"Origins and machinery of the European human rights system
The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) is an international treaty drawn up within the Council of Europe, which was established in Strasbourg in 1949 in the course of the first post-war attempt to unify Europe. The United Kingdom was among the first states to ratify the ECHR and played a pivotal role in its creation. The UK accepted the right of individuals to take a case to Strasbourg and the jurisdiction of the ECtHR in 1966. In 1998, the right of individual petition and the jurisdiction of the Court were made compulsory for all states which are members of the ECHR."

The socialists/Labour party and the Liberals/Lib.Dems are already convinced by Liberalism to accept the abomination. The Conservative party is partially convinced but has some individuals who remain as yet unconvinced.
Cameron has begun the campaign to nationalise the acceptance of so called same-sex marriage which is a strategy of negating the Scripture by validating the opposite, in this case homosexual practice.
Apathy in large areas of the UK population will allow this abomination to become an acceptable reality as far as the people are concerned. In this debate 'moral standards' are relegated to a traditional past and history where people were not as 'educated' as society is today.
This is part of the spiritual battle in which the Christian is in the minority, is not heeded and thus the Bible is easily rejected by others. One of the insidious organisations in all of this struggle is the national church, CofE/CofS, who are clearly on the side of Satan.
