From the Canberra Declaration.org.au
We have seen many amazing things happen over the past six years since the Canberra Declaration came into existence on 23 July 2010. Over 69,000 Australians have signed the Canberra Declaration. Wonderful things have happened as a result of your emails, letters, phone calls, prayers and your personal activism.
Australia is the only country in the English-speaking Western world that still has marriage defined as being between a man and a woman. The Canberra Declaration community has played an important role in the battle for marriage in Australia and we believe will continue to do so. The greatest results have occurred as we have mixed our personal activism with our personal prayers.
The Canberra Declaration has been the greatest supporter of the National Day of Prayer & Fasting. This year the National Day of Prayer & Fasting was held on 7 February 2016, in the Great Hall, Parliament House, Canberra. This was the very same day the Safe School's horror story began to unravel in mainstream media. This unravelling has not stopped. Is this a coincidence or is it divine providence? We believe the latter. Soli Deo Gloria!

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.
