“LEGALISING SAME SEX MARRIAGE IS INEVITABLE”
(Unless There is Open Debate of the Issues)
SSM IS UNLIKELY TO HAVE BEEN LEGALISED IN ANY NATION…
If The Truth Had Not Been Silenced!!
by powerful voices of the Left #
SSM Laws were Passed in So Many Nations WITHOUT ANY DEBATE OF ITS IMPACT!
Far reaching decisions have been made by legislators after long periods of emotional appeals and stories by the media and then the repetition of “IT IS INEVITABLE”, then pushed through in parliaments with effective gagging of open debate of its impact on society.
(It is a well-known fact that the Public come to believe statements repeated publicly often enough)
Those who dared try to reveal such facts were shamed with the cry: “HATE”.
Never before have such nation-changing decisions been made in so many nations without detailed Parliamentary enquiry and debate of the implications for every part of society
HOW COULD IT HAPPEN ON THIS ISSUE?
Only because of the long campaign by major forces at work to prevent such enquiry which would reveal its dangers.
Is it just the Same Sex Marriage lobby? … OR is it another movement ??

WHAT IS LEGALISING SAME SEX MARRIAGE ABOUT?
IRELAND POLL RESULT: “NOT ABOUT GAY MARRIAGE”! !
Gay response to Poll was NOT ‘We can finally get married’, but ‘Gays have finally been validated.’
The day after the poll talk was of ‘recognition’, not “marriage”!
– The main aim has been seen as about forcing attitudes of acceptance of Gay culture on society.
(Note: Only 60% of those eligible voted in Ireland’s poll: 62% of these said “yes”. ie 32% “yes”overall!)
LOSS OF FREEDOMS UNDER SEX MARRIAGE LAWS
LOSS OF COMMUNITY FREEDOM IN CANADA (Same Sex Marriage Law Passed 2005)
- Freedom of speech, of the press, of religion and of association have suffered greatly.
- Questioning SSM could lead to discipline, including termination of employment, or prosecution.
- Parents wanting to take children out of sex education classes deemed to be “unfit parents” and children removed from their care under this law.
- “Natural Parent” with “Legal Parent” in all Federal laws erasing biological parenthood, removed children’s UN rights to know and be raised by their own biological parents.
- The Government has the right to decide how children shall be raised and how and at what age they shall by taught sex education in schools.
- Children are now raised in a society with no distinction between male and female,

LOSS OF CHRISTIAN FREEDOM IN CANADA
‘The days of socially acceptable Christianity are over. The days of comfortable Catholicism are past…. Powerful forces and currents in our society press us to be ashamed of the Gospel … ashamed of our faith’s teachings on marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife. These forces insist that the Church’s teachings are out of date, retrograde, insensitive, uncompassionate, illiberal, bigoted, even hateful … these same forces say you are a homophobe, a bigot, someone who doesn’t believe in equality. You even represent a threat to people’s safety. You ought to be ashamed!”
IMPACT OF SAME SEX LAWS IN MASSACHUSETTS (Law Passed 2003 – First in USA)

