Scotland Rejects Petition to Change Adultery Definition to Apply to Same-Sex ‘Marriage’

Broken Heart pd(Christian Concern) A petition urging Scottish ministers to change the definition of adultery following the introduction of same-sex ‘marriage’ has been rejected by MSPs, because there is insufficient time to consider it in this parliamentary term.

Campaigner Akri Jones called for the change at the Scottish Parliament’s Public Petitions Committee, claiming that the definition of adultery should be revised to accommodate the introduction of same-sex ‘marriages’. She called for the legal definition of adultery to be amended so that it is “not restrictive to gender status”, claiming that the current law is in breach of human rights and equality legislation.

As the law stands, committing adultery can be cited as proof that a marriage has irretrievably broken down. However, the legal definition of adultery refers specifically to sexual expression between a man and a woman outside of marriage.

    Changing the definition of marriage requires changing the definition of some other terms as well. But nothing has changed, according to the homosexuals and their pimps.

      Gay people have pimps? I’m not sure what you’re referring to. But, yes, I think when nations remove the same-sex restriction there’s a lot of gender specific language buried in any nation’s laws that govern the marriage contract that needs to be changed. I’m not sure why that would be controversial.

    Unless you are a Fundamentalist with extreme hatred for gay human beings, you are not allowed to comment on this website. My husband John loves Jesus but understands that homosexuality is NOT a sin because a person does not choose their sexuality. He spoke to Michael from Christian News Network and was told Christians, including members of the United Church of Christ, Presbyterian, Episcopal, and other Christians that have an opposing view to their hatred will always be blocked from this site and will all be going to hell. THEY ARE AFRAID OF THE TRUTH AND THEREFORE THINK IT IS BEST TO SILENCE THE TRUTH. A major SHAME on them! John was respectful to others in his comments and was removed, yet a hateful man like Gary is allowed to continue making ugly and disrespectful comments in the false name of Christianity. This is an incredibly shameful act where goats are disguised as sheep.

    Well at least Scotland’s leadership has some sense. Rather than to take something that came from Judaism and try to make it something it’s not. Judean/Christian beliefs are in the cross hairs with quite a few haters these days.
