"There is nothing homophobic about supporting traditional marriage." - Former Australian Prime Minister John Howard.
Please do not be intimidated or cowed into thinking you cannot speak up for traditional marriage and for family and for children. You can and you should. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Speak boldly for your children's sake and your grandchildren's sake. When future generations see the consequential fruit of destroying traditional marriage and teaching children to accept and try dangerous lifestyles in school sex-ed classes they will ask: "Why did our parents and grandparents allow this?"
It is a bad idea. People who enter into homosexual relationships have full equality under Australian law already. They are free to do what they like. Over 80 pieces of legislation have already been passed to grant full equality to their relationships in the eyes of the law. They are free to enter into what ever sorts of relationships they choose with no discrimination whatsoever. That is up to them and people are generally not too worried about that.
But it is not marriage. Marriage is something very different. Marriage is simply a man and a woman coming together promising to remain faithful to each other at the exclusion of all others, and to build society through having children (if possible) and loving and protecting those children in the structure best designed for doing so.
Every child needs a Mum and a Dad. A man simply cannot be a mother and a woman just cannot be a father. For the sake of children and our society, marriage deserves to be preserved.
Australians should not even be asked to have to choose to change marriage. It simply is what it is. Those proposing to make the change do not even want to debate the merits of what they propose. They just want to impose it.
They have taken away valuable parliamentary time and resources over many years trying unsuccessfully to change marriage laws. They have had their say. They are the ones now forcing tax-payers to bear the cost of a plebiscite. They should do the honorable thing and concede that they already have equality and for the sake of national unity, for the sake of children, they should abandon their selfish quest.
Why are people not concerned about the probability of two pedophile gay men "marrying" and adopting a baby under Daniel Andrew's now legal gay adoption laws? What will happen to that baby. It will never know where it came from. It will be at a high risk of serious abuse. We will not even hear about the consequences of this disgraceful situation until Daniel Andrew's is an old man. But we will still prosecute you Mr. Andrews, when the time comes.
Like their use of the words "rainbow" and "gay" the words "Marriage Equality" are deceptive. They have full equality under the law already. Marriage is for children's and society's benefit not for selfish adults wanting to normalize their minority sexual behavior.
What about children's rights or equality for children? Common sense, not to mention biology, tells us that marriage is between a man and a woman. Children need a mum and a dad.
Rainbow ideology is a threat to future generations. I plead with the homosexual community to please just leave marriage alone, for children's sake and be content with what you have achieved already. Then we can all live together and focus our national attention on something a bit more productive.
