The Tasmanian Anti-Discrimination Commissioner, Robin Banks, has decided to proceed with prosecution of Julian Porteous, the Archbishop of Hobart and the co-accused national conference of Catholic bishops. The complaint was lodged by a transgender Australian Greens Federal Candidate for the seat of Franklin (TAS), Martine Delaney..
The complaint is over a catholic booklet explaining to catholic parents of catholic schools why the church for 2000+ years has understood the importance, sacredness and special meaning of marriage. The booklet is not offensive, it is not illegal, it is something millions of Australian's fully agree with. Read it for yourself: Don’t Mess with Marriage
This is discrimination against people who hold what is still considered a mainstream view in our society, by people who have gained positions of power and now want to use that position to bully, intimidate and subjugate Christians and others who dislike and are quite frankly offended by what they believe, i.e. that sodomy is good, normal and should be promoted by our laws.
This attack on freedom of speech in Tasmania is one of the main reasons why Same-sex "marriage" needs to be defeated. Imagine what will happen if it is law? Same-sex "marriage" will abolish freedom of speech, religion and conscientious objection. This is one of the biggest threats to our freedom in Australia since WWII.
If you don't believe that freedom of speech, religion and conscientious objection are at stake why does Delaney state this very clearly as the objective of this discrimination case:
"Some freedoms are not absolute, and that in a secular society religious freedom must sometimes give way to the law." - Greens candidate Martine Delaney.
The homosexual community leaders had been urging someone within their community to make a complaint to Tasmanian Anti-Discrimination Commissioner as they knew it would be favorably received.
Suddenly we live in a fascist society where we are no longer free to say things like, "marriage is between a man and a woman." Think about that.
This definition of marriage is describing something which has simply always been described like that, it makes sense and is common-sense and we should be free to say it.
Up until the homosexual activists got control of the left-wing political parties, the media and anti-discrimination groups this was as true as saying that 2+2=4. Now they want to prosecute any human being for saying this.
If you let them get away with this WHAT WILL BE NEXT?
It will not stop at this. This is the way that fascists started out in Germany in the 1930s and were able to take control of that country. They need to silence their opposition. You will notice the way anyone who stands in the way of the same-sex juggernaut are vilified, bullied, hated, lied about and pursued until they are silent. This prosecution is a part of that strategy.
Do not think it is only the Christians they are after. They are after all opposition, political, ideological, moral. It is a totalitarian ideology. As Niemoller reminds us, “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."
Please ACT while you still can. Forward this email to as many people as you can. Put it on your social media. Contact your politicians. Sign the petitions. Email the Tasmanian Premier Will Hodgman and complain saying that the commissioner is discriminating against millions of people who will always believe that "marriage can only ever be between a man and a woman."
Australia is still relatively "Young and Free." That does not mean it will always remain so, unless YOU are vigilant in protecting what our forefathers fought and died for. Stand up for freedom today.
"Defending marriage and family is about defending freedom. People lose their freedom by deception or force, never knowingly or willingly. We need to wake up to the very real threat at our doorstep."- Cronshaw Jones.
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.
