Tim Wilson has dangerous ideas.
I say this even though Tim Wilson seems to have some idea about the damage that radical homosexual activism will wreak on freedom of thought and speech. The fact that Tim Wilson is homosexual himself and can still see this indicates that he possesses some modicum of logic and courage. It would be unjust not to give Wilson due credit for his efforts to protect free speech.
In particular, Wilson has been one of the few homosexuals to speak publicly against laws that led to the outrageous complaint lodged in Tasmania against the Archbishop of Hobart by a Greens candidate and transgender activist.
But Wilson’s ideas are still dangerous.
That’s because his ‘solutions’ to the problems presented by homosexual political activism are not solutions at all. Instead, they will only entrench the problems that he wishes to address. Worse, if Wilson’s ideas about marriage were to be enacted in legislation, as they may well be if he is endorsed as a Liberal Party candidate, then they would usher in Sharia law in Australia.
In June last year, Wilson wrote an article addressing the impact of homosexual marriage on freedom of religion and speech. He clearly identified that changes to laws would impact both, especially when they related to Christians. His solution is to legislate recognition of religious marriages as well. Every religious marriage. Including Islamic ones.
This is part of what he wrote:
The proposition is simple: we separate the civil and religious traditions of marriage, but treat them equally in law.
In practice it works along these lines. The Marriage Act would recognise civil marriages. A civil marriage is defined as a union between two people voluntarily entered into for life and can be solemnised by a licensed civil celebrant. The act will also recognise religious marriages in different religious traditions in a different section of the text.
And there, in a few short, simple and ‘tolerant’ sentences is a dangerous idea. An idea that will establish Sharia law in Australia.
In the same article, Wilson comments that this idea reflects the situation in Britain. Just so you know, there are 85 Sharia courts operating there.
It might seem bizarre, but gay marriage is the backdoor to Sharia law.
But when you consider the situation, it is not really that bizarre at all.
Homosexual activists and the Islamic community both have a vested interest in seeing Australian society bend to the will of radical minorities. You can bet your bottom dollar that if our laws are changed to recognise homosexual marriage then there will also follow shortly thereafter a call for legal acceptance of Islamic marriage.
Many homosexual activists have been calling for recognition of multiple partners as well. That is simply the next phase in the ‘marriage’ ‘debate’. This fits in perfectly with Islamic doctrine on polygamy.
And both communities have common ground on ideas about the age of consent. Homosexual activists have called for it to be lowered. The Islamic community believes that the most perfect man to ever live married a six year old.
It really should come as no surprise that a community that has derisively coined the term ‘breeders’ to describe women would pave the way for legal recognition of Islamic marriage, divorce, custody and succession law, all of which treats women as second-class citizens.
Unfortunately, Tim Wilson’s dangerous ideas do not just end at marriage.
Tim Wilson also supports the Safe Schools program.
Apparently, saying this is a ‘smear’. And, apparently, some people have been saying this in the lead up to the preselection battle for the Victorian seat of Goldstein, where Wilson is hoping to win endorsement as the Liberal Party candidate.
As such, today the media has gone into overdrive to shield Wilson from criticism. Apparently, Wilson is not a vocal supporter of Safe Schools, the media says.
I’ll let Wilson speak for himself.
And this is what he tweeted shortly after he launched Safe Schools in New South Wales:
Miss NSW Safe Schools Coalition launch last Thurs? Here’s my speech re uniting, not dividing, principles of program: https://t.co/6HLoaHvTVj
— Tim Wilson (@timwilsoncomau) August 4, 2014
At the launch of this program, Wilson also said this:
It is an immense pleasure to launch the national Safe Schools Coalition today.
Recently the nation-wide launch of the Safe Schools Coalition was held in Melbourne. The importance of this project was demonstrated by the bipartisan support it enjoyed at that launch. It was launched by the Coalition’s Parliamentary Secretary for Youth, Senator Scott Ryan, and Labor’s Leader in the Senate, Senator Penny Wong. Equally, while the program was initially funded under the former government, the funding was continued by the Abbott government in its most recent budget.
All of that sounds like Tim Wilson has been a public and vocal supporter of the Safe Schools program for a long time. I guess that’s why Wilson also included a case study explaining the importance of the Safe Schools program in a report he released last year in his role as the Freedom Commissioner of the Australian Human Rights Commission.
By the way, I’d like to thank Tim Wilson for pointing out an uncomfortable fact: Tony Abbott’s ‘conservative’ government supported and funded Safe Schools.
And now Wilson himself is being championed by conservatives. He is the new face of the conservative revolution inside the Liberal Party and has even received a reference from Senator Cory Bernardi.
I greatly respect Cory Bernardi who has shown enormous courage in defending Australia’s culture and civilisation. But when he’s backing people like Tim Wilson, it’s clear that the conservative revolution inside the Liberal Party has gone off the rails.
Tim Wilson has dangerous ideas. But it’s far more dangerous that they are being embraced by the conservative side of the Liberal Party.
And with ‘conservative’ friends like Tim Wilson, it should come as no surprise that the Liberal Party is now seeking to enter into preference deals with ‘enemies’ like the Greens.
No wonder so many real conservatives have left the Liberal Party to join the Australian Liberty Alliance.
