The Swedish government has succumbed to radical homosexual pressure and legalised same sex marriage

In 1987 the law defined marriage as between a man and a woman. On Wednesday the Swedish parliament legalised same sex marriage, making it the fifth EU member country, after the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain and Norway, to recognize same sex marriage.

Steven Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute said the traditional family has come to "the end of the road" in Sweden, where over 60% of children are born to out of wedlock parents, and crime rates have risen, which Mosher attributes to the lack of the stability in children's lives that is afforded by the traditional family.

"When you allow homosexuals to 'marry,' you are saying that the aspect of raising children, the aspect of procreation is completely irrelevant," warned Mosher. "You are finally divorcing what you call marriage from any relationship of bearing and having children, and that empties out the concept entirely, making it devoid of any significance. So it's the end of the road for the family."

What I would like to ask the Swedish government is how does same sex marriage benefit their society?

This is an excellent post. I highly agree. The family as an institution is in trouble. 60% of children are born to out-of-wedlock parents. Crime rates have risen. Children do not have the examples of traditional marriage to base their futures on. Clearly, marriage is in trouble. So what's the answer? Should we strengthen marriage? Should we make divorce harder to get? Should we give incentives for people to get married? Should we try to get back to values that promote marriage and the traditional family? No, of course not. Let's just redefine marriage! That's going to help, right? Right?

You know SH, I really appreciate the posts you find that show a worldwide perspective on preserving families, children, marriage, and so on. I get so caught up from a US perspective that I need your finds to help balance out what the rest of the world is doing.

Thanks Euripides, the internet has no state boundaries. If its in English, then it can be talked about. I've noticed that when one country or state makes an immoral decision others want to copy it.
