Labor’s “same-sex marriage in 100 days” pledge falls flat - again!
Labor has now contested two federal elections promising to legislate same-sex marriage within 100 days, recording two of the lowest primary votes in its history.
ACL Managing Director Lyle Shelton said it was time for Labor to move back to the sensible centre on social policy.
“It’s time Labor rethought its support for issues like same-sex marriage and the gender-bending, so-called “Safe Schools” program,” Mr Shelton said.
“The long-running debate about changing the definition of marriage is clearly not an issue for mainstream voters. They are focussed on other things while political elites and some in the media are fixated with same-sex marriage.
“The record vote for minor parties and independents is further evidence of mainstream disillusionment with the major parties and the Greens which have been too focussed on fringe, politically correct agendas.”
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.

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.
