FamilyVoice Australia – Media Release – 14 July 2015

“A number of indicators suggest that more Australians are turning against Rodney Croome’s deceptive ‘marriage equality’ campaign,” FamilyVoice national research officer Ros Phillips said today.

“In Mr Croome’s home state of Tasmania, where the campaign has been waged relentlessly over several years, a new ReachTEL poll commissioned by The Examiner found that a minority of northern Tasmanians support same-sex marriage, and only a small percentage think it is important.  Liberal voters are at least 2:1 against same-sex marriage.”

Ros Phillips said another indicator of the nation’s change of heart is the big difference between the Crosby Textor poll of last August – where 72% of Australians said they backed “marriage equality” – and the Newspoll of June this year, where the figure had dropped to 58%.  “The trend is clearly down,” she said.

“Then there is the large volume of mail in support of natural marriage flooding the inboxes of federal MPs.  The Strewth column in today’s Australian noted that the Mamma Mia website published a ‘rogue’s gallery of the 10 people blocking marriage equality in Australia (all Coalition parliamentarians, apparently), complete with email addresses, last Monday.  By the end of the week the sole woman on the list, parliamentary secretary Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, was surprised by the volume of supportive emails coming her way…’

“It all suggests that Coalition MPs are right to back the natural man-woman meaning of marriage as a fundamental party policy,” Ros Phillips said.

    I strongly support marriage between a man and a woman at the exclusion of all others. A man shall leave his father and mother and be united to his wife and they two shall be one flesh. It is not an issue to be discussed that any other relationship can be called marriage, because it was almighty God who ordained marriage not man.
    It is therefore not an issue to be discussed by the community or the government, because Almighty God has made the ultimate decision.
    The letter to the Hebrews Ch.13 Verse 4, “Marriage is honourable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.”
    Marriage between a man and a woman Is likened to the oneness between Yhwh (GOD) and Christ, and between Christ and his church i.e they two shall become one as Christ Jesus is one with His Father.
    It has nothing to do with two men or two women because God himself calls those relationships an abomination, which will bring God’s judgement upon every nation that adopts such legislation that contradicts His Will in this matter.
    So I stand very strongly against changing the marriage act.

    Don Pitkin.
