Larry Pickering

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.


My little boy took me to his school yesterday for a fathers’ day barbeque. We got through two sausages each before he showed me his school desk and what he has been doing all year.

                                                           Happy faces

After I copped the usual, "Oh did you bring your grandad today, dear", I settled down and took an interest in his schoolwork. 

He gave me a drawing of us both and a present he had fashioned for me with his deft little fingers.

It was a box made from paddle pop sticks that I will use for my forever lost pencil sharpener and eraser. On top of the box were some stars and a poem someone who cared (I reckon a wonderful teacher) had written:

Here is a box

To hold all your keys

I made it with love 

I made it with ease

I added some bling 

To make your heart sing

With all of my love

Dad, you mean everything

It was nice to see the other fathers with their little boys who were wide-eyed and grinning with pride at showing their dads, not only their school desks, but showing their dads to the others kids.

                                                        Irreplaceable grins

I am not looking forward to next year because if the GGGGLL (Gangrenous-Gay-Green-GetUp-Labor-Left) get their way it will not be called fathers’ day, but “persons’ day”. 

Now that might be okay for the two mums of one little boy, but I’m not sure about the other 30 dads. 

“Person” doesn’t sound like “dad” to me and, let’s face it, “person” could be anyone from mum, to an uncle, to the next door neighbour, or to even the local priest. And I suspect “person” doesn’t sound like “dad” to the kids either.

                                       Sometimes it just doesn't get any better

Oh well. I guess that’s what the GGGGLL call progressive progress and the thin edge of the wedge to make everything in our lives, including the marriage Act, non gender specific.

I hope they at least leave “fathers’ day” alone. Those beaming little faces are irreplaceable and the poor little fella with the two mums? 

Well, he will have a grin twice as wide on “mothers’ day”. 


And we don't fight back. Just cop it .

I sympathise with those parents who find out their child has decided to be a practicing Homosexual...Being your child, you must, as Kin support them ....However in the back of their minds, it must be about as depressing as finding out your kid is a Serial Killer...
Honestly....What parent would have wished for that outcome when the kid was born?

And strapping on a plastic dildo and inserting it into a fat, ugly woman is not so good for getting pregnant.

Sticking your dick into another man's rectum is not the best way to become a father.

I think the weirdos will run into a great deal of trouble if they attack Fathers' Day.

If weirdos want a special person/queer parent day, they should make their own and leave our Father's Day and Mother's Day alone! :P

Just in case you miss this in comments below!

Very prophetic article Larry!!!! My daughter just rang me to tell me one of her friends sent a photo to her mobile phone with a photo of Woolworths selling a chocolate mud cake with the words "Happy Special Person's Day! " What a wonderful world these bastards have made. Very sad! Time the decent people all bought a gun!

What is worse for a child than a single mum household? A double mum household..

Why is all this progressive bullshit being allowed to see the fucking light of fucking day? So few screwing the population over. Effing cee's.

Ah! Some clarification. Well know SSM participant, activist and gay icon Stephen Fry declares; " homosexuality does not include anal sex but is restricted to mutual masterbation." Is this then going to be enshrined in whatever legislation our SSM Storm Troopers are advocating/demanding? Or are we leaving it open for bestiality and sodomy to be accepted as normal sexual behaviour between consenting adults and animals at the same time?

Enduring an abusive relationship is "sacrifices and hard work"?

Kym, you must have gays (faggots, poofs, homos, lebos, queers,cats, lickers, bum bandits, shit lifters, poo jabbers, carpey munchers, trannies ) in your family, as I do, so why do they control our life????

Once they get ''Marriage Equality '' they then will Demand the ''Right'' to adopt children ,what will happen when your 8 year old son has been asked to stay over at his mates place for the weekend who as two homo fathers ? and you say NO ! will they sue you for discrimination ?

John Howard, former Australian Prime Minister

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 speaking up in the face of this attack on our society’s foundations. 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 depraved sex acts 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 can 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.
People are free to behave however they want and reap the consequences of their actions, as applies to all of us, however they are not free to impose gay sex on children, effectively grooming them to become gay or gay activists. Surely not without a fight at least. They are also not free to donate their blood according to the Red Cross and FDA, because it is deemed at a high risk of being contaminated with diseases which will wreak havoc on our communities. Therefore they should be required to give disclaimers in their campaigns to normalize and promote their unusual, unnatural and unhealthy sexual activity.
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. Please tell your politicians.

It has been a catastrophic seismic shift in Canada but the draconian legislation supporting SSM has totally crushed free speech and has devastated the predominantly heterosexual population. Legislation can not change people's opinion and attitudes. There will eventually be a strong backlash. I don't want to see that here.

No NWO, do some research.

myk - I don't know who or what you are. I can only judge you on your words. You say "small adjustment." Very convenient terminology.

If its so irrelevant, why the zealous push for homo marriage..

Annie Mac. I agree with you about the NWO being behind it all. Changing the marriage act is the first step to destroying the entire western civilization by destroying our culture right down to the family unit and to how we perceive ourselves. I will vote no. There is no need for SSM as most LGBTQI acknowledge. They are stupidly risking an incredible back-lash by destroying the true meaning of marriage.
