The ‘biblical sexual standards’ of the Daily Fail

14 Feb

It’s Valentine’s Day 2011 CE, but if you read the Daily Fail today you’d think it was 2011 BCE – 4000 years ago. It seems our secular laws based on equality before the law are a real threat to the true moral authority as written down in over 60 books by over 40 shady authors over hundreds of years starting way back in the Bronze Age in a book called “the Bible”.

According to Melanie Phillips (who else?) gay marriage means that:

Truly, we are fast reaching the stage where upholding Biblical sexual standards will become the morality that dare not speak its name.

What did these biblical authors know that we don’t? And what would we be defending if we did speak its morality. Well let’s take a look at their great moral insight:


That’s right. When two angels visit you and a mob forms outside wanting to rape those angels, the only moral thing to do is offer your two virgin child daughters to the mob to be gang raped. God of war Yahweh rewards such morality as righteous. Those daughters could be forgiven for being so sexually confused that they later get their father drunk and have incest with him. Is that why god of war Yahweh continues to see Lot and his daughters as moral and righteous?

When invading other countries, murder all the men and take the women to be gang-raped as the owned property of the genocidal victors. Sieg heil, anyone?

Biblical morality doesn’t just stop at sex; it has a lot to offer modern secular society, so much in fact it really is difficult to see how any non-believer, any so-called ‘atheist’, could be moral at all:


Wow! This is good moral stuff. How did the human race ever drag itself out of the cave without the supernatural god of war Yahweh, eh? Here’s Yahweh again showing he’s down with civilisation and morality:

Melanie Phillips claims most gay people don’t want equality:

for many gay people do not approve of this ideological gay rights agenda

I’d really love to know who these ‘many gay people’ are, but in case those ‘many gay people’ missed the memo here again is the effect of gay marriage on society:

The effects of gay marriage on society

This is a far cry from the Melanie Phillips thesis that:

Those who make this argument merely reveal they have no idea of the significance of marriage. They seem to think it’s just another contractual arrangement involving a binding (or not so binding) commitment — like buying a house or a car.

But the truth is that marriage is a unique institution because it involves the process by which humanity reproduces itself — which is only through the union of male and female.

The fact that some married couples are childless is irrelevant. The sole reason marriage has universal value is that it is vital for the healthy nurture of the next generation. This is because children need to be brought up by the two people who created them.

Activists argue that gay people should be able to get married because everyone is entitled to the same status. But why should this be the case if their sexual circumstances are different?

How should we break the news to poor Melanie? Gay people can and do have children. Moreover, probably one evolutionary reason behind homosexuality throughout the animal kingdom is that it acts as a form of population control and a way where the mess left by heterosexual promiscuity can be picked up by gays adopting orphaned and abandoned children. What could be more moral than the taking on of other people’s unwanted offspring? If marriage is the standard bearer for the role models of mother and father, shouldn’t all those who can adopt or procreate, gay or straight, be allowed to marry?

Melanie Phillips seems to be defeated by her own misunderstanding of her own point. No surprise there then.

Meanwhile, also in the UK on this Valentine’s Day, one of the most romantic gay scenes of a prime-time TV show aired courtesy of Glee on Fox. How far we have indeed come.
