Faith in hu­man­ity

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Westernopinion -

IT took decades for western na­tions, in­clud­ing Aus­tralia, to re­ject Judeachris­tian ide­olo­gies and ap­ply sec­u­lar­ism to achieve gen­der equal­ity, free­dom of speech, sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion, birth con­trol, abor­tion when it was badly needed, ac­cept­ing cou­ples liv­ing as part­ners and chil­dren born out of wed­lock, all as nor­mal.

We also ac­cepted all UN dec­la­ra­tion on hu­man rights only be­cause we re­jected the in­tol­er­ance and me­dieval dra­co­nian ide­olo­gies of re­li­gions.

For cen­turies, gays were abused, bashed, killed and de­nied ed­u­ca­tions and jobs. They had to hide, and some un­til death. Now the big­ots are ask­ing to at least give them the free­dom to dis­crim­i­nate against gays in some small ways on the pre­text of re­li­gious free­dom. Their God has al­ready spo­ken and al­lowed same sex mar­riage in nearly 25 coun­tries. It is in­evitable in Aus­tralia.

Believ­ers should take com­fort with the fact it’s not God that al­lowed it but hu­man­ity that did. For God to act ei­ther way, He has to ex­ist first. ALEX MULLA,
