Four reasons it’s vital to keep marriage between one man and one woman only
Australian Family Association
Laws don’t operate in isolation. They work in combination with other laws.
Same-sex marriage law will operate in combination with Federal, state and territory anti-discrimination
laws that now list as protected attributes:
sexual orientation (straight, homosexual, lesbian, bisexual and transgender); and
gender identity (self-identified, gender-related identity, appearance or mannerisms without regard to
a person’s sex at birth). Over 60 so-called new genders have been “identified”; they are pure
inventions, but are protected in anti-discrimination laws.
The effect of same-sex marriage in combination with Federal, state and territory anti-discrimination laws will be:
Compulsory gay sex education: Same-sex marriage will make it legal to teach homosexual and lesbian
marriage and sexual practices in sex education classes in schools. This is already happening to a
limited extent in schools.
Then, if a teacher or schools objects, they will be accused violating protections for sexual
orientation/gender identity in anti-discrimination laws. At that point, teaching gay marriage will
effectively be made compulsory in schools.
It is the right of parents to determine when and how they teach their children about gay issues, not the
courts and not the school.
Changing birth certificates: There will be a concerted effort to replace “mother” and “father” with “parent 1” and
“parent 2” on birth certificates. “Mother” and “father” will become terms that discriminate against
homosexual and lesbian parents. The ACT legislature has already replaced “mother” and “father” with “parent 1”
and “parent 2” on birth certificates.
This denies the basic right of children to know from their birth certificate their biological mother and father.
No safe place for girls and women. Males identifying as females will be able to use female bathrooms,
change rooms and female only gyms. Already, young boys identifying as girls are demanding the use of girls’
toilets in schools.
Girls and women have the right to have their own toilets and change rooms and safe places.
Losing our democratic freedom of speech. Will it be considered discrimination to speak in favour of
man+woman marriage and natural family? Will it be discrimination to state the fact that research shows that
overwhelmingly boys wanting to transgender to be girls, or girls wanting to be boys, eventually grow out of
this and identify only with their biological sex by the time they are adults.
Australians cannot have a free democracy without freedom of speech.
It is important to keep marriage between a man and a woman:
to protect the rights of parents to determine the education of their children;
to protect the rights of children to have their birth certificate clearly name their biological mum and dad;
to maintain safe places for women and girls; and
to protect our democratic freedom of speech.

Radical Taxpayer-funded Program Promoting Homosexuality and Gender Confusion to
Children as Young as 11.
As reported in Coober Pedy News Special Edition no. 166, February 2016
There have been media reports last week about the controversial Safe Schools Coalition
Australia (SSCA) program.
It claims to be an "anti-bullying" program, but it is far from safe for all students.
Disturbingly, SSCA material (promoted in nearly 500 schools across Australia) teaches children:
to imagine (at age 11) that they are 16 and going out with a person of
the same sex that they are "really into";
to use toilets and change rooms based on the gender kids "feel" they are, regardless of their
that asking whether a newborn baby is a boy or a girl reinforces a "heteronormative worldview";
chest binding for girls who feel they are boys (despite potential injury);
penis tucking for boys who feel they are girls (despite potential injury);
to advocate for "same-sex marriage" (resulting in bullying of kids who support natural marriage).
It also provides misleading statistics, including the debunked claim that 10% of people
are same-sex attracted.
Our schools are meant to be places of safety and learning, not to promote dangerous, divisive and
age-inappropriate sexual content.
This program should be de-funded immediately.
In recent weeks, Jerome Appleby from the National Office of FamilyVoice Australia,
a Christian voice for family, faith and freedom, was able to present open letters against
the program, signed by more than 14,000 Australians, to then Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss.
FamilyVoice Australia wants to ensure the removal of this dangerous program from all state and
territory education systems.
You can help stop the Safe Schools program by contacting your local
state or territory MPs, via this website:
whereby you can send your message to all of them.
Don't Be Fooled: this is what the SAFE SCHOOLS program is REALLY about
Wrong even if it were made Law
