Gay politi­cians’ bla­tant self- in­ter­est

Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

THE fed­eral Lib­er­als have at least four gay men push­ing their per­sonal agenda of a same- sex mar­riage vote in par­lia­ment against the will of the elec­torate and against a gov­ern­ment prom­ise to hold a vote of the peo­ple – a plebiscite.

These four dis­miss a prin­ci­pled ap­proach to de­ci­sion mak­ing on an is­sue that im­pacts a key foun­da­tion of so- ci­ety. They lack any back­bone to pros­e­cute an ar­gu­ment, won’t stand up to the LBGTIQ lob­by­ists and bul­lies, and they demon­strate a fla­grant con­flict of in­ter­est.

If these four men owned coal mines and were push­ing for changes to min­ing laws where they would re­ceive per­sonal gain, there would be na­tional out­rage, and rightly so.

Let’s stand up against the grow­ing ca­bal of self- in­ter­est driven politi­cians and drive them out of the par­lia­ment.

Let us care­fully seek out those who will fight for Aus­tralians and Aus­tralia, who put the na­tional in­ter­est first, not them­selves.
