Let me just put it out there.
I support gay marriage. Fully.
I’m not religious and I don’t have any moral opposition to gay people actually getting married. Not at all.
Heck, let them experience all the joys of marriage and the destruction of divorce. It’s all a package anyway.
However, what I do oppose is the blatant false packaging of the gay marriage debate here in Australia. Here’s a known fact most of the moronic lefties won’t tell you.
We already have gay marriage, we have had it for years. It was just under a different name. It’s called being De Facto and while it used a different name, it has the same or similar process to being married. One thing you can be sure of: they both have the same rights. Many people in Australia, straight or gay, are in a legal, De Facto relationship that allows them the same legal rights as any married couple.
It was a great idea by the previous government anyway, to please both liberals and religious conservatives. The rights are the same, the only thing different is the name (which then satisfied also the prickly churches). It even rhymes. I’m happy with that.
So, as my lovely sibling so put it, upon doing some questioning and getting a few facts from me, said:
What did we say Yes to?
Let’s go over this.
- We said Yes to the restriction of Free Speech. With the constitution changing the naming and definition of marriage to include ‘gay marriage’ (in name mainly of course, the rights are already there), Lefties can now use ‘gay marriage’ to justify an LGBTQ agenda and shut down anyone who may not believe in gay marriage by accusing them of discrimination or worse, hate speech.
- We said Yes to attacking religious freedoms. While I am not religious myself, with the existence of ‘gay marriage’, churches (trust me, they’ll only target Christians and not certain other religions) can now be sued or boycotted for refusing to conduct gay marriage ceremonies. What do you mean they won’t sue? There’s nothing in place to protect churches from being sued. No legal framework at all included here.
- We said Yes to advocating mature LGBTQ content, including fictional propaganda, to be shoved down the throats of our children in schools. Now I know this one fairly well, since I am studying teaching myself, I have had to look at this. Mainly, the programs Respectful Relationships and Safe Schools are the issue, as they both contain elements of gender theory and the dissuasion against gender roles that are not only pure political brainwashing, they also have no basis in science and facts.
What sort of content? Content like introducing prepubescent kids to sex toys, erotica and having them role play as transgender people in relationships. This stuff is meant for adults who have a more mature understanding and can choose to or not to engage in this knowledge.
As someone who works with and deeply cares about the welfare of children, I just cannot stand by and allow this politicised, legalised form of child abuse.
So, really, we didn’t say Yes to gay marriage. We can’t say yes to something that’s already there. We just did a name change.
A name change that includes a lot of political agendas as its baggage to fool you, under the guise of colourful rainbow flags and cute ‘Yes!’ signs. They were made to look pretty, make you feel so good about doing your bit in social justice, without allowing you to think deeply on this subject and see what is really going on here.
I believe in gay marriage, I truly do.
Just not these hidden agendas and forced brainwashing of children.
