Marriage equality is a lie

The pressure is mounting on Australia to follow Ireland's lead to legalise same sex marriage. Many claim we are one of the remaining countries stuck in the ice age of traditional marriage. We're a bunch of rednecks stuck in the past according to one caller on Neil Mitchell's 3AW program last week.

In actual fact, currently 19 countries worldwide have legalised same sex "marriage" while 177 have not.

Geez, the majority of countries must be anti-progressive, bigoted, homophobic, redneck haters! I mean, why would the majority of countries in the world seriously refuse marriage to two people who are in love? They want to be married just like everyone else...or do they?

Sydney Star Observer and former ACT convenor for the Greens, Simon Copland recently provided the following quotes in an opinion piece for the SBS.

"For years now the more promiscuous in the queer community have been told that gays and lesbians need to access marriage so we can 'queer it up'. The best way to break down these traditions, we've been told, is from the inside...
...The real marriage fight was never about homosexuality, but instead over the lifestyles conservatives find abhorrent...marriage equality is now inevitable. But the fight has only just begun."
Straight from the horse's mouth: what some gays and lesbians really want is not marriage equality, but the total destruction of marriage itself. The push for marriage equality is veiled in a false yet highly emotional notion of love, equal rights and tolerance. What it is under the surface is a sinister, calculated attempt to destroy the whole institution through hate, inequality and intolerance. 

Copland isn't the first to reveal the true motives behind marriage "equality". 

In a speech in 2012, author and LGBT activist Marsha Gessen admitted the marriage equality push was a lie. 

She publicly contradicted herself by saying homosexuals should have a right to marriage but that marriage should cease to exist. Which begs the obvious question, why argue for same sex marriage if you don't actually want marriage to exist? Specifically:

"It’s a no-brainer that (homosexual activists) should have the right to marry, but I also think equally that it’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist. … 
Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we are going to do with marriage when we get there — because we lie that the institution of marriage is not going to change, and that is a lie. 
The institution of marriage is going to change, and it should change. And again, I don’t think it should exist. And I don’t like taking part in creating fictions about my life. That’s sort of not what I had in mind when I came out thirty years ago." 
Gessen then provides validation to those who argue same sex marriage will be disastrous for children. 
'I have three kids who have five parents, more or less, and I don’t see why they shouldn’t have five parents legally… I met my new partner, and she had just had a baby, and that baby’s biological father is my brother, and my daughter’s biological father is a man who lives in Russia, and my adopted son also considers him his father. So the five parents break down into two groups of three… And really, I would like to live in a legal system that is capable of reflecting that reality, and I don’t think that’s compatible with the institution of marriage.”

No, it's not compatible with marriage and that is precisely why we shouldn't mess with marriage and our kids. 

Australia is on the verge of one of the greatest mistakes in social history. And it seems the blatant warnings are falling on deaf ears. 

All the best,
