 ‘Mother’ and ‘father’ to be scrapped from Scottish law

The words “mother” and “father” will be dropped from Scottish matrimonial law under First Minister Alex Salmond’s plans to redefine marriage.
Official consultation documents which accompany the Scottish Government’s draft Bill spell out the changes to terminology.

Where current matrimonial law refers to “mother” and “father”, the Scottish Government plans for legislation to use the gender–neutral term “parent”.

That's funny(in a very sad way though). It's as if The Lord allows us to smear mud all over ourselves when we depart from His laws and boundaries as an open display for our shame.

God uses Satan in His plan to achieve His sovereign purposes and to fulfill His plan. But it takes us one step further, teaching that God not only employs Satan to bring about the blessing of His saints, but that God also uses Satan to bring about divine discipline.

The time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God (1 Peter 4:17).

God is calling the church to repentance.

I am wondering how they will write up a birth certificate. Will they soon scrap a place to put in ones gender?

Compton said it is dumb. I agree.
