Protect Marriage in the ACT

ProtectMarriageinACT

The ACT’s Marriage Equality Bill 2013 introduced today would not only create legal problems, it would undermine the natural family and religious freedom.

Marriage is a valuable social institution geared towards parenting the next generation.  Promoting same-sex ‘marriage’ would eliminate the diversity present in a man-woman union.  Two men or two women with the best will in the world can’t provide the diversity and vital experience that a mother/father home provides.

Cases around the world also show that wherever marriage has been redefined, religious freedom has been under threat.

Last month, the New Mexico supreme court ruled that a Christian photographer who declined to photograph a same-sex ceremony had violated state law.  In the UK, a wealthy same-sex couple is planning to sue the Church of England for not providing them a church wedding.

Ivette Madrid of Equal Love Canberra pointed out on ABC radio (29/7/13) that her organisation disagreed with protections for religious freedom.

“The churches will be discriminating on the basis of gender and so I don’t think that should be allowed at all,” she said.

Redefining marriage would further erode the norms of marriage, and the common good.  The ACT government should consider carefully the grave consequences of passing this bill.
