One of the (many) arguments I have deployed against 'Gay Marriage' has been the philosophical problem inherent in re-defining marriage to include same sex couples. Because if one does that, why stop there? If marriage is no longer about procreation as a key element, why not allow polygamy, paedophilia and so on.
People regularly dismiss this argument, as they are illegal. But so was homosexual behaviour until recently.
Moreover, there are serious attempts being made to 'normalise' paedophilia. The first step, as with homosexuality, is to get it removed from the category of 'disorder' so that it becomes simply a 'minority' issue. Then it can claim the victim status, tolerance and so on that minorities demand - just as the gay lobby has done.
That is already underway, as the programme of this conference reveals.
