Should the worst happen...

I have been away in the US, but I did see that Downing Street said it remains determined to press ahead with same-sex marriage.

Should the worst happen and marriage is redefined it will have been an astonishing victory for the gay lobby — a whole reversal of a nation’s moral outlook in less than half a century is historically quite unprecedented (except perhaps in Nazi Germany). Of course this has been made possible because public opinion is malleable under the vast influence of the secular media dominated by the liberal agenda. Such is its influence that, testifying at the Leverson Inquiry, ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair spoke of making a decision to manage the media rather than confront it, presumably because he knew he could not win. (This power of the media actually calls into question the whole workings of democracy.)
