2016 was a big year for the marriage debate in Australia.
Malcolm Turnbull took the Marriage Plebiscite to the Federal election and won – only to have the people’s vote quashed by the political elite who then conspired to waste more Parliamentary time with yet another Senate enquiry into marriage.
The fury over Safe Schools escalated, as more parents were made aware of the secretive program, teaching their children that gender is fluid. A book called ‘The Gender Fairy’ taught toddlers that “Only you know whether you are a boy or a girl. No one can tell you”.
And Early Childhood Australia Spokeswoman, Clare McHugh delivered the highly disturbing claim that “Children are sexual beings.”
With attitudes like this at the forefront of Government funded education, it should come as no surprise that children as young as 15 are undergoing major surgery to remove their sexual organs.
To finish the year, South Australian Parliament passed the gender-identity bill, allowing a person to change their ‘sex’ on their birth certificate without the need to undergo sex-change surgery or hormone treatment. This move renders Birth Certificates as nothing more than a fanciful declaration of ‘feelings’ rather than a statement of biological fact. As we’ve seen in places like Ontario, where genderless marriage is legal, children have no right to know their biological parents as they can be omitted from a child’s birth certificate at the whim of the people who happen to be around at the time of birth.
Degendering society will have long term consequences. Marriage is the cornerstone of our society and as such, it needs to be protected. It, like our Birth Certificate, is a statement of biological fact: Founding a family with one biological father and one biological mother for life, as nature intended it.
For that reason, the Australian Marriage Forum is looking forward to the year ahead with renewed focus and renewed confidence.
We know that the Australian public is smart enough to see through the fancy sloganeering of the SSM activists. Fair-minded Aussies quietly watch on as these LGBTQ elitists attempt to shut down earnest debate by refusing to print our books, by forcing us to meet in secret, by refusing to air our ads and by calling us hateful names.
Never underestimate Aussies. In 2017 it’s more important than ever for all of us to stand united in support of marriage and family, for the sake of generations of Aussies to come. Together, we CAN save marriage.Share
