Marriage the way it is now is best way to raise family
Whether or not the plans to redefine marriage are being fast-tracked by the Government, as reported recently, it does provide an opportunity to remind people what this proposed legislation is about, and what it could mean.
The current law requires schools to teach children about the importance of marriage. If marriage is given a new definition, that too will be endorsed in schools.
Legal experts say that any teacher who fails to endorse same-sex marriage in the classroom could be dismissed. Also, parents will have no legal right to withdraw their children from lessons which endorse same-sex marriage.
Already supporters of same-sex marriage are recommending books for use in schools, and call on schools to get children to act out same-sex "weddings".

The effect on schools will be polarising and divisive.
Those who support this radical agenda think those who disagree are bigots.
They don't say that seven in 10 people want to keep marriage as it is, or that marriage, the way it currently is, doesn't take away any rights from other types of couples in Britain. The Human Rights Act and the Equality Act ensure there is no discrimination.
The Government's own figures suggest that only three per cent of people who could, would enter a same-sex marriage.
I hope people will make their voices heard by contacting MPs, to urge them to vote to keep marriage the way it is – the best and most stable way for children to be raised.
