What Does God Have to Say About Same-sex "Marriage"?
Sinful man will always manipulate God into man's own image and pretend that sin is somehow okay for certain generations or situations. But is it? Let's find out what God says:
Sodom and Gomorrah Destroyed
“The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. “My lords,” he said, “please turn aside to your servant’s house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning.”
“No,” they answered, “we will spend the night in the square.”
But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”

While the ANZ Bank in Australia has been busy since the gay mardi gras in Sydney in March, using shareholder's and depositor's funds to promote the normalization of gay sex in their bank advertising campaigns, it seems the bank has forgotten how to do the banking side of things:
This message was on the ANZ's share investing website on 26th April 2017 and on a recorded phone message, as the bank failed to make cash withdrawal transfers. The remarkable failure by a top four Australian bank has led to customers being unable to meet their financial obligations, run out of petrol, run out of food, damage their credit standing etc. etc. Meanwhile ANZ gladly add overdrawn fees to the accounts which were the supposed recipients of the funds their clients have been trying to transfer for days.
ANZ Bank announcement:
"Important Notice: Delayed Settlements
Please be advised that due to technical issues, we are experiencing delays in trade settlements and the payment of cash withdrawals. As a result, the proceeds you will receive from the sale of your securities may be delayed. In addition, if you have purchased securities, there may also be a delay in the funds being taken from your cash account. This may impact your ability to place orders or withdraw funds. We are investigating the issues and hope to have the problems resolved as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause."

Don't Cave In To Same-Sex 'Marriage' Bullies.
Stop LGBTI Bullying Ordinary Australians
Recent events have highlighted the nasty and coercive nature of one side in the debate over redefining marriage. Homosexual activists intimidated and threatened Coopers Brewery with boycotts and demanded they make large donations to LGBT groups in the wake of Coopers beer being featured in a debate between same-sex 'marriage' advocate Tim Wilson and his Liberal Party colleague Andrew Hastie, who supports traditional marriage.
Similarly, homosexual activists targeted Mark Allaby, one of the managing partners of IBM Australia. He was also a board member of the Lachlan Macquarie Institute (LMI), which runs an intern program for young Christians. Several activists took issue with his position on the board and targeted IBM, questioning why they had employed someone who sat on the board of LMI because it was “an anti-LGBTI organisation” which they said contradicted IBM’s public support for same-sex marriage.

QANTAS and other corporations in Australia are coercing staff to wear a specially designed ring which will mark and reveal all those who refuse as opponents to the gay totalitarian rule suffocating Australian society.
SOUND FAMILIAR? It is a reverse method of what the Nazi totalitarians did in 1930s Germany to mark and reveal the Jews, by forcing them to wear a Star of David patch on their clothes.
Imagine if it were Christian bosses coercing staff to wear a crucifix until everyone trusted in Jesus! Or a Muslim boss coercing staff to speak Arabic only because it is the superior language of Muhamed.
It is more than just offensive to those employees at QANTAS et al who do not support the homosexual MardiGras-ification of our society. It is a dangerous project designed to isolate, intimidate, black-list and target all opponents of this tyrannical homosexual movement.
WAKE UP AUSTRALIA! It may soon be too late!
"Totalitarians and fascists have always sought to demonise their opponents, in part by marking them out from the “normal” majority. They are clearly identified one way or another as recalcitrants, and treated accordingly. Simply consider how Jews fared as the Nazi regime occupied various European countries: being forced to wear a yellow badge in the form of a Star of David."1
"Millions of our young men gave their lives to fight these totalist regimes and to preserve our cherished freedoms. But a new totalitarianism is descending upon the West, and it comes in the form of the militant and totalitarian rainbow activists." 1
"Some of the country’s biggest businesses have upped the ante in the crusade for marriage equality by asking Australians to wear a specially designed “acceptance ring” until same-sex marriage is legalized."
Including Airbnb, Qantas, ANZ, Fairfax Media and Foxtel,
Airbnb Australia country manager Sam McDonagh said the campaign would involve the distribution of “hundreds of thousands” of the distinctive black metal rings to its hosts and guests, business partners and “key influencers”.
Qantas staff and cabin crew would wear them, he said, while Google Australia has also provided rings for its 1300 staff to wear."1
An employee of one of the big four banks, who is “constantly bombarded” with same-sex marriage propaganda, also expressed concern that: “As a Christian, this puts employees like me in the position of having to justify my faith against my employment… A sad state of affairs in a country where freedom of religion was once a prized right.” 2
The ring brands the non-wearer as a “bigot”. It’s dressed up as being all about “love”, but the implied threat is that any employee of one of these corporate cheerleaders who doesn’t wear the ring will be branded a “marriage-denier”, ostracised, and denied promotion. 2
This “voluntary” ring policy is simply more discrimination and bigotry in action. How long before those who refuse to bow the knee to the rainbow warriors are forced to wear yellow patches with the words, “I am a hateful bigot” or some such thing? 3
The ANZACS built Australia with their lives. They sacrificed everything for us. The freedom they fought to give us was the freedom to maintain the Australia they were willing to die for, it was NOT the "freedom" to destroy that Australia.
Destroying a generation of children mentally and physically by teaching them by law changes, by the example of our political and educational leaders, sex-ed classes at schools, corporate product advertising, taxpayer funded programs like the deceptive "Respectful Relationships", "Safe Schools" and "Family Violence" con-jobs, sport marketing etc. etc. that homosexual sex is now normal, healthy, happy and encouraged is NOT FREEDOM.
We owe the ANZACS a lot more than this. Please stand up and be counted. DO NOT LET THEIR LIVES HAVE BEEN SACRIFICED IN VAIN. ACT NOW.

