Australia has just voted for this:
The barbarians have been given the keys to the nation.
Australia will come to rue this day.
It is telling that in just the last 24 hours the Prime Minister and a host of others have explicitly ruled out laws that will allow people to express the view that marriage is a union between a man and a woman.
The implication is clear: those who hold this view will not be able to express it in the near future.
This website and others will soon face the prospect of being unlawful.
I confidently predict that in my lifetime Christians will be jailed for holding Christian belief. I can also confidently predict that it won’t be the bishops. With few exceptions, we heard more from them about cutbacks to government funding for private schools than we did about marriage. Collectively, this lot have put money before morality.
They’ve lost the latter and it’s only a matter of time before they’ll lose the former unless they sign up to the church of the state. In the process, the catechism of the Catholic Church will be outlawed in this nation.
The persecution of Christian thought has been ongoing for sometime. However, the real pain is just about to begin.
But fight on we must.
We must do it to protect what little we have left for our children. More importantly, we must face seemingly insurmountable odds to provide an example of courage for our children.
They are going to face enormous difficulties. How can we possibly expect them to stand tall and fight hard in their hour of tremendous persecution if we could not do it ourselves in relatively benign circumstances?
So fight on we will.
The next legal battle will be on 5 and 6 December. The High Court will decide if one state’s anti-discrimination laws can be used against residents living in another state entirely.
We are only here because the highest profile anti-free speech activist in New South Wales complained about a post I wrote in Queensland condemning naked homosexual men who exposed themselves to children at the Toronto ‘Gay Pride’ Parade.
The New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Board decided that this complaint had merit. And every state except South Australia is supporting the case. It shows how far we’ve fallen already. It shows where we’re headed too.
I have been advised that I need upwards of $50,000 to cover the legal fees for this hearing. If you can chip in it would be most gratefully accepted. It will be an investment in your children’s future.
And you might pray for a miracle. We surely need one…
