A ROCKY ROAD AHEAD FOR GAY MARRIAGE
...because it will be all about the question
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
At the moment the question something like “Do you agree to the marriage Act being changed to allow same sex couples to be married?” Sounds pretty reasonable eh? I mean who could possibly object to that? Unfortunately the gay Left intends changing far more than that. And if the “No” case is presented truthfully the plebiscite hasn’t got a snowflake’s chance in hell.
Labor doesn’t dare be honest about what they intend just yet and it’s the very reason they don’t want a plebiscite... simply because they suspect it will not pass a people’s vote.
What the Labor Party wants changed in the Marriage Act is this, and it’s not merely a “change” to the Act as the question implies, it’s the entire “destruction” of the Act: First to go is the mention of him, her, she, he, groom, bride, husband, and wife. Of course there can be no religious or theistic connotations such as, “...according to God's holy ordinance” and all that stuff.
In place of all the gender specific nomenclatures above will be the gender neutral title of “persons”, although most of the words, “love”, “cherish” etc are to stay, but the despised word, “obey” will be stricken from all ceremonies as being highly sexist.

The Labor fear that alternative lifestyles will be hurt by a national debate is unfounded as Australians are inherently fair and understand the dilemma, but the LGBT community must also respect traditional marriage and what it means to straight Australians.

Labor will claim a “yes” vote means yes to a gender neutral Act. And that’s where the fun starts. Using public funds the Greens, Wongs and Pliberseks will set out to mislead those intending to vote “yes”. They will lie in the best of the Left’s tradition and then claim that Australia agrees with trashing the Marriage Act.
But if the question put to the people was the truth, like, “Do you agree to the Marriage Act being trashed and replaced with neutral vows that only apply to gays, transgenders, dunno who I wanna bes and lesbians”, then of course the plebiscite “no” vote bolts in and gay marriage gets shelved for a couple more decades.
Aussies will never feel comfortable with the gay lifestyle until two blokes kissing becomes as acceptable as two girls kissing.
So the upshot is that the debate so far is a bloody joke and the LGBT activists are living under a misconceived rainbow that they themselves created.
... and really, the honest fair dinkum LGBT community deserves better than that.
