Changing the definition of marriage is something which affects everyone:
"(1) changing the meaning of marriage (for ALL of us) from the natural reality of a male-female relationship that typically creates offspring into a government-constructed lie,
(2) changing the meaning of parenting from the natural reality of a mother and father relationship that gives a child kinship and identity into a genderless fiction,
(3) enforcing the normality of homosexual behavior with the full force of anti-discrimination law - especially in our 'safe schools' - and silencing any conscientious objectors - especially in our churches.
"In other words, Mr Shorten, this 'opinion poll' is not just about the 1% of couples in Australia who are same-sex, but about the 99% that are opposite sex;
it is not just about the 1 in a thousand children of same-sex couple-families but about the 999 in a thousand other children.
It is not just about happy wedding days for our gay neighbours; it is about letting the sexual radicals send a wrecking ball through our culture.
"That is why all Australian should have our say - you obviously do not understand what is at stake, and are in no position to decide on our behalf."
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.
