The Nazis in Germany and the fascists in Italy in the 1930's, bullied their societies into silent submission. People were too afraid to speak out against them because they were bullied, black-listed, discriminated against, persecuted, arrested, fined, shot. The silent submission didn't lead to things getting better for the silent majority. Giving in to them wasn't the end of it, it was just the beginning! Years of pain and suffering followed as the oppressors took over and did their thing.
Allowing ourselves to be bullied and silenced into giving up two of the foundations of our free society, traditional family and traditional marriage, will not be the end of it. It is the family and marriage now, but what will be next?
The Bible states pretty clearly that homosexual acts are, to put it mildly, not good for people, so the proponents of so called same sex "marriage" must logically come after the Bible next and Christians, and Jews, and...
So we could see the State regulating religion and banning books. We will see other groups demanding Australia accommodate their own ideological "laws" so as not to "discriminate" against them, etc., etc.
The rapid speed with which homosexual “marriage” has bullied its way into Western societies and found limited resistance (the masses are too frightened to speak up) is just the beginning. If we can offer no answers against this we can offer no answers against anything.
“In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.” Martin Niemoller.
We all need to speak up for the protection of traditional family and marriage, because the threat is quite imminent. It is not about speaking up against homosexuals, but about standing up for and protecting something which governments, judges, minority groups, media, Hollywood etc. have no right, power or authority to undermine.
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.
