In relation to the homosexual marriage issue, I believe that the word ‘gay’ is the most overused and abused word in the English language today. There are no ‘gays’ or ‘straights’ only heterosexuals and homosexuals.
Following New Zealand’s decision to introduce homosexual marriage legislation, the push is now on to introduce similar legislation in Australia. The fairest and most democratic means of resolving this controversial issue is to hold a national referendum in conjunction with the Federal election later this year. Because voting is compulsory in Australia, the result will clearly reflect the will of the Australian people. I am not however, going to hold my breath, because I have not heard one supporter of homosexual marriages lobby for such a referendum. This is quite odd because supporters of homosexual marriages claim that that the majority of Australian people are in favor of, or do not, oppose these marriages but, as yet, have not provided statistics to support that claim. Instead, they are directly lobbying sitting politicians whose only interest seems to be in retaining their seat on the gravy train that the public purse has become in Australia.
If homosexual marriage legislation is introduced into Australia, has anyone thought about the children who will be brought into a homosexual environment? Wherever possible, children should be brought by their biological parents; that is with heterosexual mums and dads. In homosexual marriages, children will be, deliberately and with aforethought, deprived of one, or both, biological parents. In my opinion, this will be an abuse of children’s human rights because they will have no say in the matter.
There is now a group in the USA calling themselves The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) whose aim is to abolish the age of consent laws in order to decriminalize adult sexual involvement with minors. For those who have not read the post by Reflections by Alessandra I have re-blogged it here. If NAMBLA succeed, this will take western society back to the days of the Roman Empire where homosexuals preferred youths between 12 and 20 years of age as sexual partners. Many hapless youths within this age group were sold into sexual slavery, sometimes by their own parents. Given the number of young women sold into sexual slavery each year, I am left wondering if young men are also meeting the same fate today. After all, where this a demand, that demand will bee met.
