The tenor of remarks I’ve read in various columns have varied but a thread running through constantly is:
1. Most people don’t mind individual gays as people, with women more accepting on the whole than men, as it threatens men;
2. Most people I know have no personal feelings one way or the other towards this gay or that;
3. Cameron’s bloodymindedness though has first concerned, then annoyed and finally polarized and hardened the people of this nation into two distinct camps.
The camp dead against gay “marriage” may include those against gays themselves but the vast majority are people fed to the back teeth with this being forced on people.
Same with the Church. Most don’t have much truck with the Church but the sight of Cameron and Featherstone bludgeoning what they want over the wishes of others has got many people’s backs up.
The camp for gay marriage includes people poisoned by the narrative in which any perversion is Ok in the name of equality, even paedophilia. It also includes people who see it as libertarian to force views on others who don’t want them and reject them outright.
One comment at the Telegraph referred to Jung [not someone I particularly revere but still]:
Alcoholic drinking, drug addiction, anorexia and bulimia, gross obesity, addictive gambling and homosexuality were all symptoms of the same emotional illness; deep-rooted personality problems.
I went on to ask why some of these sufferers were treated as “sickos” whilst others are granted “equality”.
I’m not going to be drawn into that. I’m not going to be tied to a view on gays themselves. I know what Christianity says on it, it’s not my concern, it’s my Maker’s to sort out. What I am concerned about is:
1. The political thrust to wipe Christianity off the face of the earth, to turn people dead against it when it is merely a set of sound precepts for living which can hardly be argued against;
2. The campaign by Cameron to destroy the Conservative Party. He knew fullwell that this would happen and yet his masters insist he goes ahead and does it.
He’s seen the mood of the nation and make no mistake – the Telegraph, Guardian and Mail are the three main papers from which they get public reaction on a daily basis. He’s seen huge opposition to this and yet he bloodymindedly insists on continuing with it, even to the point of splitting the party.
That makes Cameron and utter traitor to the party, something I wrote in 2007 when he became leader, at great cost to myself, by the way – I lost a lot of blogfriends at that time over my failure to support him and the reason I didn’t was because of what I knew was going to happen and has.
Now we’re reaping the whirlwind.
