THAT’S NO CATAS­TRO­PHE

Weekend Courier - - Opinion -

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.