Would you believe it – your workplace is the new battleground for marriage?
This week, big companies took another step to make you feel excluded in your workplace.
On Monday, Qantas and Google announced they would be providing all staff ‘acceptance rings’ to show support for redefining marriage.
As I highlighted on ABC News 24 yesterday – won’t this increase workplace shaming and possible bullying for those that don’t want to redefine marriage? Are they going to feel uncomfortable? Are they still ‘free’ to disagree?
Over the last week, you would have seen a targeted campaign to harass and remove people like you from their jobs for simply believing in the current definition of marriage.
Marriage Alliance has been pushing back, calling out our opposition’s intolerance and speaking up in the media.
We also undertook crucial polling showing that the push to redefine marriage is shrinking.
With your help we can continue getting the truth out to all Australians, working directly in Canberra with politicians, and supporting people like you that are being threatened in the workplace.
Our jobs are clearly under threat, and we need to make sure that all firms, their CEOs, executives and board directors are committed to your free speech in the workplace.
Will you sign our open letter to the directors of these companies, demanding they commit to workplace freedom for people like you?
Without your financial support we will be limited in our ability to speak for your freedoms in the workplace.

Thank you for your support! We are truly grateful.

LGBTQIWPB crusade will lead to a flood of youth mental and physical disease and suicides. It is a cowardly movement targeting children and should be resisted by the people.
Any movement which targets children and aims to normalize sexual acts which are not normal, not healthy, but are in fact depraved, dangerous, and sick, will lead youth to mental health problems and physical diseases for which all Australians will pay the price.
The leaders of the corporate attempt to push gay sex on Australia are all guilty of MASSIVE CHILD ABUSE.
Citizens, shareholders, consumers: YOU can hold these tyrants to account. The politicians are too weak to do anything. The media have been infiltrated and silenced. But YOU can act.
CEO's using ASX listed public company resources to promote gay sex acts to children is NOT ethical or responsible corporate behavior. These CEO;s should be sacked.
QANTAS for example, has so fully been infiltrated by LGBTIQWIP activists that they are now able to use company money and resources to join in the political campaign to redefine marriage and to also just simply impose and promote the whole LGBTIQWIP agenda.
To celebrate the gay mardi gras in Sydney for instance they painted an airplane with the gay political colours and spent millions of dollars promoting an event which quite simply is sexual depravity at its highest.
Even leaving out shareholders, with all of this misuse of an ASX listed public company's resources QANTAS had no consideration for the hurt, offence, discrimination and distress that it caused many Australians who do not agree with doing what gay people do, nor with promoting it to children as being normal.
QANTAS staff, passengers, family's with children at airports, non-QANTAS airport workers, people forced to see their advertising of this, family's who have lost loved ones due to gay sexual diseases such as AIDS, etc. etc. QANTAS just arrogantly cause offense and distress in the name of normalizing gay sex to please the few bullies who have taken control of our once iconic airline.
QANTAS. ONCE A GREAT AUSTRALIAN ICON, IS NOW BEING UNETHICALLY AND IMMORALLY MISUSED TO OFFEND AND IMPOSE. SHAREHOLDERS SPEAK UP!
QANTAS are not alone, the corporate world has been targeted to become a major player in the war on marriage and all non-LGBTIQWIP Australians. Holden, NAB, ANZ, Porter Davis, Woolworths, ADF, Target, Westfield, Myer. All part of the "Offensive Offensive" sweeping Australia and causing immeasurable damage.
On the 4th April 2017 some of Australia’s largest corporate giants unveiled their latest advertising campaign to promote and normalize homosexual sex.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald this new ad campaign is worth over $5 million.
The ad campaign will be inescapable. Gay slogans will be printed on every Qantas boarding pass and other commercial paraphernalia.
This is a war on our freedoms of speech, religion and conscience. It is a war on your children. Marriage is NOT the end game. This forceful movement (with depraved sexual acts at its common core) will NOT stop at marriage.
If a society can fall for man + man = marriage it will fall for anything. Peoples become slaves by force, not willingly but at the gun or by deception. This movement is seeking to subjugate our once free nation. Please act.

