"Your essay can have any title, so you can be as inventive as you wish, but you will need to show to the best of your ability how marriage and the family, based on the union of one man and one woman for life, were the plan of God from the beginning of time and backed up by Jesus Christ Himself.
Your best source for material will be what is written in Holy Scripture, in other words, in the Bible. But material from other sources which supports the Bible view is OK. For example, there is now a load of evidence of the benefits of the marriage-based man-woman family for parents, children and society from social science. If you wish, you can illustrate your entry."
So basically "write as many words as you want (there's apparently no limit) on why being gay is evil". This essay competition (which, in a move that shows that Green knows the lingo and is wholeheartedly down with the kids, is entitled "Kent Comp 4 Kids") is, of course, a response to the competition run by Kent police to promote tolerance and discourage homophobia, which you may remember so enraged Green a few weeks ago. As with everything Green touches, this is at once both slightly scary and extremely laughable. The idea of children falling victim to his obsessive homophobia is definitely worrying, but at least we can take comfort from the fact that it will probably receive about 12 entries, all from children of Green's meagre band of supporters (feel sorry for them, but at least we're not talking hundreds).
Bizarrely the essay competition includes a category for 18-25 year olds (which even makes me eligible), and for the youngsters Green seems to have covered his tracks in some way by stipulating that "Under 18's need their parents' permission to enter". Perhaps the most creepy element of all is that anyone who enters will receive a lovely "Certificate of Effort" to put on their bedroom wall as a lasting symbol of the rabid homophobia their parents have indoctrinated them with.
I'd love to see one of those certificates. Since I'm young enough to enter, do you think if I wrote an essay based loosely on the theme but telling Green the opposite of what he wants to hear, I'd get a certificate for my "effort"?
