Empowering young Australians to be a clear Christian voice
Last month MPs in both the government and opposition heavily criticised Senator Cory Bernardi for pointing out, quite reasonably, that if we change the age-old meaning of marriage from a “man-woman” union to “two people”, there will be calls for further changes.
Cory gave one example – the current calls for legal polygamy and polyamory. He went on to note that Australia recently awarded its highest honour to philosopher Peter Singer, who has defended bestiality. Cory could have added that the government-appointed Classification Board has approved an explicit bestiality film called “Donkey Love” for screening at film festivals in Sydney and Melbourne.
Malcolm Turnbull said Cory’s comments were “the worst sort of slippery slope argument”, extreme and hysterical.
But are they really?
Attitudes can and do change. John Stonestreet explores how here.
Cory is right not to back down from the essence of his argument.
We would do well to consider its merits, rather than dismissing his point as bigotry.
