September 25, 2006 ( – In a National Review Online article this past February, U.S. author/researcher Stanley Kurtz charged that Canadians still don’t get it that the legal change to the definition of marriage to include same-sex couples is part of an overall strategy to completely abolish marriage in Canada.

The Tories promised motion to re-visit the same-sex marriage issue in Parliament is about to be introduced this October or November and yet many religious and other groups and pro-marriage Canadians are perceived by pro-family leaders as again making only weak, half-hearted efforts to support the motion. The Stanley Kurtz article may help Canadians become more aware about the severe consequences of losing the vote on that motion and the vote on any following bill to re-instate the traditional definition of marriage.

Kurtz starts his article by noting the mid-January 2006 Justice Department study that called for the decriminalization and regulation of polygamy.

With that in mind he follows: “And even that is only part of the story. Canadians, let me be brutally frank. You are being played for a bunch of fools by your legal-political elite. Your elites mumble a confusing jargon to your face to keep you from understanding what they really have in mind.”

Kurtz continues with some very brief but explosive quotes from a 2001 Law Commission study, “Beyond Conjugality,” that questioned whether there should even be any continued legal privileges and obligations for marriage after gay ‘marriage’ is legalized.

Even though the 2001 report was made public he says “nobody got it. Everyone noticed that a government commission had backed same-sex marriage. But few recognized, grasped, or could bring themselves to take seriously, the central thrust of Beyond Conjugality: that after the legalization of same-sex marriage, Canadian marriage itself ought to be abolished.”

The plan is so obvious says Kurtz. “It’s like this. The way to abolish marriage, without seeming to abolish it, is to redefine the institution out of existence. If everything can be marriage, pretty soon nothing will be marriage.”

The most worrisome part of all this, according to Krutz, is that despite the obvious evidence, “The Canadian public cannot bring itself to believe that the abolition of marriage is the real agenda of the country’s liberal legal-political elite.”

Polygamous Muslims and Mormons fit right into the strategy, says Kurtz, only to politically justify further changes which would have as their ultimate real goal the elimination of all marriage.
