I have said it repeatedly, but since it does not seem to be sinking in, I will keep saying it. If the bullying, intimidation, repression and assaults on traditional families and religious freedom are this bad now, just imagine how much worse they will be when homosexual “marriage” is legalised.
Every day we have crystal clear examples of the militant homosexual lobby’s war on faith, family and freedom. I have documented hundreds of cases of this already, and the new examples just keep on pouring in. Just in the past few days we have witnessed more shocking cases of rainbow activists and their war on everything.
Let me mention several recent cases of homosexual intolerance and bigotry that should send shivers down your spine. They are simply mind-boggling. The hatred and bullying on display here is simply shocking to behold. And it will get much worse if we allow the activists to redefine and destroy marriage.
Both have to do with television ads. The first case involves a completely harmless television ad for Father’s Day. The 30-second ad is a terrific reminder of this important day and the vital role fathers play on the life of their children. Yet the PC thought police have determined that this is somehow a “political” ad and must not be allowed to be shown.
Wow! The banned ad can be seen here. See for yourself what all the fuss is about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtkK_zDPJBE&sns=fb
Today the Australian wrote about this moonbattery:
A heart-tugging television commercial celebrating Father’s Day by promoting the special role of fathers in the lives of their children has been pulled after being deemed too “political” ahead of the government’s same-sex marriage postal ballot.
This year’s commercial – featuring a father singing his baby a lullaby – will not be broadcast after Free TV Australia, representing the free-to-air commercial networks, informed not-for-profit group Dads4Kids that its Father’s Day ads “likely contained political matter”.
After being told this week that its ad had been rejected, Dads4Kids released a statement to The Weekend Australian yesterday expressing its disappointment, as opponents and supporters of same-sex marriage defended the commercial.
Former prime minister Tony Abbott said the development was the latest example of how the “thought police” would operate in the “brave new world of same-sex marriage” while gay marriage advocate and Victorian Liberal MP Tim Wilson slammed the Free TV determination as “ridiculous advice that should be ignored”.
“If you don’t like being bullied by activists, vote no,” Mr Abbott told The Weekend Australian. “If you don’t like political correctness, vote no, because it’s the best way you have to stop it in its tracks.”
David Rowsome of the Canberra Declaration said this about the ban:
Every year it is our special joy to encourage the Canberra Declaration community to celebrate both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. This should not be surprising for the Canberra Declaration states that “Lifelong marriage between a man and a woman guarantees children their biological birthright to a mother and a father and has a proven track record of providing them with protection, education, welfare, support and nurture. No other arrangement has improved upon the benefits of marriage.”
In the face of all that is happening in the marriage debate, with aggressive moves to redefine marriage and silence debate, we believe that celebrating Father’s Day is very important. It is a wonderful way to affirm with the Canberra Declaration “the importance and social utility of marriage between a man and a woman and the families formed thereby.”
So now we are very excited to share with you this year’s Dads4Kids TV ad for Father’s Day. This is the latest in a highly acclaimed series of TV ads produced by Dads4Kids for Father’s Day and Mother’s Day. Twelve TV ads have been produced since 2002. Many are seen year-round on different TV stations across Australia. The ad for this year, which can be seen below, shows a number of fathers singing and engaging with their children, giving the story of life through a father’s song.
We hope that you enjoy this inspiring and heart-warming one-minute ad.
At 4 pm on Wednesday, Dads4Kids received some very disturbing news from a Free TV Australia body called Commercial Advice or CAD. The above TV ad, which had been approved by them seven days earlier, was now banned for broadcast. The reason given was that the ad was a “political statement”! But the bad news didn’t stop there. CAD went on to inform Dads4Kids that the three TV ads that have been going to air over the past year were also disallowed.
So now Father’s Day is deemed to be too dangerous and too political. Good grief. Just what is wrong with these people? But it keeps getting worse. Just a few days ago we had this frightening headline: “Activist pushes politically correct plan to rename Father’s Day ‘Special Person’s Day’”.
The story began: “An early childhood activist has been labelled ‘offensive’ after suggesting Father’s Day be renamed ‘Special Person’s Day’ so kids without dads wouldn’t feel left out. Dr Red Ruby Scarlet, an activist with a doctorate in early childhood studies, is pushing for the name change to the annual holiday.”
Madness! My second example is one I first wrote about yesterday but the fallout from it continues. It involves another 30-second TV ad, this time affirming natural marriage and warning about the consequences of radically changing what marriage has always been about. My piece on this is found here: https://billmuehlenberg.com/2017/09/01/three-brave-mothers-world/
But even in the past 24 hours things have gotten way out of hand with this. The ugly and vicious assaults on the three women who were featured in the ad have only gotten worse. One news report explains:
The mothers featured in the “No” campaign ad against same-sex marriage say they have been “demonised” for defending their rights. Heidi McIvor, who is a pastor at City Builders Church in Sale, Victoria appeared in the TV ad for Coalition for Marriage, which aired on Tuesday.
