Letter to The Editor - Tony Abbott is right to warn that if people fear them, they should vote ‘no’.

to THE AUSTRALIAN
     Peter van Onselen produces a few furphies himself in his defence of a ‘yes’ decision for the postal survey (‘”No” side offers a masterclass in debating techniques’, 23-24/9). First of all, slippery slopes really do exist. The ‘no’ lobby has produced convincing evidence that an apparently innocuous change to the law could lead to several undesirable results, including compulsory application of ‘radical and gender programs in schools’ and serious attacks on the free speech of traditionalists.
     Secondly, while a comparison of children of same-sex couples to ‘the Stolen Generations’ may be excessive, that does not dispel the argument that children do significantly better with their own biological parents in a firm marriage.
     Thirdly, a ‘yes’ victory may not mean that every ‘yes’ voter endorsed political correctness or Safe Schools, but it will certainly strengthen those trends; so Tony Abbott is right to warn that if people fear them, they should vote ‘no’.
     Finally, same-sex marriage isn’t just about alleged ‘equal rights and freedom’, it’s about giving to one small minority at the expense of other persons, especially children.

Letter to The Editor - Let’s not compound the error!

to THE AGE
     Peter Hartcher is right that the legal definition of marriage ‘has not stood since time immemorial’ (‘An Australian tradition we need to remember’, 23/9), but what has remained constant is the nature of marriage itself. Although it is not true of every individual person, in general human beings are monogamous, and rightly so, because that is the best and safest way for children to be successfully raised to maturity. That is what the churches and their biblical doctrine are defending.

     Australia does not have a ‘proud progressive tradition’ in this context. The increased number of divorces and separations, leaving children without one or both parents in the family home, that has occurred in recent years is not progress but retrogression, resulting partly from foolish legislation. Let’s not compound the error.

Same Sex Marriage: About More than Religious Freedom By Mrs Vera West

     John Howard has been copping it from the chattering class for saying that the same sex marriage debate encompasses issues of religious freedom: The Australian, September 19, 2017, p. 4.
     It is hard to see how the issue does not, since the issue has already  angered multicultural Australia, with Chinese Christian churches fearing that same sex marriage would open their children up to radical gender theory in schools, as well as ringing in legalised polygamy: as above. Religious leaders now say that once same sex marriage is legalised it will become illegal to preach that marriage is a sacred union between a man and a woman. After all, it will not be.
     At the base level, Christianity is under threat. It is an illusion to think that there can be some protection for religious freedoms when the entire point of this movement is to deconstruct the past. The debate brings out all the issues of centrism, identity politics and political correctness that have been with us since, well, when Adam met Eve, I mean, Steve.
     Are you out door knocking on this issue? If you are old, use your phone. If not, and it gets in, don’t complain. I will not listen to you.

The Meaning of the End of White Christianity By Peter West

     The issue of White Christians becoming a minority in America, Britain and Australia, among other places in the West, screams out for analysis. How did this happen? Basically, because of two trends. First, mass immigration of non-White people, who are predominantly non-Christian, and more significantly, a trend of secularisation, brought about by increasing materialism, affluence and leisure:
https://www.amren.com/news/2017/09/end-white-christian-america-will-mean/

     This is all problems, problems, problems, for our worldview. The displacement of Christianity, which provide the metaphysical foundation for Western civilisation, would have been beyond comprehension for most traditionalists, in the 1960s, yet it has happened. Likewise would be the creation of White minorities through mass immigration of non-Whites.

Dick Smith and the Reduce Immigration Write On By James Reed

     I have followed the media response to Dick Smith’s strategy dealing with immigration, which was to launch an attack on the growth economy. It has received almost no sympathetic response in the MSM: The Weekend Australian, September 16-17, 2017, p. 22. This is to be expected, since the MSM is pro-growth to the core.

     It has not been a wise use of money by Dick. The growth mad pro-immigration lobby accept none of his assumptions. They think that the more migrants that are brought in the more jobs are created. No matter about IT displacing jobs, migrants have so much magic that they can solve every problem.

Gays Against Gay Marriage? After “Yes,” the Apocalypse By Mrs Vera West

     Believe it or not, there are gays who oppose same sex marriage:

    The same sex vote has been pushed as merely doing the right thing for “equality,” just as the Aboriginal referendum is so pushed. But, there are less than hidden consequences, as the article above notes:

“This Marriage Bill seeks to enshrine Gender Theory into the Marriage Act. You may think there are two genders but actually, there are around 112.
Here are a few (list available at Tumblr):

The End of Free Speech By Charles Taylor

     In Europe, to protect the ethnics at the expense of native European populations, severe restrictions on free speech are imposed. While jihadists essentially are free to advocate what they desire, such as rape and genocide rhetoric, for Whites,  even “racist” memes now can land them in jail on terrorism charges, along with having copies of a book freely purchasable on amazon.com, according to this article: https://altright.com/2017/09/12/prisoners-of-conscience/.

     This shifts things to a new level, since the same things done by Left groups does not merit punishment. Hell, even rapists get off with a warning if you belong to the right ethno-racial group:

Letter to The Editor - Society Under Attack

Dear Reader,
This is interesting and shows you should never give up on your letter writing.
The following was sent to the Shepparton News on the 14th August 2017 and published today (13th September 2017) on the eve of the ‘postal ballot’.

