The proponents of so-called same-sex "marriage" very often pretend to be the victims so as to cease any logical reasoning and honest investigation of their attempt to abolish traditional marriage and family and remove religious freedoms and free speech from our good society. They say they feel offended, insulted, humiliated and discriminated against. But are they victims?
Just who is being insulted, offended, humiliated and discriminated against by this movement to normalize homosexual behavior in our society, to forcefully teach it in our schools and promote it in our society?
This proposal to use the law to protect and defend homosexuals against anyone who dares to speak against this behavior is divisive, ominous and chilling.
Who has caused all this division in our community? The homosexual community have initiated this attempt to undermine a timeless institution, one from which enormous good comes for men, women, children and society.
The proponents say that even a national debate about this proposed change will be harmful to the children of same-sex couples. But what about the greater harm which will be done to the many millions of children if this change goes unchallenged? What about the harm already being perpetrated upon children in government schools by the removal of religious education and its replacement by forced indoctrination of homosexual behavior upon our children?
If something works so well there is absolutely no reason to change it. The proponents of this suggested major structural change to our society should be required to convince all Australians that a change is needed. Yet they are furiously and desperately trying to stop a national debate and referendum. Why? What are they afraid of?
In the way they are forcing this issue, through intense intimidation, personal attacks, black-listing, bullying and using anti-discrimination laws to silence all opponents, they reveal their modus operandi, one which has been used successfully throughout history and has every chance of succeeding in any society in which the people are asleep and disinterested.
If people do not speak up and defend marriage and family now, they will wake up to a society in which its people are no longer free. No freedom of speech. No freedom of religion. The state will regulate what you read and hear and believe. Then later, no freedom of political thought, restrictions on freedom to congregate, no conscientious objections...
Freedom is lost gradually but the decline begins by a seemingly innocuous deception, such as changing the legal definition of marriage.
Most in our increasingly secular society may think that the main people who are offended, insulted, humiliated, ridiculed and discriminated against by the same-sex movement are just Christians or other religious people. They may well think this is okay. But in removing individual freedoms, through the pervasive consequences from such a seemingly small change in the law, will affect every Australian in one way or another.
“In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up." Martin Niemoller.
The safest thing to do is to do nothing and just leave marriage alone. The civil law already gives the proponents all the protection and recognition they need.
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.
