The U.S. Alliance Defending Freedom this week warned that the goal of the radical homosexual movement is not merely the normalisation of same-sex marriage but the silencing of all dissent.
When marriage laws change to honor the unions of same-sex couples, every aspect of public law changes to match the new definition of marriage.
This is beginning to play out today in France. There have been calls for social media to censor messages that run counter to the French government’s decision to grant special rights to homosexuals and persons who are of one gender but claim to be of another. Dissenting comments on the subject of homosexual behavior are said to be punishable by law.
What we see happening in France could well happen here should an Australian State or Territory legalise same-sex “marriage.” This is why Australian church leaders have sought to speak up on this issue before their freedom of speech is restricted.
