An event beginning today demonstrates just how easy it is to subvert the wellbeing of a nation simply so that radical activist agendas can be promoted. This yet again involves the issue of homosexuality and shows how short-sighted, politically correct governments seem intent on destroying individuals and whole cultures.
Today is the first day of the three-day Federal Labor Conference. While there are many things these guys should be focusing on, such as the wellbeing of families, the economy, jobs, and so on, they will instead waste a lot of time promoting a radical social engineering agenda.
A debate and vote on same-sex marriage will dominate the weekend conference. All this is because Labor and the Greens are in bed together. Indeed, it appears that when Bob Brown tells Labor to jump, Julia Gillard asks, ‘how high?’
So Julia is doing Bob’s bidding once again, and it appears the numbers are there for the motion to go through. Of course the Green/Labor fixation on this matter does not reflect the rest of the country. A recent national poll on this found that only 14 per cent “strongly” wanted to change the Marriage Act to allow SSM.
A party which once prided itself in representing the ordinary worker is now a party fully taken captive to various radical minority interest groups and agendas. It is far more intent on pushing these dangerous social experiments than it is in representing everyday Australians.
As Paul Kelly has recently written, “The same-sex cause is a crusade now close to seizing Labor’s heart. At a time when Labor is weak on conviction, this is a remarkable event. It is an insight into the transformed values of Labor’s rank and file and how much its membership is pledged to cultural Left causes. Labor, it seems, wants to become a same-sex marriage party and is even prepared to humiliate Julia Gillard in this quest. The party seems ignorant of the public unease beneath unconvincing polls showing strong support for change or even the full import of what same-sex marriage actually means.”
He continues, “In essence this campaign shifts Labor as a political party into a post-Christian identity. It is a fundamental break from Labor’s social origins and values. This is how many Australians will interpret a vote for gay marriage. The party’s repudiation of the cultural and religious foundations of marriage will be an epic event in its history.
“It is noteworthy that only a few people will gain directly; that is, the number of gays who will marry. While this change matters deeply to those affected, rarely in Labor’s history has the party become so focused by a policy alternation that affects such small numbers. The real point, of course, is this is Labor’s new ideological cause.”
This new ideology “erects a libertarian construct of marriage and, once opposite-sex exclusivity is terminated, it opens the way for a variety of postmodern and cross-cultural constructs where marriage can encompass a range of sex options and people. That’s what ‘love without boundaries’ means.
“In this situation legal recognition of fatherhood and motherhood comes under assault because they constitute an obsolete view of marriage. This is now happening in a number of same-sex marriage nations. The new concept is parenthood. Its introduction is necessary and logical and flows from the legal recognition that children within marriage can have parents of the same sex and cannot be typecast by ideas of father and mother as such. Once this notion takes hold, how will the public react?
“In political terms, legalisation of same-sex marriage brings state and church into direct conflict. To try to solve this problem, Labor activists specify that changes to the Marriage Act will not impose an obligation on a minister of religion to solemnise any marriage. This is the escape clause and it is pivotal. It is designed to permit religious freedom to continue to exist in Australia. Only a fool would accept this at face value.”
This most certainly is a direct declaration of war against Christianity, and against a whole range of religious, ethnic and other traditions. It is a deliberate assault on the values and beliefs of most Australians, and another clear indication of the uber-radical libertarian and secular face of modern Labor.
Not everyone will lie down and allow this to occur however. Ordinary Australians from around the nation will descend upon Sydney tomorrow to voice their very strong disapproval of this betrayal of a Party and a nation. Numerous speakers will declare that heterosexual marriage is worth fighting for.
I was to have been one of those speakers, but I am otherwise engaged at the other end of the country. But there will be plenty of powerful voices discussing just how important this issue is, and why we must not submit to the jackboot of the radical activists and their stooges in the Labor Party.
One speaker is someone who should know. Walt Heyer is a former transsexual who speaks from experience on all this. He knows that contrary to media hype and the deliberate lies of the activists, gender really does matter, and males and females are clearly different.
He had to live the lies of the activists for many years, but now he has been set free from all this, and he tells the world the truth about this. His story needs to be heard. He will tell it tomorrow morning along with many others. But it is almost certain that the MSM will ignore all of it.
Since it is politically incorrect to say what Walt is saying, I am more than happy to spread his message far and wide. He has just penned an article on his struggles, and I here offer a small part of that important piece:
“The media calls the transsexual surgical procedure ‘sex change surgery,’ but the term is misleading because it is impossible to change anyone’s birth gender with cosmetic surgery and hormones. On paper, though, the change can be made with ease and in fact, that’s the only place where sex change occurs, on birth certificates and driver’s licenses.
“Unfortunately, many regret the gender change years after the surgery, but you would never learn that from the media. For years they have bombarded us with stories, infomercials really, that glamorise gender switching, while neglecting to report the high suicide attempt rate, suicide completion rates and high overall mortality that has occurred as a direct result of gender surgery.
“Their cover is now blown. There is tremendous pressure within America and other Western nations to give those in the LGBT community not only acceptance but elevated status and entitlement. The elevation of the same sex marriage issue to such prominence, in both media and politics, is perhaps the clearest current example of this. This elevated status does not help those struggling with their gender or sexuality at all, but rather it increases the problem and actually helps perpetuate gender and sexuality confusion in modern society.”
I encourage you to read his entire article. And I also encourage all of you to descend upon Martin Place in Sydney at 10am tomorrow and show that you care deeply about marriage and family and you will not stand by as the militant minorities seek to destroy it. I wish I could join you.
