Stop the Re-Definition of Marriage
Tuesday, 14 May 2013
The Same Sex Marriage bill had
its second reading at the Houses of Parliament where 70+ MPs were witnessed to
be voting in favour of the Same Sex Marriage Bill.
Serious concerns have been
raised by not only the Muslim community but across all faiths about the
ramification of changing the definition of marriage. With the Third
reading approaching soon, we would like to request all concerned individuals to
write to their MP, asking them to vote against the bill on the 21st
of May 2013. There is still an opportunity to lobby our members of parliament
and save the sanctity of marriage.
We need to highlight to the government that there is no need to change the
definition of marriage, which should stay as it is and always has been –
between a man and a woman.
Despite the government’s
reassurances, if the bill is passed, it still may open doors for future laws to
be put in place that will force imams to marry same sex couples.
If you believe in marriage as
it should be, between a man and a woman, write to your MP – (you can find and
contact them directly here: http://www.writetothem.com/) and ask him/her to vote against the
Same Sex Marriage Bill on 21 May 2013. Please ask your friends, colleagues and
family members to do the same.
Let us work together to stop the redefinition of marriage.
