Empowering young Australians to be a clear Christian voice

“Stairway up”, not slippery slope down

Remember the article in The Australian last year proclaiming “Three in marriage bed more of a good thing”?

Poly leader John Ince is up front about it:

Gay history shows that liberation comes in steps.  First gay relationships had to be accepted as legitimate and non-criminal. Once that occured then gay marriage followed. I think our normalization will follow the same course.” – Vancouver, 2011

Other writers such as Vivienne Chen simply confirm that these are not isolated sentiments:


Chen goes on to say: “If you accept the framing of civil rights and social acceptance as a slippery slope down, you’ve lost the debate before you open your mouth. Slipping on a slope is a painful accident that leads downward. Instead, reframe it as a stairway up. Each step is a deliberate, effortful, carefully chosen advance toward a more humane, just, enlightened world.”

This “more humane, just, enlightened world”, unfortunately, means the demise of the nuclear family – an institution that has served humanity well since the dawn of civilisation.

We talk about why we need the family here.