“Kids in year seven are being asked to role play being in a same-sex relationship,” Ms McIvor says in the ad. Ms McIvor’s comment has sparked a backlash, with Ms McIvor and her husband Julian McIvor also falsely accused of being behind a newspaper ad that appeared in The Gippsland Times and entitled “What is Marriage?”
The ad includes the line that: “When the wife’s egg is fertilised by the husband’s sperm in the marital act of love, a flash of light occurs and a baby is conceived. Nine months later, ‘their’ baby is born. It is not ‘hers’ and it is not ‘his’. They have created new life together.” One Facebook user of the couple said: “Let’s burn there (sic) church”.
And consider this Brown Shirt hatred and bullying of another mother featured in the ad – Dr Pansy Lai. There is actually now a campaign to have her deregistered as a doctor, all because she dares to stand for traditional marriage. I kid you not. Here is part of how this online petition reads:
This petition calls on the Australian Medical Association and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency to review the registration of Dr Pansy Lai as a Paediatric Medical Practitioner for violation of it’s code of ethics and violation of the Declaration of Geneva by her participation in the recent ‘no’ campaign against marriage equality in which she willfully spread misinformation and non-scientific evidence in order to promote the discrimination of LGBTIQ people in Australia….
We urge the Australian Medical Association and Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency to investigate Dr Pansy Lai’s use of her profession in a public political manner to cause harm due to the serious nature of the breach she has undertaken.
Um, excuse me: Lesbian activist Dr Kerryn Phelps, who was even once the President of the Australian Medical Association, has constantly used her position to push her pro-homosexual agenda in a “public political manner”. And the AMA just this past week came out saying they supported homosexual marriage.
So let me get this straight: any doctor and/or anyone associated with the AMA who pushes the homosexual agenda can freely do so, but anyone who dares to take a different point of view is somehow abusing their position and should be booted out? Really?
And plenty of doctors were livid about this stance by the AMA:
A former senior Australian Medical Association official has lashed out at the peak medical body’s campaign for same-sex marriage, accusing it of using false and misleading information in claiming the reform was a public health issue.
Dr Chris Middleton, a former president of the Tasmanian AMA, has joined with five AMA members in penning a 15-page report savaging the credibility of the national body’s Position Statement on Marriage Equality.
Dr Middleton, who was inducted in the AMA Roll of Fellows in 2011, renounced his life membership of the body and was critical of its process to adopt a position in favour of gay marriage, saying the membership was not consulted.
Things are so bad that one political leader said the abuse she is getting from the homosexual activists and their supporters is actually worse than the racism she has had to endure. As one article explains:
Liberal Party vice-president Karina Okotel says the “disturbing” bigotry she has faced for being against same-sex marriage is worse than any racist labels she endured because of her Sri Lankan background.
In a split with federal party president Nick Greiner on the same-sex marriage campaign, Ms Okotel will be advocating a No vote in the postal survey.
Ms Okotel rebuked Mr Greiner’s claim there were not broader implications to the vote such as freedom of religion and freedom of speech. She said she had been racially vilified for her skin colour but that discrimination paled in comparison to what is levelled at her when she argues that the Marriage Act should not be changed.
“I do from time to time experience discrimination on the basis of race,” she writes in The Australian today. “I have, for example, been refused service in shops and people have made derogatory comments about the colour of my skin.
“I have even been told to go back to my own country, which is difficult given that I was born in Australia. However, the discrimination and hate I have faced just by querying whether we should be legalising same-sex marriage has been like nothing I have experienced before.”
As I said, if all this abuse, hate, bigotry, vilification, bullying and intimidation is so bad right now, just imagine what things will be like if and when homosexual “marriage” is legalised. It will simply get far, far worse. All the more reason to stand strong and defend marriage while we still have the chance.
It is certainly possible that if we don’t, we may lose all our freedoms in this regard, and the ability to make any sort of “NO” case will forever be taken away from us.
Just moments ago on the Ch. Seven 6 o’clock news I saw a father’s day ad from Toyota. But…. Toyota is clearly involved in public political activism on the issue of homosexuality. See this ad from a few years back for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmjWfRS0q5I
And this homosexual magazine called Toyota a “Gay-Friendly Automaker”: https://gaywheels.com/gff/
Um, the Dads4Kids ad was pulled because it was alleged the group has a political agenda. So they cannot have ads, but Toyota can? Please explain Free TV Australia. Double standards much? Hypocrisy much?
