Mar­riage a foun­da­tion

Augusta Margaret River Times - - News - Am­ber Pasco, Au­gusta

I am writ­ing this let­ter to plead with the pub­lic not to take the com­ing postal vote to change the def­i­ni­tion of mar­riage lightly, but to re­alise this is a very se­ri­ous and de­struc­tive path­way, which is not sim­ply to al­low gay peo­ple to be mar­ried, but will cause other is­sues that will af­fect fu­ture gen­er­a­tions and our chil­dren and grand­chil­dren.

As a demo­cratic so­ci­ety, we have the choice to do good or to do evil. God has given ev­ery­one a con­science and shown us the right way in his com­mand­ments.

It is not about love which gay peo­ple are pro­mot­ing.

No one is stop­ping them from liv­ing to­gether in a civil union if this is what they wish to do.

But to change the def­i­ni­tion of mar­riage between a man and a woman, they can­not do.

You have the sex industry and big al­co­hol com­pa­nies giv­ing sup­port to lob­by­ists try­ing to in­flu­ence the pub­lic to vote “yes”.

We need a sta­ble and strong foun­da­tion to raise our chil­dren and to teach them the val­ues and morals, so they too can pass on a godly legacy to their chil­dren.
