Dear ttbn,

The gays do not want more than what the straights
have. At present they do not have the legal right to
marry. It's about what the options are and who can access
them. Refusing to amend the Marriage Act is tantamount
to saying that gays are not worthy of the institution.
That's like saying that women should not have the right
to vote or blacks can't use the white toilets.
That's going back in time - like an embarrassing echo.
Marriage is a secular contract presided over by government.
It should be open to all consenting adults. Not just a
select few based on sexual orientation

The advantage for same sex marriage advocacy is that
we are able to take a neutral position on the moral
worth of voluntary intimate relationships and, by
extension, same-sex marriage, even if we have a
problem with same-sex marriage, we couldn't stand in
the way of someone's right to have one.
Live and let live.

I find it incongruous of some here, who without any experience or real examples choose to malign same sex couples for their courage in adopting children, whom in many instances were neglected by their biological heterosexual parent. Without exception these children now find themselves in a caring and loving family environment. and being given a real chance in life.
The comments of Christian fundo leader Lyle Shelton in trying to link gay parenthood to the 'safe schools' debate, and calling the children of same sex couples "the stolen generation" demonstrates how much this bible bashers thinking is perverted,.and how out of touch Shelton and those who agree with him really are.

Be very aware the SSM is not the end of this issue, it is ultimately about the denial of gender. Children will not have a mother and father, they will only have parents, who might not be the mother or the father. Beside the girl who is now a boy marrying a man now a woman changing parenting roles is also not to be discriminated against in any area of society. The safe schools programme gives voice to this supposed move to equality. It will become law and gender distinctions will be outlawed. Children could be denied any knowledge of their biological and gender heritage.

The 'safe' schools program was designed by deviants.

runner,
You wont be able to say this once all relationships become equal, you will be charged with discrimination. Freedom of expression will be curtailed.
