If the law and resources of the state proactively require affirmation of homosexual behavior under threat of punishment, we longer live in a free country.
Redefining marriage will legally discriminate against those who hold the traditional view of marriage, and outlaws the legitimate view of millions of people that homosexual sex acts are sexual immorality.
Laws teach. A law which promotes and protects something (homosexual sex) which billions of people around the world have always considered to be immoral, unnatural and harmful, will cause social havoc, division and confusion. It will restrict freedom of speech and religion. It will effectively criminalize those who publicly proclaim agreement with the contents of the biggest selling book the world has ever known, the Bible, which will stand in direct opposition to the change of the Marriage Act being proposed.
If the law and resources of the state proactively require affirmation of homosexual behavior under threat of punishment, we longer live in a free country. The indoctrination of school children by the state, restrictions on what Christian and Jewish Australians can speak about in public, good citizens imprisoned and fined for speaking what they legitimately hold to be truth. Churches burned down due to the mob hatred against Christians spread by the pro-homosexual media. The Bible potentially banned! Australia will no longer be young and free.
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
