Resist change to marriage law

#1051 for broadcast on 2CH Sydney, 22 Mar 2015

The iconic gay fashion designers Dolce and Gabbana caused a stir this week, claiming children deserved to be raised by their mother and father wherever possible.

Australian Christian Lobby managing director Lyle Shelton said this highlighted the “adverse societal consequences” of changing the definition of marriage.

Mr Shelton said marriage law reform was a low order issue with voters, and denied social justice to children and to wedding providers who refused service to same sex couples.

“There is rightly no discrimination in Australian law against same-sex couples and there is no need to change the definition of marriage,” Mr Shelton said.

“The lack of tolerance of anyone who does not support same-sex marriage ideology is becoming an increasing threat to basic civil liberties,” he said.

A Greens motion in federal parliament this week called on politicians to support a conscience vote in support of same sex marriage.
