Australian Parliament Continues Abandoning Its Christian Heritage

Forty-two years after adultery became legally acceptable as a result of the passing of the Family Law Act, the Australian
Parliament, on 7 December 2017, continued to abandon its Christian heritage, when it changed the definition of marriage by
substituting "a man and a woman" with "2 people".

The change reflected the results of the November postal vote, in which 62 per cent (nearly eight million) of participating
Australians voted to abandon its Christian heritage, and reject the teaching of the Bible in the matter
of marriage. Australia is now a divided nation. Nearly five million Australians voted against the change.
In the Senate, twelve senators voted gainst the change.
They were Concetta Fierravanti-Wells (Liberal, NSW) Matt Canavan (National, Qld) Eric Abetz (Liberal, Tas)
Slade Brockman (Liberal, WA) Barry O'Sullivan (National, Qld) John "Wacka" Williams (National, NSW)
Hellen Polley (Labor, Tas) Chris Ketter (Labor, Qld) Brian Burston (One Nation, Qld) Fraser Anning (One Nation, Qld)
Cory Bernardi (Australian Conservatives, SA) Lucy Gichuhi (Independent, SA).
In the House of Representatives, only four of one hundred and fifty members voted against the change:
Bob Katter (Katter's Australia Party, Kennedy, Qld) Keith Pitt (Nationals, Hinkler, Qld)
David Littleproud (Nationals, Maranoa, Qld) Russell Broadbent (Liberal, McMillan, Vic)

How Members of Parliament Voted on the bill to Change the Marriage Act by Substituting "a man and a woman", with "2 people".

As reported by AAP, the House of Representatives has not confirmed the number of MPs who voted yes or abstained, as this is "standard practice" when
there are fewer than five "no" votes, the bill is confirmed.
Four MPs voted against the bill: Bob Katter (Katter's Australia Party, Kennedy, Qld) Keith Pitt (Nationals, Hinkler, Qld)
David Littleproud (Nationals, Maranoa, Qld) Russell Broadbent (Liberal, McMillan, Vic)
Nine MPs were absent from the chamber and failed to support the bill. Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce, Tony Abbott, Andrew Hastie, Michael Sukkar,
Kevin Andrews, Scott Morrison, Alex Hawke, George Christensen and
Rick Wilson all abstained from the vote.
In the table below, the "% Yes" column is the percentage of voters in the electorate who voted Yes in the November postal vote.
The "How voted" column shows how each member voted on the question of the proposed substitution of "a man and a woman" with "two people".
Apart from the four members who voted NO, and the nine members who abstained, all members are attributted in this database with a YES vote,
on the assumption that they were present in the chamber at the time of the vote.
This includes the Speaker, Tony Smith, who was not required to exercise any casting vote.
The Parliamentary postal address for each member is:
PO Box 6022,
House of Representatives
Parliament House
Canberra ACT 2600
Each MP has a listing on the website https://www.aph.gov.au/Senators_and_Members/Members, which includes a map of
their electorate.

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

The heading above is the English translation of the Italian words in the banner in the photo.
Now that same-sex "marriage" is legal in Australia, a statement such as "Wrong even if it were made law" is out of date.
So to make it current, it would have to read "Wrong even it it has been made Law", which in Italian would be:

"Sbagliato, anche se e stato fatto legge"
