Please be aware that today and this week very serious issues are in public debate that will critically impact Families, Churches, Christian Schools and Organisations:
Every imaginable force is being unleashed today to try and overturn the purpose, protection and principles of marriage as designed by God and endorsed by Jesus. If people of faith fail to push back against the sexual revolution now - then the political activists will win and we will live with dire consequences for generations!
Call to action:
Religious Freedom Under Attack
The Victorian State government has introduced a Bill to be debated later this week to restrict the ability of religious bodies, charities, schools and educational institutions to employ staff according to their faith and values.
It will require Christian organisations (and other faiths) to justify in any complaint to a secular tribunal why youth leaders, counsellors, principals, teachers, youth workers, accountants, administration and support staff need to conform to the beliefs or practices of their faith. While this is a Victorian action this week, it will become a national issue when the same restrictions flow on to other states.
Call to action:
Unsafe Schools Indoctrinating Your Kids
All children have the right not to be bullied at school or online. Anti-bullying programs must emphasise respect for each and every other person, not single out any one group as though only that group faces bullying.
Parents have the right to decide when it is the right time to talk to their children about intimate LGBTI issues, not the state and not the school.
Parents have the right to determine what values they want taught to their children. Of concern is that the person who set up the Safe Schools Coalition Australia, Roz Ward, claims that the program is part of a strategy to radically change society as claimed by its creator, Roz Ward, who claims that “the homosexual cannot win liberation without a general sexual liberation.”
While children an education in human biology appropriate to their age, they also have the right to be protected by the state and by their schools from the Safe Schools Coalition program that links to pornographic web content, sex shops, adult online communities and sex clubs.
Call to action:
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.
