on people of faith, and an act of intolerance in itself.
"In addition, if the government does legislate in this way, we believe that any criticism of same-sex marriage which may be expressed by someone on the basis of their faith could be classified as a 'hate crime'. That would be a grotesque assault on people's freedom of conscience."
