Marriage is worth defending. Although the media may make you feel you are alone, you are not alone: "There is nothing homophobic about supporting traditional marriage." - Former Australian Prime Minister John Howard. “You will never build a society on it. You will not build a nation on it.” - Former Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating on same-sex marriage. It is "an affront to the Aboriginal People of Australia to suggest another definition of marriage." - Statement from 70 Aboriginal leaders opposing same-sex "marriage.'

5 Reasons to Defend Traditional Marriage and Family by Saying “No” to Same-sex ‘Marriage’
1. Same-sex “marriage” is not marriage. It is very different so call it something else.
Calling something marriage does not make it marriage. Homosexual union denies the obvious biological, physiological, and psychological differences between men and women which find their complementarity in marriage. It denies the purpose of marriage: the perpetuation of the human race and the raising of children. Two different things cannot be considered the same thing. Marriage is not just any relationship. It is a relationship governed by a principle of nature. Men and women "fit" together.
2. Same-sex "marriage" uses the law to teach, promote and normalize homosexual sex acts to children.
How can teaching children that homosexual sex acts are healthy and normal be in any way a public good for society? The rectum is designed to excrete human waste out of the anus and historically homosexual sex acts are responsible for millions of AIDS deaths and orphaned children around the world. How can normalizing such behavior be a good thing?
3. Same-sex “marriage" Always denies a child either a father or a mother.
Same-sex “marriage” intentionally makes children orphans and ignores a child’s best interest. Mums and Dads matter to every child.
4. Recognizing Same-sex “marriage” confuses children, divides communities, restricts freedom of speech, religion and conscientious objection, validates and promotes homosexual sex acts.
Laws teach. They influence patterns of thought and behavior and shape the life of society. It will teach that sodomy is normal. Worse, it encourages children to do it or to let adults do it to them. The State will become a promoter of dangerously unhealthy sex acts responsible for epidemics including AIDS, hepatitis, anal cancer, gonorrhea and gastro infections. The State will force people opposed to this to accept it, will order schools to teach the acceptability of homosexual sex acts to children, and will punish anyone who resists. Freedom to speak against homosexual behavior will be abolished. Religious practice and freedoms will need to be regulated by the State. Conscientious objectors will be dealt with. Citizens will be intimidated, blacklisted and discriminated against. Fear and division will reign in place of freedom.
5. A moral wrong cannot be a civil right if our society is to continue to flourish.
Same-sex “marriage” is not a human rights issue similar to the struggle for racial equality or women's rights. Sexual behavior and race are very different realities. Two individuals, no matter their “race” are still man and woman, and thus the requirements of nature are respected. Racism has nothing to do with making "sodomy," and all the other highly dangerous sex and lifestyle acts performed by homosexuals, a human rights issue. They are completely different, morally and in every other way and need to be restrained in society not normalized and encouraged.

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.
