Marriage benefits everyone - so why does Labour hate it so much ?

Marriage makes loads of sense from the point of view of the wider community.

Married partners ( and perhaps civil partners also - though time will need to pass to prove this ) look after each other, to a point way beyond what normal friendships would normally provide. This saves the state a fortune.

Children do well out of marriage, and if children do well then all the cost of failure to wider society never materialise.

Instead of promoting, supporting and ecouraging marriage why do Labour hate it so much ? After all supporting marriage is a no brainer for society.

Let me suggest three reasons:

  1. Like a vampire Labour feasts off social breakdown and deprivation. Marriage is one of the key structures in society that stops the damage they need to create to justify a wider role for the state.
  2. It fits into their desperate campaign to portray the Conservatives as being for the few not the many. If ten of thousands of children have to have their life chances ruined and destroyed then its a small price to pay for a few more Labour votes.
  3. It fits with the aggressive secularist and humanist agenda of most of Labour's leading figures who hate Christianity, as its a rival religion to their statist socialism.
It also shows the true level of threat that Labour presents to our society - which is just as serious and dangerous as the spectacular damage they have done to our economy.

Simple reason really. None of them have given up their childhood left-wing extremism -

Communist Manifesto

1. The abolition of private property
2. The abolition of the family
3. The abolition of countries and nationalities
4. The abolition of all religion (especially Christianity)

There are very good reasons and Cetewayo beat me to it. This thing is so transparent and yet so difficult for people to accept. I've been banging on about this for years now.

Blinky was on the Politics Show trying to do a U-turn over Labour's marriage policy and benefits - what a load of his surname he was speaking.

Why does Labour hate it so much?

There is an implied relationship in marriage which does not fit the feminist agenda. Q.E.D.

I'm glad that everyone has seen right through Gordon Brown's attempt to portray himself as the champion of the middle classes.

It was such a spectacular lie that I don't even know where to start tearing it to pieces.

Brown's belief is that he is a superior being to the rest of us. Hence these mad announcements, which totally contradict all the evidence of the past twelve years. This idiot has impoverished the middle classes - and then thinks we will forgive him for this when he tells us that weally, he is our fwiend and that he loves us. No - Brown loathes EVERYONE bar himself. He is a sociopath, and clinically so. Should be banged up; that Labour knew how unsuited he is to high office while they were waving him into Number 10 is to their eternal shame.
