What should modern Barbarians look like? That is a good question. If they stood out as ugly Barbarians with a sign on them saying "Enemy of your freedoms," we would probably know how to defend ourselves and our children. But the enemy almost always uses deception to gain the upper hand. Just a thought but they would do things like maybe usurp a colourful, peaceful image from the Bible for instance, such as the rainbow?
An article worth reading from the Daily Telegraph should be a warning to all non-LGBTIQWPB/ALP/Greens Australians:

WE’RE persecuting Christians again. It’s a frightening sign, because that’s what barbarians and totalitarians usually do.
The Romans, French revolutionaries, Nazis and Communists all did it. Jihadists do it still. And now it’s done here. The latest examples?
First, same-sex marriage activists savaged the Coopers Brewery for supplying the beer shown in a video of a polite debate between two Liberal MPs, the gay Tim Wilson and the Christian Andrew Hastie.
The Christian was the problem. Hastie said he liked Wilson and respected his relationship with partner Ryan, but was still against expanding the definition of marriage to include same-sex relationships. This Christian view was so shocking that activists boycotted Coopers and forced the Christian-owned brewery to pull the video, apologise and publicly back same-sex marriage.

Next, a former Greens candidate and a Melbourne same-sex marriage group attacked IBM and PwC for hiring Christians who were members of Christian groups that also did not agree with same-sex marriage.
IBM caved. Managing partner Mark Allaby quit the board of the Lachlan Macquarie Institute, a training organisation set up by the Australian Christian Lobby. Now they’re turning on Macquarie University. Gay rights activist Michael Barnett has told the university it was a “bad look” to hire senior research associate Steve Chavura, also a member of the Lachlan Macquarie Institute.
You’d expect a university to defend diversity of thought, wouldn’t you? But Macquarie University, a member of the Pride in Diversity movement, declined to support Chavura, saying only it “asks that employees adhere to the university’s public comment policy”.
But who can rely on our institutions to defend the faith so critical in creating our culture, our freedoms — and them? Even the Queen, officially the Defender of the Faith, now barely dares. Last month her officials had one of her chaplains, Gavin Ashenden, resign for embarrassing her by defending Christianity from the claims of Islam.

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.
