I have resided in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) for over 40 years and have serious concerns about the way the ACT Labor/Green Coalition government tried to impose same sex marriage legislation on the ACT community.
The ACT Chief Minister has stated on more than one occasion that most people in the ACT are in favour of same sex marriages. But we, the people, have never been asked whether or not we support this controversial legislation. Before the last ACT election, the outgoing Labor/Green Coalition had the ideal opportunity to hold a referendum on this issue in conjunction with that election. This would have resolved this issue one way or the other. So why did the Chief Minister not use that opportunity?
As a minority government, I do not believe the Labor/Green coalition was given a mandate by the people of the ACT to introduce same sex marriage legislation but they went ahead with the legislation anyway. Fortunately for the people of the ACT, the legislation was annulled by the High Court of Australia because the ACT Assembly has no authority to overrule Australian Federal Marriage Legislation.
On the day in September last year, when the Labor/Green Coalition unconstitutionally passed same sex marriage legislation by a majority of one (Green) vote, Minister Andrew Barr stated, and I quote “It marks an important step in our journey to become the most LGBTI city in Australia” unquote. Such a statement from a minister of the crown is incredible. Minister Barr has sworn to represent all the people of the ACT not just a minority group of sexually challenged people. The minister’s statement indicates that there may be a government agenda to flood the ACT with LGBTI people.
I have serious concerns about what an influx LGBTI people will have on the ACT community. I do not believe for one moment that by doing so, the ACT will become a better place to live. Nor do I believe that we will enjoy a more peaceful and harmonious community. I believe the community that an influx of LGBTI people will create will be divisive, volatile and more violent than it already is.
Also, NSW Health figures show a 24% jump in HIV infections for 2012; with 81% of the infections being acquired through homosexual sex. How will the ACT health system cope with an influx of possible HIV infected homosexuals?
However, it would appear that such an agenda is in progress with the introduction of “sexual orientations” into the ACT. I was astonished and offended to note that, on my latest medical health plan; I have been assigned a “sexual orientation.” I am offended because my heterosexuality is not an “orientation” it is biologically normal and natural. Nor was I consulted about this addition to my medical records.
Is this ACT Government policy? It would appear to be so because Minister Simon Corbell is now pushing for a third “sexual gender category” for the ACT. This Minister also intends to introduce legislation allowing sexually challenged people to change the sex on their birth certificates solely on the medical advice provided without the need to undertake sex reassignment surgery. This means that a person with fully functioning male sex organs, who dresses as a woman, may use public facilities designated for women simply because his birth certificate states he is female.
I am certain that the introduction of “sexual categories” and “sexual orientations” into the ACT will, in the longer term, divide and separate communities far worse than religious or cultural sectarianism ever did because it is being forced upon us undemocratically.
And, what about the human rights of children who will have the misfortune to be brought up in an unnatural sexual environment? Surely, children have the right to live with and be brought up by their biological parents whenever and wherever possible. If same sex marriage laws are enacted in Australia we will have a situation where children will be brought into this world to be, deliberately and with aforethought, deprived of one or both biological parents simply to become accessories for a group of sexually challenged people who believe that they are normal sexual beings.
Why have sexually challenged people been convinced that they are being discriminated against because they cannot “marry” a person of the same sex? The truth is sexually challenged people make a conscious decision not to marry a person of the opposite sex but instead, “choose” to cohabit and copulate with members of the same sex so, where is the discrimination?
The social engineers behind this controversial legislation are relying totally on indoctrination and propaganda to get their message across; that is, the use of meaningless words, phrases and slogans. I am sure that the politicians who support same sex marriage legislation are aware that the first casualties of propaganda are facts and truth.
Today more and more heterosexuals are living as our ancestors lived; that is co-habiting and raising their children without having a religious or civil marriage ceremony. Are these people being discriminated against or disadvantaged by the lack of a marriage certificate: of course not. Such a certificate is simply a tool used by government for population census and taxation purposes.
Also, under the provisions of Clause 3 to Article 16 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, these natural and fundamental family group units are entitled to protection by society and the state. The key word here is natural; that is, mum, dad and the kid’s. I do not believe that Article 16 was ever intended to include same sex partners because when the UN Declaration was promulgated in the late 1940’s, homosexual sex acts where criminal offences in most western countries.
It is an indisputable fact that human beings, like most other mammals on Planet Earth are biologically heterosexual by nature and design. It is also an indisputable fact that there is no genetic or biological requirement for one man to engage in sexual activity with another man or a woman to engage in sexual activity with another woman. Being consensual does not change the facts.
As there are no genetic or biological reasons for same sex copulation there can be no legitimate or valid legal reasons to enact legislation and enshrines in marriage, one man wedding, bedding and copulating with another man. The same applies for women.
From the very beginning, human beings have been forming long term sexual bonds with members of the opposite sex the way nature intended. These long term sexual bonds between a man and a woman are what modern marriage is based on. Simply because these long term sexual bonds have been ritualised and formalised by religious sects and ruling regimes does not change the facts or the truth relating to human biology.
Society will be better served by conducting in-depth research into this human phenomenon to determine the cause of perverted sexual relationships. It could then be determined why the sexual arousal” triggers” of sexually challenged people are malfunctioning. I state “malfunctioning” because it is not biologically normal or natural to form long term sexual bonds between members of the same sex.
Proper research would determine if homosexuality is caused by genetic errors or by a chemical imbalance within the brain (the human being’s largest sex organ). It could also be determined if is it caused by underlying dysfunctional psycho-social problems: in other words, is it a sexual/mental health problem. The result of proper research would, I believe, go a long way in solving the problems associated with homosexuality.
I will finish my comments by quoting from the introductory paragraph of an article entitled “Poisonous Ideas” written by Global Analyst J.R. Nyquist, which was published on 18 June 2010.
“Suppose you were tasked with bringing down a civilization, and your only weapon was language. Could you accomplish your goal? Quite clearly, the answer is yes. To defeat a civilization language suffices if it can be used to divide man from woman, parent from child, the owners of businesses from the employees, the state from the citizens and God from the church………”
I believe this is exactly what is happening in western society today and will be instrumental in bringing down our civilization.
I now ask that any Australians who read this post (whether for or against same sex marriage) to access Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbot’s web site, click on “Contact your PM” and request that the Federal Parliament hold a national referendum on this issue rather than the conscience vote that same sex marriage supporters are lobbying for. By doing so, this issue will then be resolved in a democratic manner by the people of Australia not through back door lobbying by sexually challenged people.
