LETTER TO THE EDITOR:
IN the article headlined “Gippsland says ‘yes’” PollyannaR is quoted as saying that she would like to sit down with me and discuss the same-sex marriage issue.
Another person was quoted as saying the ‘no’ voters’ campaign was “built around half truths and whole lies ...”
PollyannaR also made the claim that the outcome of the survey had drawn attention to “a lot of out-dated policies and gender equality, transgender rights and all these things — this is just really just taking the lid off a can of worms that were made by old white men 100 years ago that aren’t relevant anymore”.
The fact is that marriage has been part of all societies since before nations were formed.
It has always been between a man and a woman joining together and using their gift of procreation to bring children into the world.
Societies, independent of each other, all accepted that marriage was between a man and a woman.
Now suddenly in the 21st century, our society has decided that they should be given the right to marry.
‘Yes’ campaigners often throws words like ‘homophobia’ around like confetti.
Unfortunately, the real meaning of marriage will be lost, to the detriment of society.
