LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | Marriage-equality vote

FOR: The time of reckoning is here. We get the result of this offensive marriage-equality survey today. I’ve been hard at work on the campaign. I’m confident we’ll win. Then we’ll see how the vote we were promised goes. There are two weeks of sittings left in Parliament this year. We expect this bill to be put up but, of course, those who forced the survey will continue with their tactics – delay, deny, disrupt. It’s been clear what most have wanted for some time now. I’ve been invited to several celebrations and doubt if we’ll be disappointed. It’ll be a day a long time in the coming but, of course, it’s not the end of the battle. One more blue to come. And if Yes wins why should the No side dictate the terms? Politicians should listen to the people and just get on with it.

AGAINST: Loathe the perversion, not the person. The shadow of wretchedness stalks daily, so intensely the only option is to give in to this disorder that presented itself so early in history. Sodom and Gomorrah, two ill-fated cities cited in the Holy Scripture to have been destroyed by burning sulphur due to their sinfulness, most notable of which was men wanting to have sex with men. Still the perversion continued unabated. Worse than the perversion itself is the clamour for it to have equal footing. So cunning are the terms “marriage equality”, “freedom of choice”, “same-sex marriage”, “same love” even level-minded people are blinded. They are at odds with the biological differences between men and women. They usurp the throne nature preserved for procreation which they can never fulfil. Don’t hate those who push same-sex marriage, just detest their judgment. Strengthen the term marriage by standing our ground. Weather the storm of celebrities and politicians who think they can change universal order and care less about the consequences. Truth is greater than money or fame.

I checked out Ezekiel 16:49. “Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy.” I can’t see same-sex marriage, much less homosexuality, mentioned. – Ian Horner, Ed