Church leaders rediscover their voice in defending traditions
However offensive, efforts to subjugate the opinions of tradition-minded Christians during Australia’s same-sex marriage debate will be a blessing in disguise if they encourage more bishops and church leaders to rediscover their right to free speech, especially on issues pertinent to Christian tradition. The issue has caught readers’ attention. “Where is a modern day Constantine?’’ one letter writer asked, referring to the Roman Emperor who outlawed religious persecution in the 4th century.
For too long, most Catholic and Anglican bishops and other Christian leaders in Australia have been practising “elected silence’’ in the public square. Some have ventured forth to rubber stamp politically correct polemics on climate change or refugee policy; many have also frustrated their flocks by adopting the “I will follow my people’’ passive leadership style.
Despite large church bureaucracies and well-resourced media departments in most dioceses, funded by those who pray and pay, few Christian leaders take the initiative on controversial issues relevant to their church priorities. The silence of Christian (and other) church leaders over the insidious gender “fluidity’’ programs being inflicted on schoolchildren and exposed week after week by The Australian has been deafening.
Few, if any, church leaders in Victoria, for example, have condemned the targeting of “sexist’’ preschoolers under the guise of “preventing family violence’’. Many families would prefer to see four year-olds being sent out to play and taught to enjoy reading rather than being guilt-tripped and confused with ideologically driven gender programs. Leaders who take a consistent stand on that argument will win respect.
When they do speak up, Christian leaders normally do well. Brisbane’s Catholic Archbishop Mark Coleridge was a standout this year when he took on Queensland Deputy Premier Jackie Trad and others over the bill introduced by independent Rob Pyne, a former Labor MP, to liberalise the state’s abortion laws. His measured, sensible intervention, alongside a groundswell of grassroots opinion, contributed to the legislation being dropped.
Sydney’s Catholic Archbishop Anthony Fisher is one of the very few who has taken on the euthanasia controversy. In other states, priests who have received little encouragement from their bishops are working quietly with the Australian Christian Lobby in anticipation of a push across several jurisdictions to follow Holland and Belgium down that problematic path.
It’s been a long time since a range of church leaders and groups has spoken up as unambiguously in defence of Christian doctrine as participants in the same-sex marriage debate are doing. Perhaps that explains why a small minority of same-sex marriage activists have overreacted, vilifying the ACL and the Lachlan Macquarie Institute to the point where those bodies sought and were granted permission to keep the names of their board members secret, on the grounds of “public safety’’. Last year Hobart’s Catholic Archbishop Julian Porteous was reported to the Tasmanian Human Rights Commission over the church’s moderate, respectful statement, Don’t Mess with Marriage.
On that score, Christian leaders could light another bonfire hit if they challenged a few cringe-worthy reality TV shows. As a Lenten penance they could watch Married at First Sight or Seven Year Switch.
Occasionally, confusing signals have come from parts of the Anglican Communion and the Vatican on same-sex unions. Last week Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and his “husband’’, architect Gauthier Destenay, received a warm welcome at the Vatican.
While most bishops are still silent, the attacks on the ACL prompted strong defences from two of Australia’s most senior archbishops, Anthony Fisher, and his Anglican counterpart in Sydney, Glenn Davies. On this page on Friday, Davies wrote what many churchgoers know — the only upside of abuse being hurled at Christians is that “people are beginning to wake up and take notice’’. As Fisher says, “it has long been part of our culture that Australians of all faiths or none contribute to open discussion, without intimidation, coercion or bullying”.
At a time when extremist Islamists are attempting to shake the foundations of Western societies, the archbishop’s defence of the Christian underpinnings of democracy — to a business lunch on Friday — was pertinent. Contemporary democracy, he said, had been influenced by the scriptures and Christian tradition — “beliefs about the dignity of the human person, the rule of law, human rights, separation of church and state, respect for the individual and conscience, and government for the common good’’.
That is not well understood, especially by young people, whose knowledge of history is scant. Christian leaders need to make those points clearly and consistently as a backdrop to the war on terror and extremism.
As Fisher said, since the Enlightenment, some have sought post-Christian foundations for democracy. But the jury is still out on whether agnostic liberalism will ever be enough to ground the democratic experiment. The evidence of recent times suggests he is right when he says “it would be naive to think a ‘live and let live’ attitude will be sufficient for dealing with the problems of a diverse community such as Australia’s in the future’’. The strengthening of democracy and our social fabric is the best reason for Christians to join in the national conversation.

