A Secular Case For Defending Marriage and Children
Allowing the law to normalize, promote, and protect against criticism, homosexual behavior and all the consequences of such a lifestyle, will damage our nation’s children and lead to a massive increase in child abuse (emotional, mental and physical), drug abuse and youth suicide. Adults have a duty of care to protect children, not harm them.
There is enough for children to worry about as they grow up, they should not need to have to deal with such things as a man "marrying" another man and pretending that doing such sexual acts to each other is good and normal.
Australia’s children are having divisive arguments about homosexual “marriage” in school playgrounds. They should not need to even have to think about a man putting his penis in another man’s anus (designed to excrete human waste), let alone have to take sides as if sodomy is some sort of human rights or civil rights issue, instead of an act which has among other things caused the worldwide spread of the AIDS virus and left millions of children orphans.
Please do not pander to a minority of selfish adults seeking to normalize their own unnatural lifestyle. Please be a responsible adult and leave marriage alone, if only for children's sake.
This is not an issue of civil rights. The issue of redefining marriage to pretend that a man can “marry” another man and then do the sexual things they do to each other as “husband” and “wife” is a long way from being a civil rights or human rights issue.
It is in fact nothing of the sort. It is an issue Australians are being bullied into accepting by a vocal minority of intimidators who have managed to silence the media and politicians on this issue. In fact I suggest that any attempt to normalize this sexual activity is in reality a child protection issue.
Please think of the message being taught to the children of Australia by our leaders pretending such an issue is akin to freeing slaves or fighting apartheid. Children will be intimidated into thinking sodomy is okay because it is being elevated to such heights and fought for as if it was the most noble cause in the world.
Enough is Enough
Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.
There is “a time to be silent, and a time to speak”. (Ecclesiastes 3:7). Now is the time to speak, so please speak up and defend children, truth and freedom. Craig Manners
“What the world needs most is a voice that courageously speaks the truth, not when the world is right, but a voice that speaks the truth when the world is wrong.” Fulton Sheen
True marriage offers true equality for children. Every child comes from and needs BOTH a Mum and a Dad. Every human being has dignity and deserves respect. All sorts of relationships can be respected at law without having to change marriage laws. In fact that has been the case legally for many years. The simple fact remains though that not every relationship is marriage.
