Dismantling traditional marriage: a regressive step for society

By Andrea Minichiello Williams

 

Continuous attack over five decades has left marriage as little more than a bombed-out shell, says the Chief Executive of Christian Concern, Andrea Williams, on the eve of the first legalised same-sex ‘weddings’ taking place in the UK.

 

“The label remains but the substance has gone . God’s blueprint for marriage and family has been ripped up by our society and every day we see and feel all around us, the huge emotional, economic and spiritual pain that results,” says Andrea.

 

She says the first same-sex ‘weddings’ which will take place from midnight onwards are just another step along a familiar path.

 

“Five decades of campaigning by the enemies of the nuclear family has obliterated marriage. The dismantling and destruction of marriage between one man and one woman for life, has produced a State marriage which is a mirage – an illusory reflection of the real thing.”

 

Andrea, who is a member of the General Synod of the Church of England, says the expectation of costly commitment and the recognition of the unique contribution of male and female to the upbringing of children have all gone.

 

“This is yet another regressive step and we see the pain of family and relational breakdown all around us.”
