THAT’S NO CATASTROPHE
BRUCE Bailey (Courier letter, July 14) needs to have a nice cup of tea and a good lie down if he really believes gay marriage is “the greatest catastrophe in Australian history”. I mean, really Bruce! Worse than the decimation of Aboriginal Australians and the Stolen Generation?
Worse than the systematic sexual abuse of children by the evil people who profess to follow your god?
Worse than its subsequent cover-up by church leaders?
Why on earth does it matter if two people who love each other want to publicly declare it at a rather quaint ceremony?
How does it affect your life or anyone else's?
What difference does it make to anything at all?
I should think the supporters of gay marriage (that's most Australians, Bruce) will be quietly relieved to learn that they won't be entering the Kingdom of Heaven.
Because the thought of spending eternity with bigots really doesn't bear thinking about. MARK SCHNEIDER, Waikiki the Kingdom of Heaven.
