Bermuda Becomes First Country In The World To Repeal Same-Sex Marriage

Tim Gill, gay activist and donor, in an interview declared that his organization is going “to punish the wicked.”  Who are these wicked people?  Mentioned in the are the “religious right” but it is anyone or any grout that is against gay “marriage”.

It is an attempt by progressives to destroy Christianity and the nuclear family.  The Supreme Court should have left gay “marriage” a state issue.

There is a collision building between religious liberty and the sexual revolution.  A collision of two American values: religious freedom and freedom from discrimination.

Bermuda swaps marriage for domestic partnerships.

“The act is intended to strike a fair balance between two currently irreconcilable groups in Bermuda, by restating that marriage must be between a male and a female while at the same time recognizing and protecting the rights of same-sex couples”

Bermuda has become the first jurisdiction to legalise and then repeal same-sex marriage, in what critics have called an unprecedented rollback of civil rights by the British territory.

Bermuda’s governor has signed into law a bill reversing the right of gay couples to marry, despite a supreme court ruling last year authorising same-sex marriage.

Walton Brown, Bermuda’s minister of home affairs, said the legislation signed by Governor John Rankin would balance opposition to same-sex marriage on the socially conservative island while complying with European court rulings that ensure recognition and protection for same-sex couples in the territory.

Bermuda’s Senate and House of Assembly passed the legislation by wide margins in December and a majority of voters opposed same-sex marriage in a referendum.

“The act is intended to strike a fair balance between two currently irreconcilable groups in Bermuda, by restating that marriage must be between a male and a female while at the same time recognising and protecting the rights of same-sex couples,” said Brown, whose ruling Progressive Labour party proposed the repeal…

But same-sex couples will now have the option only of a registered domestic partnership. Brown said those couples would had “equivalent” rights to married heterosexual couples, including the right to make medical decisions on behalf of one’s partner. TheGuardian
