Telstra and the battle of the lobby groups – Telstra now ACTIVELY SUPPORTING ‘marriage equality’
Telstra doesn’t quite know what it should say about homosexual ‘marriage’. They have previously been quite outspoken in their support, even having their name and logo featured in an Australian Marriage Equality advertisement and website.
But Telstra have changed their position THREE times in the past week…
Last week it was revealed that the Catholic Church had written to Telstra, asking them not to make a public stand to support homosexual ‘marriage’ – this was particularly significant from a financial perspective, since the Catholic Church and Telstra have an agreement worth millions of dollars about the provision of ‘services’ and a telecommunications network for schools!
Telstra released a statement saying they would not be making public statements about ‘marriage’ since individual employees and customers had differing views (but denied that their change in position had anything to do with the pressure from the Catholic Church – see SMH report).
That’s what we say ALL companies should be doing – a company should be NEUTRAL in this debate and not take sides!
But backlash ensued from the homosexuals and their supporters – and Telstra BACK-FLIPPED.
One question is… Did our side make comments or commend Telstra? Or did they ONLY hear from those opposing their statement?
Following the criticism, Telstra said that they still support ‘marriage equality’ but won’t make public statements.
MORE criticism followed – and Telstra gave in… A third statement said that Telstra would ACTIVELY support the campaign for ‘marriage equality’!
This report includes ALL THREE STATEMENTS from Telstra and relevant media articles…
ACTION: TELL Telstra and CE Andy Penn that they should stay out of this political debate and respect the views of ALL their customers…

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.
