This Week: Vote Likely in Federal Parliament to Legalise Same Sex "Marriage" in Australia

Gary Atkins

Tim Wilson, Trent Zimmerman and Trevor Evans are all homosexuals, and all are Liberal Party Federal MP's in
the House of Representatives of the Parliament of Australia.
It is reported that they will bring on a vote this coming week on a bill to legalise same sex "marriage" in Australia.


What I am wondering is, of the people who voted them in, how many knew at that time,
a. that they are homosexuals;
b. that they would be going to be involved in going against their party policy to bring on a vote for
a bill to legalise same sex "marriage" in Australia?
I am also wondering if, during their election campaigns, they told voters,
a. that they are homosexuals;
b. that they would be going to be involved in going against their party policy to bring on a vote for
a bill to legalise same sex "marriage" in Australia?
I am also wondering if, during their campaign for Liberal Party preselection, they told members of the Liberal Party,
a. that they are homosexuals;
b. that they would be going to be involved in going against their party policy to bring on a vote for
a bill to legalise same sex "marriage" in Australia?
.................................................................................................
Below are 2016 election results, with the first preference votes for each of these three Liberal MPs, and the
suburbs and localities in each of their electorates.
I hope that people in these localities, will, if they voted for any of these three MPs without being aware that,
a. that they are homosexuals;
b. that they would be going to be involved in going against their party policy to bring on a vote for
a bill to legalise same sex "marriage" in Australia?
make it known their disappointment that they have been deceived, and make it known that the Liberal Party has
received votes that were intended for bona fide Liberal Party candidates, the Liberal Party never having promoted as
campaign policy that it supported same sex "marriage" in Australia.
I also hope that people all over Australia who voted for a Liberal Party candidate in the 2016 election make it known their
disappointment that the Liberal Party has ineffective preselection methods, and that it has deceived voters through
endorsement of candidates who had the intention to deceive voters and the Liberal Party.

Why the Nordic prostitution model is a bad bad thing

http://www.ausfamily.org/

Top 12 reasons why a Biblical Christian must take a vigorous stand AGAINST the Nordic Model on prostitution:

1) The Nordic Model allows our daughters, mothers, sisters, nieces, wives and granddaughters to work as prostitutes. Anyone with a
Biblical Christian Worldview will protect women from working in such an immoral, unhealthy and dangerous profession.
2) The Nordic Model was implemented in New York and rescinded after it was found to only curb brothel visits by those men who may have been
embarrassed at being found out. In Australia there is not much shame in visiting a brothel anymore. Brothel shares are traded publicly and
they are even listed on the Australian Stock Exchange.
3) The Nordic Model has at its base a feminist, man-hating ideology, not a Christian ideology. Instead of protecting women it simply
punishes men - bad, bad men - nice, nice women.
4) It makes no sense from a lobbying perspective. Lobbying 101 demands that you ALWAYS ask for more than you expect to receive. Sadly the Nordic
Model is the end goal, even for the Christian lobbyists in Australia. It is simply not good enough for a Biblical Christian to
embrace the Nordic Model on prostitution. We must lift our vision.
5) A Christian with a Biblical Christian Worldview will vigorously withstand every aspect of prostitution as it is a pernicious trade in
human flesh and places all women at great risk. A Biblical Christian, especially Christian men who haven't forgotten that their hands have
been trained for war (Ps 144:1, Ps 18:34, 2 Sam 22:35), will take action to prohibit legislation that allows Aussie women and girls to
work in the prostitution industry.
6) Christians should be abolitionists, not regulationists when it comes to prostitution. Imagine Abraham Lincoln regulating the slave trade in
America's southern states instead of abolishing it? William Wilberforce, a hero of the Christian faith, was also an abolitionist when
dealing with slavery. Look what he accomplished in the UK. A Biblical Christian will support moves to abolish - not regulate - the sex-for-hire
industry, each and every aspect of it.
7) CS Lewis famously stated "Reach for the heavens and you get the earth thrown in, reach for the earth and you get neither." The Nordic Model is
demonstrably reaching for the earth and is a lame attempt at addressing this very serious problem. It has been fought against by Christian groups and
individuals in each and every country where it has been foolishly enacted. Remember it only punishes men who visit brothels.
8) The Nordic Model is most assuredly not a Christian model and makes no such claim. It is what its name implies, simply a
Nordic Model. A Biblical Christian should only accept a Biblical Christian model which would prohibit ALL forms of prostitution.
9) Moral absolutes are to be embraced by Biblical Christians. The Nordic Model on prostitution, as it allows our daughters to work as
prostitutes, is manifestly immoral and dangerously exposes them to physical and emotional harm, incurable STDs, potential violence, rampant drug use,
sex slavery, human trafficking gangs and organised crime.
10) In Christianity the good is the enemy of the better and the better is the enemy of the best. The Nordic Model simply proscribes an aspect of
prostitution whereas Christianity rejects every aspect of prostitution.
11) If we recognise that prostitution is a sin then the Nordic Model must be rejected out of hand by anyone with a Biblical Christian Worldview as it
legitimises women working in the unhealthy sex-for-sale prostitution industry. Have our Christian political activists groups invested so much
currency in the Nordic Model that they are embarrassed to be wrong?
12) Jesus said to the woman involved in illicit sex (John 8:11) "I don't condemn you, go and sin no more." This tells us that although we should never
"condemn" prostitutes, we should also never encourage them in their sin. Remember the Nordic Model legitimises prostitution by not proscribing it. Just as
the ridiculous homosexual sex registry does nothing to discourage homosexuals from their sin, the Nordic Model on prostitution does not
convict women that prostitution is sin, as Jesus would most assuredly have us do.

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
actual biology;
      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:
http://fava.org.au/safeschools
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
