This is a major warning sign to freedom loving Australians:
Greens Robert Simms (Greens), Bill Shorten and Penny Wong (ALP) would be happy to do away with elections and just insist that things happen because they say they already know the will of the people: "Can anyone seriously suggest that we should be spending more than $100 million of taxpayer funds on a question we already know the answer to?"(a plebiscite) he said.
Really? That would be like a CEO doing a quick poll by selecting a hand-full of friendly shareholders of a major corporation and then telling the board and shareholders that their is no need for an expensive 75% shareholder vote to change the corporation's constitution because he already knows the answer!
I would not want to be a shareholder in any company he was running. Why is he in the Senate when he holds Australian voters in such contempt?
"The last thing I want is to see taxpayer money being spent on a divisive campaign against marriage equality, what in effect would become a state-sanctioned, state-funded hate campaign." Said Simms.
Really? What about the hate campaign against right-minded, moral, value-loving, religious and non-religious Australians who disagree with you about the merits of promoting as normal to our children the sexual practices of homosexuals? Why should those who hold to the timeless definition of marriage be silenced just to let you get your way?
What about the hate campaign targeting our children (Safe Schools and BRR) abusing them mentally and physically in the name of some sort of whacky "equality". There is nothing equal between homosexual sex and heterosexual sex.
There is every chance that more than 50% of Australians will vote to defend marriage at a plebiscite and reject the attempt to silence or label as bigots those who reject the normalization of sodomy in our society.
That is why Simms & friends are speaking now, because they know this and fear a people's vote on this foundational issue.
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.
