Ridiculous Same Sex Marriage Predictions That Just Didn’t Happen

When the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act first came into force last year for England and Wales, some people weren’t happy. They started predicting that this act would have a knock on effect and that the world would end… all because we let people marry the same gender as them.

We can all accept that their predictions for the future are completely ridiculous, and here on Escort Wales we take a look at how wrong these predictions were.

Incest Hasn’t Been Legalised

Yes, believe it or not someone suggested that, by allowing same sex marriage, we’d be allowing people to marry their family members… because, you know, same sex marriage and incest are totally the same thing, right? Nope. Not even a little bit. Yet Lord Norman Tebbit, the former Conservative Party chairman, and some of his colleagues seemed to think that was the way things were going.

“It’s like one of my colleagues said: we’ve got to make these same-sex marriages available to all.” Sounds good so far, but then he sticks his foot firmly in his mouth. “It would lift my worries about inheritance tax because maybe I’d be allowed to marry my son. Why not?”

Well, we can think of a lot of good reasons why not. Nevertheless, Lord Tebbit went on to say “Why shouldn’t a mother marry her daughter? Why shouldn’t two elderly sisters living together marry each other? I quite fancy my brother!” Sorry, Lord Tebbit. Even if you do fancy the pants off him, you can’t marry your brother.

What’s more worrying is that Lord Tebbit isn’t the only one to believe legalising same sex marriage would cause incest. In Taiwan numerous religious organisations fought back against it, believing that allowing equal marriage would lead to “severe consequences”, such as adultery and incest.

A year on and look at all of the incest- wait, incest isn’t legal. There are no incest marriages in the UK. Well what do you know!

Zoophilia, Necrophilia, and Paedophilia Are Also Not Legal

Unfortunately, we started off with the easier stuff. It only gets worse from here, and it seems that some people not only believe that same sex marriage will lead to incest (which we can clearly see hasn’t even nearly happened) but it will also lead to zoophilia, necrophilia, and paedophilia.

A Fox News host suggested that there might be a link between bestiality and equal marriage, and a former Oxford City Council candidate was forced to resign after saying that “some gay people prefer sex with animals”.

This same former council candidate was forced to resign when she then talked about the apparent link between paedophilia and gay sex. “As for the links between homosexuality and paedophilia, there is so much evidence that even a full-length book could hardly do justice to the subject.” Oh really? Well, I can’t seem to find one credible study showing a link. I smell bullshit.

Incest, animals, children, it seems that absolutely nothing in sacred for those talking of the corruption that lesbian sex will cause… including the dead. A Polish MP once linked homosexuality to necrophilia, and the Lithuanian politician Petra Gražulis wanted to know “how are homosexuals better than necrophiliacs?” Well, for one Mr. Gražulis, gay people can consent to sex. Dead people can’t, and no, whipping out the Ouija board or shouting “knock once for yes and twice for no” does not count.

Again, look what has happened since we allowed equal marriage. Has there been a jump in the number of gay people having sex with anyone other than consenting adults? Not that we can see. Yet another predication that just hasn’t happened! What a surprise!

God has not smitten us

We were told that, if we as a nation accepted gay and lesbian marriage as acceptable, God would smite us. He would bring down his wrath upon us and leave his screaming to the heavens “why did we allow this?”

David Silvester, a former UKIP member, wrote an open letter to David Cameron back in April 2012. In his letter he said that “the scriptures make it abundantly clear that a Christian nation that abandons its faith and acts contrary to the Gospel… will be beset by natural disasters such as storms, disease, pestilence and war.”

Honestly, the UK weather is weird enough as it is, but as far as we can tell the weather has been just as it always has been and not one bit worse. Yet another thing that hasn’t been caused by same sex!

However, not only will God (not) smite us, but it seems that gay sex will make the devil come out of your ass. Yes, this is really what a former gay porn star said in one of his “ex-gay” videos. In the video he says “I do believe that it creates a doorway, literally, into the demonic and into the supernatural.” He goes on to add that “anal sex releases into the world rare demonic entities and that even in the body could be conceived as the devil and that would be given birth to anally.”

I can’t remember any newspapers reporting on the devil coming out of someone’s ass in the last year. In fact, I can’t think of any story like that ever… and that kind of thing would definitely make the news!

What has same sex marriage really done?

There’s all this doom and gloom about gay marriage and just what it will have done to the world. Incest, bestiality, child abuse, the wrath of God… all of these predictions were made that allowing equal marriage in this country would lead to terrible things.

What has same sex marriage actually done? Have been really given birth to the devil by taking it up the arse?

Well, the statistics reveal that in the first three months of the law, over 1,400 same-sex couples got married. No Satan, no incest, no necrophilia. All that same sex marriage has done is allowed people to get married.

Mind-blowing, right? Same sex marriage has allowed consenting adults to marry, regardless of the gender they are.

What do you think about these ridiculous predictions? Is there a way to stop people’s prejudice from making such outlandish statements, or is it something we simply have to put up with?
