“We welcome last Thursday’s Federal Court ruling by Justice Jayne Jagot that banning same-sex marriage does not amount to discrimination,” FamilyVoice national research officer Ros Phillips said today.
Justice Jagot pointed out that in all cases the treatment of the person of the opposite sex is the same: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-02-22/same-sex-marriage-ban-challenge-tossed-by-australia-judge.html
Ros Phillips said the Federal Court ruling is common sense. It effectively acknowledges that the gay activist slogan Marriage Equality is false and misleading.
“Equality involves treating the same things equally,” Mrs Phillips said. “Treating different things differently is not discrimination. Potentially fertile male-female unions and naturally sterile same-sex unions are not equivalent. Treating them differently is recognising reality.”
Ros Phillips said marriage is about more than love – it is about conceiving, bearing and raising the next generation with both mum and dad role models.
