The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights examines human rights issues in pieces of legislation.
Its wide-ranging report released yesterday rejected a bill put forward by Liberal National MP Warren Entsch.
The concerns about this legislation, which is designed to teach, promote and defend the sexual practice of sodomy, went further than just having grave concerns about rights to religious freedom, arguing that it breaches rights in regards to families and children.
The robotic response from anti-marriage activists was as expected. "This is just the latest last-ditch effort for opponents of marriage equality in this Parliament to delay reform, and this time they're cloaking their bigotry and homophobia in the language of human rights and some of the claims that are made are insulting in the extreme," Greens senator Rob Simms said.
"The suggestion that somehow same-sex parents are deficient or failing to meet the needs of children is incredibly insulting.
"It's incredibly insulting to gay and lesbian people and same-sex parents, but it's also insulting to their friends and family right across the community."
But is Senator Simms at all concerned about the children? How can it be in any way beneficial to a child to grow up without a mother or a father figure in their life? How can it be beneficial in any way for a child to have to grow up seeing the sex acts of homosexual men, hearing all the talk about it, and all the other aspects of the homosexual lifestyle?
Don't insult our intelligence Mr. Simms.
How can it be helpful in any way for a child to have to process the information at some stage from their two "dads" that it is good, healthy, loving, respectful and morally beneficial to put your penis in something designed to excrete human waste?
Responsible adults need to stand up and defend children against this onslaught of child abuse about to be unleashed on Australia due to the tsunami of selfish-adult, sexual immorality swamping our shores.

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.
