  SACRAMENTO, California, November 14, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – This past September, the state Senate of California voted 22-15 to approve legislation substituting the term "two persons" for "man and wife" in all state references to marriage. Indeed, the strict regulation of language is proving to be a major front for homosexual activists around the world as it has been for other ideologies that have sought to propagandise societies to accept radical social change agendas.

  Immediately following the passage of same-sex “marriage legislation in Spain, the government ordered that the terms “mother” and “father” were to be replaced in the State Civil Registries Family Book with the headings, Parent (progenitor) A, and Parent (progenitor) B.

  This February nurses in Scotland were told by Scotland’s National Health Service, in conjunction with Britain’s leading homosexual activist organization, Stonewall, that they must avoid using the terms “mother” and “father”. These must be replaced with “carers” or “guardians.” The terms “husband”, “wife” and “marriage” must be replaced with “partners” and “close friend.”

  In Canada when the government started instituting homosexual “marriage” the province of Ontario banned “mother” and “father” as well as the terms “wife”, “husband”, “widow” and “widower” from all Ontario statutes.
 
  The Australian state of Victoria is pushing to have “mother” and “father” removed from school curricula as recommended in the manual, “Learn to Include” developed by homosexual political activists. Similar changes were put in place in Massachusetts when the law was changed to allow “gay marriage.”
