South Africa and China O.K.'s Gay Marriage

Submitted by St. Louis Ministry of Information-KNN

PEEVISHNESS: Welcome new member’s South Africa and China

Let’s take a moment a define peevishness. Webster’s dictionary says, obstinately perverse; turning away from what is right or good; corrupt. In a very brief time South Africa and China have truly epitomized liberal democracy’s ethical standards…GROSS MORAL DECADENCE. The one time strong morals of South Africa and China have finally been broken down and voted away from the minds of the people. I truly believe these countries had no idea that liberal democracy’s ‘freedom’, would neutralize the order of man, woman, and family as they knew it for millennia.

"When we attained our democracy, we sought to distinguish ourselves from an unjust painful past, by declaring that never again shall it be that any South African will be discriminated against on the basis of color, creed culture and sex”, the Home Affairs Minister of South Africa. When apartheid ended, was this the vision of freedom? Not to allow homosexuality as a choice lifestyle is now seen as discrimination! This is gross moral decadence.

"They are a group of students who would like to study and learn more about gay and lesbian issues", director of Children with AIDS foundation in China.Those that died at Tiananmen Square did not think that the Chinese people would destroy the morality chasing ‘freedom’ to do and allowing anything. This is gross moral decadence.

The anointed messianic authority writes, “I’ve magnified liberal democratic social system revealing what was heretofore concealed and not mentioned. My (Truth’s) objective is to end liberal democracy’s unrelenting imposition of an undetected form of materialistic (hedonistic) slavery and the destruction of man, flora and fauna. Ben Ammi, is simply stating that good and evil coexist together in a social system known as democracy, which has in it a not easily noticeable element… that is GROSS MORAL DECADENCE. Unfortunately, this is just the beginning homosexuality, violence, and suffering will only increase in this form of government.

South Africa Parliament O.K.’s Gay Marriage
The South African parliament on Tuesday approved new legislation recognizing gay marriages — a first for a continent where homosexuality is largely taboo.

The National Assembly passed the Civil Union Bill, worked out after months of heated public discussion, by a majority of 230 to 41 votes despite criticism from both traditionalists and gay activists and warnings that it might be unconstitutional. There were three abstentions. The bill provides for the "voluntary union of two persons, which is solemnized and registered by either a marriage or civil union." It does not specify whether they are heterosexual or homosexual partnerships.

But it also says marriage officers need not perform a ceremony between same-sex couples if doing so would conflict with his or her "conscience, religion and belief. When we attained our democracy, we sought to distinguish ourselves from an unjust painful past, by declaring that never again shall it be that any South African will be discriminated against on the basis of color, creed culture and sex," Home Affairs Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula told the National Assembly.

The bill had been expected to pass given the overwhelming majority of the ruling African National Congress, despite unease among rank and file lawmakers. It now has to go to the National Council of Provinces, which is expected to be a formality, before being signed into law by President Thabo Mbeki.

China gay group 'gets approval' -BBC News

A homosexual group has been officially registered at a mainland Chinese university campus for the first time, a Hong Kong-based activist has said. The Sun Yat Sen University in Zhuhai, southern China, has allowed a gay and lesbian group of students to be formally registered.
It is the first university in China to acknowledge the public existence of homosexual interests on campus. Homosexuality is officially frowned upon in China.

According to a BBC correspondent in Hong Kong, it is highly unusual for official recognition to be granted to such a group. Many informal groups of gay and lesbian Chinese exist but avoid official censure by using the internet. Growing diversity - Hong Kong activist Chung To, who has visited the new group at Zhuhai, says its application focused not on the sexuality of members but on their wish to study gender issues.

"They are a group of students who would like to study and learn more about gay and lesbian issues," said Mr To, who is director of foundation that runs projects for children affected by Aids in China. "I think the significance of the group mainly is that it is the first time the university officially approves the existence of such a group. "In the past there have been informal gay and lesbian centered groups at universities. But this is the first time that a university was actually officially was given approval of such a group," he said.

Drink to Your Health . . . With Water!

MelindaBA - KNN Staff

Some nutritionists insist that 80% of the country is walking around dehydrated. We drink too much coffee, tea, and sodas containing caffeine, which prompts the body to lose water. More troubling is that fact that when we are dehydrated, we don't know what to drink. The answer is simple: drink water! Water is pure liquid refreshment and accounts for a large percentage of what makes each of us "human." The average 150 lb. adult body contains 40 to 50 quarts of water. Almost 2/3rds of our body weight is "water weight": Click here: Health Benefits of Drinking Water