Minister, our military should be above politics
Dear Marise Payne, Minister for Defence
All Australians are grateful for the skill, bravery and sacrifice of our defence personnel.
We are so fortunate to have such a professional and highly capable defence force protecting not just our physical safety but also our nation’s freedoms and values.
Minister, it is essential that our defence force remains above politics.
This has been a proud tradition of our military for over 100 years.
Minister Payne, your petitioners call for a reinstatement of the ban on members of the armed forces participating in political activities while in uniform.
Minister, millions of Australians are concerned about the consequences of the LGBTI political agenda.
We are concerned about how our freedoms will be protected if the Marriage Act is changed.
Marching in uniform shows incredible disrespect to the concerns of millions of Australians worried about the threats to their freedom if marriage is redefined.
We call on you to restore our military’s proud tradition of not involving itself in political affairs.

Ideas have consequences, and bad ideas have victims. False promises of love and personal fulfillment are no exception.
Over a year and-a-half after the Obergefell decision, the debate over gay “marriage” and homosexuality has largely fizzled out: partly because of the election, partly because the “T” in the LGBT acronym has been stealing all the headlines, and partly because Obergefell is now viewed by many as settled law. And that’s a shame, because so-called “progress” isn’t bringing about the rosy picture we were promised.
In what may be the most candid piece in Huffington Post history, Michael Hobbes, who identifies as gay, writes about what he calls an “epidemic of loneliness.”
“For years,” he begins, “I’ve noticed the divergence between my straight friends and my gay friends. While one half of my social circle has disappeared into relationships, kids and suburbs, the other has struggled through isolation and anxiety, hard drugs and risky (behavior).”
Through story after story and mountains of statistics, Hobbes then documents a consistent and chilling trend among those who share his lifestyle. “Gay men everywhere, at every age,” he writes, are two-to-ten-times more likely than heterosexual men to commit suicide.
And that’s just the beginning. Homosexual males also suffer from higher rates of cardiovascular disease, cancer, allergies, asthma, and a whole host of behavior-related infections and dysfunctions. They’re twice as likely to experience major depressive episodes, report having fewer close friends, and abuse drugs at an alarming rate.
In fact, living in so-called “gay neighborhoods” is a predictor of more frequent, risky behaviors and methamphetamine use. And, Hobbes adds, the community itself is brutal and degrading to its members. Smart-phone hookup apps drive a culture of exploitation and casual encounters that one young man he interviewed said made him feel like “a piece of meat.”
We often hear these disastrous statistics and stories attributed to homophobia, bullying, and shame. Having been treated horribly since childhood, men like this author—the oft-repeated myth goes—are forced to live a lie. They’re depressed because they’ve been oppressed and repressed.
But here’s the problem with the bullying hypothesis. In countries like the Netherlands and Sweden where same-sex “marriage” has been the law of the land for years, gay men remain three times more susceptible to mood disorders and three- to ten-times more likely to engage in “suicidal self-harm.”
The situation is so bad that one respondent in a survey of HIV clinics told researchers, “It’s not a question of not knowing how to save their lives. It’s a question of them not knowing if their lives are worth saving.”
Incredibly, after this long and brutal and well-documented description of life in his community, Hobbes then concludes the cause as having minority status, which has taught them to live in fear. At no point does he consider the possibility that it’s the lifestyle itself that may be what’s destroying these men’s lives.
Still, one expert quoted in the piece hints that he knows what’s going on. Christopher Stults, a researcher at New York University, admits that for many people, the marriage decision was a letdown. “We have this legal status, and yet there’s still something unfulfilled.”
Could it be that this lifestyle cuts off this community from the natural family, from children, and--according to years of statistics—from monogamous partnerships? Could it be the disparity Hobbes sees between what he wants and what he got is a result of a broken lifestyle? Could it be that this behavior naturally isolates people? Could it be that God didn’t design His image-bearers to live like this, and when we do, it actually destroys us?
Unfortunately, those questions are no longer even considered by Hobbes or by social scientists. But we as a society, and especially the Church, must consider these questions. As long as there are real people trying to fill their hearts with lies, caring about them will mean having a more open mind than the Huffington Post.

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.
