Gay Marriage?? What a brilliant flag to fly under! It has tradition (using ‘marriage’), emotion (using ‘gay’) and gay pride, all wrapped up in a rainbow coloured joy, peace and freedom themed package. Who could argue against it? It’s magnificent! Gay marriage is so much better than homosexual marriage, diverse marriage or even just ‘marriage’; it would serve as one of many tools to bring the homosexualisation of our culture. It was and is brilliant! (And no sarcasm is intended!!)
‘Gay Marriage’ Does Not Stand Alone
Also, very clever, was the creation of Marriage Equality Australia (a brilliantly named enterprise) and the selection of Alex Greenwich to be front man for the organisation. I can imagine the team of stylishly dressed marketers giving each other high fives around the whiteboards and lattes as they realised they had the perfect package. The name, a close to perfect front man and favourably phrased cause. This was a culturally sellable revolution.
Yet marriage requires incredible willingness to sacrifice and put another before yourself. But gay marriage is all about selfishness and making the world revolve around homosexual desires. With this in mind, I found humorous irony in Alex’s surname: Greenwich (in the UK) is the epicenter of global time measurement. All time zones are measured by an hour count plus or minus their time. Greenwich is the center of the world as far as time is concerned, just as the gay marriage revolution seeks to place itself at the center of world revolution. framework.
Gay Marriage Changes a Nation Legally and Philosophically
Everything that flows from marriage is in some measure foundational to the guardianship and health of society. Alex’s job is to ensure the population does not realize just how much gay marriage will change this guardianship and society as a whole.
The claims seem reasonable, but were they to be openly and honestly debated, examined and tested, they would be shown lacking. For this reason, the Australian people are not permitted an effective voice or an honest debate.
History has shown that voters reject this notion when given the right to vote. When a vote is called on such a significant issue, honest analysis becomes expected and a loud and loving “No. No way!” vote ensues. Marriage stays man and woman to the exclusion of all others. To the best of my knowledge (and I am open to correction), every nation that gave THE PEOPLE the vote on this issue saw this agenda defeated [*1]. Only in nations where judges and politicians have been manoeuvred or a legal argument utilised has this change come in.
For this reason, the gay marriage machinery will never seek a legitimate people’s voice. They will run lots of cleverly worded polls to elicit the results and reports they need. They will seek to give the appearance of popular support, but at the same time ensure no-one is actually permitted to honestly discuss it or becomes properly informed so they can give an honest and valid opinion. At the risk of repetition, I’ll say it slightly differently – because it is an important point.
The homosexual activist movement will not push for a plebiscite or constitutional amendment on the issue, because in such a case open debate would not only be possible, but would be expected. When honest debate and evaluation takes place, their cause is lost. Instead of honest societal change, we instead see different tactics at work under the covers:Impressive marketing,
- Carefully crafted messages,
- Charming and charismatic people (like Alex),
- A supportive media,
- Supportive educational leadership,
- Supportive political masters,
- Supportive legal decision makers,
- Supportive (and theologically hazy) ambassadors with religious titles, and
- A population hushed with bullying tactics of name-calling and shout-downs.
But the evidence of other nations is that once you’ve been sold on the easy to swallow parts, the nasty after-taste become evident. The world turns and time has its way. What comes over the horizon is not gay marriage at all. History will look back and judge him and other current ‘heroes’ with probable disdain. They will ask the rest of us, “Were you asleep?!?” The answer will be, for most of us, “Yes, we were.” A Sexually Diverse Nation Serves Only the New Elite
‘Gay Marriage’ Needs Your Challenge
I maintain that gay marriage as a cause needs to be seriously tested before being woven into our cultural field of play. May we please look beyond the childish tactics that reign now, where ad hominem character assassination, bigoted blindness and intolerance are abundantly evidenced on all sides.
Can we please measure the weight and substance of the arguments without employing all the emotional manipulation currently at play?“
Gay Marriage” is a crafty, manipulative and effective phrase. Powered by big dollars, thousands of volunteer and paid hours, a well-weighted media as well as extreme professionalism. Ever stopped and wondered why? This movement is as slick and crafty as any political movement I have seen in my lifetime. It is brilliantly named, embraces all who will serve, preaches doctrines with the strategy, propaganda and passion of Goering and skilfully wields a self-seeking and abundant array of weaponry.
The activists that propel gay marriage are good! Or more accurately, they’re good at what they do! Except for the occasional typo in a hurried email or the blathering evasions that tumble from Alex’s mouth when cornered on the issue of childhood impact, Gay Marriage is a model example of social campaigning at its best. But wake up Australia. All is not as it seems.
Marriage has to be Discriminatory so Grow Up and Get Over It
A few months back, someone reminded me that with my background and lingering issues, I should be playing for the other team. It’s a fair comment. But I realised decades ago that life is unfair to everyone; only the measure varies. I am tired of hearing the whining cries of babies in adult bodies – whether straight or gay – who want everything fixed and everything to go their way. “Boo Hoo! (Sniffle, Blow)”.
Get over it. Grow up. Our first loyalty and responsibility is to the innocent and the vulnerable! Gay marriage does not do that. We adults who have homosexual, bisexual or other sexually diverse expressions should be the first to protect children not the last. We walk in the legacy of childhoods impaired. So man up and get over it. The world isn’t fair for anybody. We shouldn’t be making it even harder for the new kids coming through. Yet, that is exactly what gay marriage will ultimately do.
- Since this article was posted, Ireland has changed by vote. It needs to be stated though that a great many people did not take part in the election, and there was a reported general sense that the vote would be defeated.
