Few Gays Opt to Marry

Despite the example set by these Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers, less than one-in-20 gays took advantage of Canada's decision to legalize marriage in June 2005, according to a census a year later.
Gays make up just 0.1% of all married couples in Canada, a proportion consistent with other countries that permit same-sex marriage.
In other words, the definition of the most important heterosexual institution was changed to satisfy one couple in one thousand.
This information is crucial to the US where only Massachusetts now permits same-sex marriage but as many as eleven other states are considering it.
In terms of numbers, Statistics Canada calculated that about one percent of the Canadian population are gay or bisexual, well below the estimates we normally hear. (StatsCan Daily “Community Health Survey”, June 15 2004, p. 9) This works out to 316,900 people. The 2006 census found 7465 married same-sex couples, fewer than 15,000 men and women.
Roughly a quarter of Canadian gays (75,000) prefer “common law” relationships. There is no way to gauge their permanence or exclusivity.
The vast majority of homosexuals don't want gay marriage. It is being foisted on them and on society by elite social engineers using the media, government and a few activists. The goal is to undermine heterosexual marriage by obscuring its true character. The purpose is to destroy the family and render society more vulnerable to a veiled world government dictatorship.
GAYS DON'T WANT MARRIAGE
The majority of gays regard same-sex marriage as a diversion from more important issues. This view is expressed by Gareth Kirby in an editorial in Capital Xtra, an Ottawa gay newspaper, Oct. 18, 2007.
“Remember the headlines...that claimed we were flocking to city hall and churches to get the deed done as courts legalized same-sex marriage in province after province? ...It was a lie. Very few among us are eager to embrace marriage rights...
“Didn't we just spend a decade and by some estimates $2 million to wage this fight? Didn't we just put all our other major issues virtually on ice because some couples, a few lawyers, and a couple of out-of-touch lobby groups decided that same-sex marriage was the only thing that really mattered...
"Marriage is a heterosexual institution designed by the church, endorse by the state, with the intention of controlling the sexuality of women and by extension, their husbands...
"I don't expect the wedding rate will pick up. We have something better in our relationships, something that allows for a variety of friendships, fuck buddies, lovers, sisters and ex's. We don 't put all the pressures on one person...
"We don't need the limitations of marriage. So we're taking a pass. But what waste of time and money, and a tragic diversion of focus, in that decade-long fight.”
As Kirby suggests, being gay is about not marrying and being monogamous. It is farcical and tragic that heterosexual society should be sacrificed on the altar of gay marriage. Marriage-minded gays be given a separate status with equal benefits and responsibilities.
THE MEDIA LOVES GAY MARRIAGE
The Canadian media has ignored the tepid gay response to marriage and instead created the impression that traditional marriage is on the rocks. The fact the mass media sings from the same song sheet is further proof that it is directed by the central banking cartel.
In an article in The Hill Times (Sept. 24, 2007) Tom Korski writes:
[The media] “depicted gay Canadians enthusiastically embracing traditional roles at the exact moment the rest of society spirals into family dysfunction.”
'Thank heavens for gay marriage,' wrote Globe and Mail columnist Margaret Went. 'Without it, the most ancient of our social institutions would be in even worse decline than it already is.'
Other journalists advised readers “the nuclear family is fading away,” (Edmonton Sun) and that “same sex couples are taking the reins” (CTV.ca), or mocked the myth of the perfect family,” (Vancouver Sun) and lamented “there is no such thing as traditional family anymore.” (Moose Jaw Times Herald)
In one comically inelegant phrase CTV National's Lloyd Robertson told viewers, “If you're part of a so-called traditional family where the children are raised by a mother and father who are married, you seem to be in a declining breed.”
Meanwhile the gay lobby behind same-sex marriage is releasing statistics that exaggerate the number of gay marriages by about %65. This lobby, called “Egale,” is funded by IBM and a number of other anonymous corporations, as well as by the federal government.
Today, people who advance in the fields of government, education, media and big business generally belong to a colonial elite. They represent the London-based Masonic-Zionist central banking cartel which is colonizing us all in a 1984-style “world government.” They are waging psychological war on society to undermine our ability to resist.
The nuclear family is the basic building block of society. We derive identity, meaning, values and security from it. Heterosexual marriage is the basis for raising the new generation to be productive responsible citizens. It is based on the exchange of female power for male love which awakens the man's protective and constructive instincts. It is an essential step in our personal development and fulfillment.
The promotion of gay marriage has nothing to do with the welfare of homosexuals. As with feminism,it is designed to increase sex-role confusion, divorce, and depopulation. By conflating hetero and homosexual marriage, straights are being encouraged to emulate gays, who generally are not monogamous and do not have children. This is part of a wider attack on our gender identity (i.e. masculinity and femininity.)
Did we need to legalize gay marriage to accommodate one couple in one thousand? No. The central bankers legalized it to destroy the nuclear family and change societal norms. By arresting personal development, they ensure that humanity remains under their tutelage, a perpetual under-achiever.

A Reader Comments – December 13, 2007
Henry I'm a Gay man in a twenty three year monagamous, committed relationship (and a Truth Seeker reader). Your article on gay Marriage is a beauty. I found myself in pretty much full agreement with what you were saying. We have no interest in marriage, and never saw it as an issue. Still don't. We won't be having kids obviously so for us marriage would just be a validation of our relationship. We already have that every day we are together, we don't need to advertise it to the world. The Gay Marriage agenda has come from somewhere else, not from people like us. I find it all a trifle embarrassing really. I know too many queens who can't even conduct a grown-up relationship with their right hand let alone another person, and we are now seeing way too many hetero relationships breaking down around us as well. Too much enforced culture of selfishness and hedonism being pushed on all of us, and too much temptation for transient (ultimately meaningless) pleasures. And I'm sick to death of self appointed activists always telling us what it is we want.
