Yes or NO?
As of next week, Australians will begin receiving ballot papers inviting them to cast a vote on the possible redefinition of marriage. This vote is about much more than simply legalising same sex marriage. Please stop to consider what will follow if the definition of marriage is changed.
Let us preserve our children’s innocence!
In the last couple of years we have seen some very harmful programmes being introduced into our schools. Under the guise of inclusiveness, diversity and anti-bullying, our children are being exposed to radical sex education programmes such as “Safe Schools”. In countries where same sex marriage is legalised, programmes such as these have become mandatory for children as young as 5 years old. And parents have no say in the matter. Christians are called to vote NO to same sex marriage to preserve our children’s innocence!
Let us preserve freedom of belief!
If marriage is redefined, anybody expressing a traditional view of marriage, sexuality or gender will find themselves on the other side of the law. All Christians believe that God created us - male and female, and so do most non-religious Australians for that matter. Christians are called to vote Vote NO to preserve freedom of belief!
Let us preserve freedom of speech!
Freedom of speech is a fundamental democratic right. In Australia, the law states that marriage is the union of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others. In countries were homosexual marriage is legal, verbalising a position upholding traditional marriage is deemed offensive, discriminatory and punishable by law. Christians are called to vote NO to preserve freedom of speech!
As imperfect, sinful and undeserving of God’s grace as we are, let us earnestly ask the Lord for His mercy and guidance through these difficult times. Let us be mindful always of our own sinfulness, let us not be quick to judge, let us remember that Christ died and rose again for His entire creation – for us and for those who reject His divine order. May his mercy be upon us all, now and forever and to the ages of ages - AMEN
