Why you should contact your local politicians to encourage them to defend marriage: because they need you to help them withstand the enemies at our gates.
Pope Francis says: “True statecraft is manifest when, in difficult times, we uphold high principles and think of the long-term common good. Political powers do not find it easy to assume this duty in the work of nation-building.”
They need you to encourage them to be men and women of integrity in this work of nation-building, to encourage them to uphold long-held principles which have worked so well for thousands of years and do not need to be changed, and to encourage them to think of the long-term common good of all Australians, especially our children, and to resist the intimidation from a minority who are trying to force their ideology onto the majority and in the process undermine our very freedom.
Our forebears fought for our freedom. If you do not stand up now in defence of this freedom you will lose it.
Please email your local politicians today and every month until this threat is removed.
Why defend marriage against the same-sex movement? Simply because marriage is what it is and it is not two men or two women. That is called something else, it is not called marriage. If we confuse such foundations as marriage we will be open to attacks on everything else we hold dear and foundational.
But the threat to our freedom is bigger than this Trojan horse attack on marriage law, it is bigger and very insidious. They say it is just about marriage, but it is deeper than that, it is about installing a widespread anti-religion secular authoritarian ideology which only starts with planting the seed of destruction by dismantling our foundational marriage laws.
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.

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.
