“As any tradie can tell you, marriage has always been a joining of two opposites. You cannot properly unite two of the same,” FamilyVoice research officer Ros Phillips said today.
“By definition, marriage is a complementary, male-female union. Only that union has the potential to create and raise children with both male and female role models.”
Ros Phillips said the new ACT Marriage Equality Same-Sex Bill, passed 7:8 yesterday does not make sense. “It is not ‘equality’ to disregard reality. A same-sex couple will always be different from an opposite sex couple,” she said.
“Let’s not confuse apprentice electricians, plumbers and carpenters in the ACT – lest the lights go out, the drains leak and the chairs collapse in the Legislative Assembly!”
We’re amazed that some journalists have taken our light-hearted comments so seriously – it seems that many have never done woodwork at school! http://news.com.au/lifestyle/gay-marriage/familyvoice-australia-sends-press-release-saying-gay-marriage-will-confuse-tradies/story-fnizhakg-1226746088149
But we hope they have now updated their knowledge of mortice joints and the like, and are ready to embrace the truth universally recognised until very recently – that in general kids do best with their natural married mum and a dad.If you haven’t liked our page, please do.
