3rd July 2016
If the ALP/Greens rainbow juggernaut takes marriage in Australia, will Christians, the Church and the Bible be their next target. Think about it. Laws teach. Changing the marriage law will be an attempt by the law to normalize, teach and protect something which the Christian church and its founding document the Bible says is "detestable," "unnatural" and "shameful."
In part, it is this divine denunciation of homosexual behavior which drives the rainbow movement forward, as they rebel and demand earthly acceptance. Just succeeding in changing the marriage law will not fully appease the juggernaut nor will it be enough to appease the consciences of those who seek to lift its unrelenting and burdensome weight.
If the rainbow movement say what they do is good, normal and happy and has the full support of the law of the land, but the Christians and their Bible say it is still "detestable," "unnatural" and "shameful."what do you think is most likely to happen?
Logically, the forceful rainbow movement, with the law and resources of the State on its side, will seek to silence such opposition. If any Australian citizen who speaks up in the public square today and says they support traditional marriage is shouted down as a "bigot, hater, homophobe and dinosaur who has no place in modern Australia" what will they do to Christians and the Church and the Bible?
Can you see what is coming? If the ALP/Greens win on July 2nd, it may not take very long at all before Christian congregations in Australia are labelled as "hate groups" and their Bible as "hate literature." Christians will be prevented from being able to freely share the gospel with their fellow Australians.
The homosexual movement already have full equality under the law in Australia. Over 80 pieces of legislation have been changed to make this happen. Marriage is not something which accommodates any grouping of participants, it is simply something for men and women. That is just how it is. That does not take anything away from anyone else's relationship.
I think we should be wary of proposals to make such dramatic changes to something like marriage, when put forward so forcefully with no room for respectful discussion about their proposal, just name calling and intimidation. If what they propose has merit it should be put up for a peoples vote, rather than imposed on the people without due process. There is more at stake from this than we are being told. It is a time for caution and a longer period of reflection before we allow politicians to make any radical changes to our foundations.
