Marriage is about biology, not bigotry

For broadcast on 2CH Sydney, 12 May 2013

Last weekend’s Tasmanian Upper House elections delivered decisive victories for candidates who supported an understanding of marriage based on our Australian culture and heritage, despite a well-funded and aggressive campaign deflecting attention away from the issues that really mattered to voters and toward the tired old subject of homosexual marriage.

The Tasmanian results show that true marriage is a clear vote-winner, and that most Australians understand that marriage is biology, not bigotry.

Australians generally vote on health, education, law and order, and economic productivity – not on changes to the definition of marriage, or introducing euthanasia.

We’re tired of seeing parliament weighed down by debate on issues that have been thoroughly debated and rejected. ¬†Australians want to move on, and it’s good to hear federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott rule out another vote on same sex marriage laws in the life of the next Parliament should the Coalition win the September 14 election.

I’m Rod Benson for the NSW Council of Churches.
