Empowering young Australians to be a clear Christian voice

Slipping down the slope

SlipperyslopeJust last week, Malcolm Turnbull said the slippery slope argument was the “weakest and worst sort of argument” used against same-sex “marriage”. (See Andrew Bolt’s rebuttal here.)

But the slippery slope is happening before our very eyes. Proof:

1. 21/5/12: The Greens declare “Our bill clearly states marriage ‘between TWO consenting adults’ and that is the Greens’ position. No, we don’t support polyamorous marriage.”

40 days later…

2. 30/6/12: Secret minutes of a meeting on June 30 allegedly revealed that the leadership of the Australian Young Greens party want to push for a public debate on polyamorous marriage, which allows people to have several wives or husbands (The Daily Telegraph).

Not a single Greens member has been able to explain to WA Liberal Senator Michaelia Cash why their party’s wish “to allow marriage regardless of sexuality or gender” does not include “marriage for all”.

The good news is, there is a better way, a way that will help counter the destructive consequences we are already suffering as the result of marriage breakdown. As Christians, we can witness to the beauty and truth of marriage and inspire others to do the same.

We need to go back to God’s truth about marriage. We need to aspire to excellent, virtuous marriages built on commitment and sacrifice. We need to be better prepared for marriage, not just weddings.

And we need to tell our friends what we know: that same-sex “marriage” is not going to be good for society! We cannot keep silent here – and we shouldn’t, because we know the good news about God’s design and his restorative plan offering hope to all.

    It never ceases to amaze me just how easily Christians find an excuse to harm their fellow man.
