In Holland, the first nation to legalise same-sex marriage more than a decade ago, there were just 522 marriages of gay men in 2013.
“We know same-sex marriage is a low order political issue for Australians. It also seems to be a low order issue for same-sex attracted men.”
Prominent gay fashion designers Dolce and Gababana, are opposed to gay marriage.
“The only family is the traditional one. No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed,” they told the UK Telegraph.
Dolce added that procreation “must be an act of love”, saying: “You are born to a mother and a father – or at least that’s how it should be.”
Here in Australia prominent gay activist Denis Altman told the Sydney writer’s festival in 2012:
“I am going to speak as a gay man, one of the things about gay male culture is it is not a monogamous culture… There are many longstanding gay relationships, there are virtually no long standing monogamous gay relationships. I happen to think that is a good thing… I would love to have the people out there arguing for same-sex marriage say ‘let’s be clear, marriage is about primary emotional commitment to another person and it doesn’t mean I won’t f**k around’. And that’s what most of us mean when we talk about our relationships and I think it would be really helpful if the same-sex marriage movement had enough guts to say that.”
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.
