Very well said Mr. Howard. Year after year we see valuable parliamentary time, political energy and millions of taxpayer dollars absolutely wasted on this destructive and divisive issue. It is time to say "Enough is enough!"
Year after year we see continued media forcefulness insisting that the people of Australia must accept the imposition of this unusual idea as now being on a par with and even more exalted than heterosexual unions. "Enough is enough!"
We see school children increasingly bullied in school yards across our once young and free nation just for supporting traditional marriage, and for not wholeheartedly embracing, affirming and promoting this radical idea, or for not flying the rainbow flag with the rest of the mob. "Enough is enough!"
This issue long ago stopped being about equality. There have already been over 80 pieces of legislation changed to ensure their is no inequality under the law. There already is equality. Changing marriage will not be the end of the issue. It is a political battle for our nation, for our children, for our institutions, not just for marriage. This mob of bullies will not stop at marriage.
It is time to start to focus on things which will help our nation, unite our nation, prosper our nation, advance our nation, economically and socially.
The ANZACS fought for a free nation. The LGBTI movement want to make it illegal for Australians to be able to speak freely and to believe openly. This is not a freedom promoting trade-off, it is the opposite, it spreads fear, it subjugates, it promotes tyranny and authoritarianism.
This movement is demanding their behaviour be recognized as normal and be affirmed by society, and in return they insist that Christians and Jews, and everyone else who disagree with them, must be persecuted for not doing so. They insist that our freedom of speech, religion and conscience be removed and replaced by LGBTI tyranny.
They insist that children must miss out on either a mother or a father so as to satisfy their selfish adult desires.
They insist that children must now be taught (the "Safe" Schools deception) that dangerous acts are now normal, fashionable, safe and encouraged. They cause children to suffer mental and physical abuse to advance their cause. They are leading impressionable youth to be seriously confused and to behave in ways contrary to mental and physical health.
Enough is enough Australia! Vote NO!