“SSM DEEPLY AFFECTS CHILDREN”: Latest Most Reliable Research
The Most Detailed Research Reveals Shocking Impact on Children in Same Sex families
The most rigorous study ever conducted has overturned the conventional academic wisdom that such children suffer no disadvantages. Research “breaks the log-jam in the SSM debate”:
ADULTS RAISED IN SAME SEX FAMILIES SPEAK OF TRAUMA
(This will not be true of all cases, but this story is supported by others online)
“We don’t have childhoods,” said Dawn Stefanowicz, who grew up with two brothers in a chaotic world dominated by their gay father and his many lovers.
REMOVES CLEAR DEFINITION OF WHO CAN MARRY
The Marriage Act has given the foundational standard of marriage as the heart of raising families and for the stability and well-being of children and our nation – a standard that is for the benefit of every person in the nation.
Once marriage is changed from this vital broader foundation by an appeal based on individual choice or personal situation, it opens the way for further changes by appeal to suit many people’s ideas and choices. There are moves here and elsewhere to see marriage extended to include marriage to close relatives (even children), polygamy, and “beyond” these. (Australian Ethicist Peter Singer has suggested such).
The result would be to undermine and even trivialised the concept of marriage as something widely respected, calling for faithfulness and personal sacrifice and shaping future generations
REMOVES “MOTHER” AND “FATHER” FROM OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS
Public and Schools discussion and teaching must refer to “Male Parent”/ “Female Parent”
SURROGACY WILL DENY CHILDREN THEIR U.N. RIGHTS
To have a child produced by surrogate parents to be adopted to a same-sex couple denies natural right of children to be raised by both natural (birth) parents– recognised by the United Nations Rights for Children.
While such events happen as a result of divorce or death, should this injustice be done deliberately?
Should laws against commercial surrogacy now be overturned for same sex couples?
3.5% OF POPULATION IN AUSTRALIA ARE HOMOSEXUAL OR BI-SEXUAL (2014)
They are to be valued as Australians – BUT should their desires jeopardise our national freedom?
“RELATIONSHIP REGISTER” NEEDED FOR SAME SEX RELATIONSHIPS
Same sex relationships are legal, and such couples have a right for their committed relationships to be celebrated and officially registered.
HOMOSEXUAL ATTITUDES, BEHAVIOUR and AIMS (Quotes from Gay leader)
“Forget about marriage being for the children”
“That just means upholding the economic traditions of marriage which have historically oppressed women”
“Forget about being faithful”
“Conservatives want us all to accept … abandoning our ideas of sexual freedom..”
“Forget about it not leading to Polygamy”“That would be rejecting a perfectly valid way to form unions”
“Subverting the norms of marriage was always the gay agenda”
“For years now the more promiscuous in the queer community have been told that gays and lesbians need to access
marriage so we can “queer it up”
Quotes from Simon Copeland, former ACT convenor for the Greens, now columnist for “Star Observer” the leading
gay online newspaper (to Andrew Bolt – Herald Sun Mon 1June 2015)
HOMOSEXUAL PROMISCUITY/ CASUAL SEX: HIV at 20 year High (2014)
Indulgent homosexuals who frequent gay resorts or bathhouses can be involved in sexual orgies with 10 to 15 partners a night, resulting in more than 500 sexual partners a year.
A moderately active homosexual can average 30 to 50 different sexual partners a year.
“HIV rates at 20-year high, 1,235 new cases were diagnosed 2014 with unprotected sex between casual male partners seen as leading cause” Kirby Institute, Sydney
#SOCIALISM / SECULAR HUMANIST MOVEMENT
AIM: DESTROY WESTERN FREEDOM AND ESTABLISH A TOTALITARIAN STATE
“…toward the building of a world community .. a system of world law and order based upon transnational federal government.” http://americanhumanist.org/Humanism/Humanist_Manifesto_II
FIRST GOAL: UNDERMINE CHRISTIAN INFLUENCE AND FREEDOM
Silencing the Church was a priority to both Stalin and Hitler
SECOND GOAL: UNDERMINE FAMILY LIFE AND CULTURE (State raise children)
STRATEGIES: GAIN CONTROL OF KEY DOMAINS OF SOCIETY
Socialists now have control of Media, Education, Judiciary, Entertainment and administrative department using them to undermine traditional community and family standards, beliefs and culture
UNDERMINE CONCEPT OF ABSOLUTE TRUTH (Leading to “Post-Modern Era”)
“Truth is relative”, a matter of “What you believe” – Denial of Biblical Truth
They use lies to gain ground, and use “Political Correctness” to prevent debate of truth
ESTABLISH INDEPENDENT TRIBUNALS to Promote and Enforce EQUALITY for all in all situations, independent of beliefs and lifestyles. This is “the new morality” (replacing Christian morals). Equal Opportunity Tribunals are used to force compliance with this ne morality , punish discrimination (eg litigation against Christian organisations for maintaining Christian values.)
MOST OF THEIR GOALS ARE NOW COMPLETE:
Using these influences they have:
Used schools and universities to twist science and history to deny the existence of God (there is no evidence for atheism) and ignoring the unique evidence of the Christian contribution to the world.
Popularised atheism and undermined the vital place of the Church and faith in society
Undermined normal standards of morality, sexualised children, promoted homosexuality.
SAME SEX MARRIAGE LAWS: THE TIPPING POINT TO DESTROY OUR FREEDOM?
These laws give freedom to a few, but undermine the basis of inherited freedoms in nations.
In US and Canada serious religious and other freedoms have been lost to many citizens since the passing of SMM laws. Could Australian freedoms be at risk?
