Same-sex marriage is like marrying Satan, says The Spectator magazine

The Australian version of The Spectator magazine has sparked outrage by comparing same-sex marriage to marrying the devil.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Australia had voted overwhelmingly in favour of legalising same-sex marriage, by a margin of 62% to 38%.

The reactions were full of joy, relief and love, as a nation celebrated a positive decision after months of homophobia and divisive campaigning.


But not everyone has taken the news well.

In a move which you could say makes them sore losers, The Spectator’s next cover will feature Adam, arm wrapped around Satan, telling Eve: “We’ve got something to tell you”.

Just to drive the point home – that homosexual unions are akin to marrying the literal embodiment of sin – Satan is offering a wedding ring to Adam as the snake watches.

Half-eaten apples – from the Tree of Knowledge, naturally – are also strewn on the floor, to emphasise how much the cover wants you to see gay sex as unholy.

In an article with the headline “Yessssssss” (get it? Like a snake), the publication defended its decision to create such a hateful cover page.