To hear our Representatives trying to justify support for this issue whilst other important issues hurting their constituents are of little moment for them as they bicker and squabble among themselves worse than little children.
It is ‘adversarial politics’  at its worst as they try and confuse voters in their grab for Power. It is a very good reason to place the ‘sitting Member’ last next time you are required to vote.
In the meantime, voting negative in the plebiscite might keep the nasty wolf at bay a little longer.
Now it is up to you!

Attorney-General George Brandis will have the power to block legal action or appeal an injunction

     “It will be unlawful to vilify, intimidate or threaten to harm a person either because of views they hold on the survey or in relation to their religious conviction, sexual orientation, gender identity or intersex status,” a government spokesman said.
“That will be a sunset provision, it will only last for the period of the postal plebiscite.”

     The protections are similar to those already enacted in various state jurisdictions around Australia but do not currently exist at a Commonwealth level.
The laws, to be rushed through both chambers of Parliament by Thursday night, will apply to “conduct” during the campaign, which could include advertising, leaflet materials or behaviour.

Letter to The Editor - ALP Will Ignore Any ‘NO’ Victory

to THE AGE
     Your editorial (‘The survey’s on, so vote “yes” for justice’, 8/9) fails to consider the other parties whose interests are at stake in this plebiscite. Foremost among them are children. I am so grateful that I was raised in a family with a father and a mother, and I urge all Australians who have enjoyed similar good fortune to ask themselves whether they would really be happy to have been brought up instead by two men or two women?
As for Bill Shorten’s promise that the ALP, if elected to government, will ignore any ‘no’ victory, that suggests a bullying and fanatical attitude and tramples on democratic principle.

Letter to The Editor - Would that Really be in the Interests of Society and the Nation?

to THE AUSTRALIAN
     Alan Baker has touched on the most essential aspect of the marriage debate (8/9): ‘the importance of children being raised, wherever possible, by their biological mother and father.’ Every Australian who has had the good fortune to be so raised should think carefully about how a ‘yes’ vote might militate against this. It might also facilitate future legal action on the grounds of ‘discrimination’ against anyone expressing this view. Would that really be in the interests of society and the nation?

The Dirty Left By Mrs Vera West

     Here is just a sample of how the Left intends to fight the same sex marriage issue: with intimidation and personal threats: The Australian, September 4, 2017, p. 1.

     An Asian female GP appeared in the first TV advertisement for the No campaign. The response: the radical Left now have a petition to have her deregistered! It is exactly the same tactic now being used against Alt Right folk in the US.

How to Defeat the Same Sex Marriage Agenda: Multicultural Australia to the Rescue By Mrs Vera West

     We all know, as conservatives that a successful “Yes” vote in the coming plebiscite will involve as yet unknown erosions of freedoms, especially religious freedoms: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/inquirer/yes-side-in-marriage-debate-ignores-the-implications-for-freedoms/news-story/b119dbc7f7cad9f773f7f8ac7eef926d.

     Once same sex marriage is in, a fanatical politically correct Labor will push things to the next level, with a LGBTI taxpayer funded watch dog, like the present system for racial thought control, which will view any debate as hate speech. Laws will be changed to make race hate encompass LGBTI issues. Then, they will move to the next level, and the level after that, and on and on, until traditionalists are crushed under the boot. It reminds me of the scene from the old Spider-Man 1 movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAfxBXAQCZM.

Letter to The Editor - Pandora’s Boxes Should Not Be Opened

to THE AGE
     Catholic clergy who are defending traditional marriage are not, as Michelle Goldsmith implies (31/8), thereby making ‘unhelpfully inhumane pronouncements’. They are seeking to protect children, to safeguard society and to preserve a fundamental institution that has stood the test of time. Dianne Young is also mistaken (31/8) in applying the term ‘dresses’ to robes worn in many cultures around the world. In our culture ‘dresses’ at once connotes attire worn by girls and women.
     One senses that defenders of same-sex marriage are becoming a little desperate when such silly remarks are offered. The aggressive hysteria emanating from other ‘yes’ partisans strengthens this suspicion and is in line with the worrying ugliness of ‘Mardi Gras’ parades held in recent years. Tradition tells that evil genies are best kept in bottles and that Pandora’s boxes should not be opened. This may well apply to the marriage debate.
NJ, Belgrave, Vic

Letter to The Editor - A Bridge Too Far

to THE AUSTRALIAN
     The marriage debate is getting ugly, as Bill Shorten and others predicted it would, but the ugliness seems to be largely coming from fanatical ‘yes’ advocates. Vilification of defenders of traditional marriage appears to be widespread and intense (‘Pastors threatened after false claim’, 31/8) and corporate and professional bodies are misusing their status to the detriment of dissenting members (‘Law dean demands retreat on Yes vote’, 31/8).
     The unattractive nature of ‘Mardi Gras’ marches in recent years was a forewarning of this sort of behaviour. One is reminded of ancient advice about keeping evil genies bottled up and not opening Pandora’s boxes. The biblical saying ‘by their fruit shall ye know them’ is also relevant. If the plebiscite goes ahead, let us hope there will be sufficient Australians who see that ‘same sex marriage’ is a bridge too far.

Troubles in Transgender Paradise By A Boy Called Sue (Psss…It’s Uncle Len, in Disguise!)

     I have nothing against transgender people – some of my best friends are transgender. It means having blue hair, doesn’t it? There are lots of such ladies in the nursing home I visit, where I get to talk to them, and eat their scrap sandwiches, or is that sandwich scraps? Or, just scraps? I hope that I have got my facts right and are not making a fool of myself. But, then, using comas with precision, how would that be even possible?

     Well, some transgender folk in America have hearts that are not filled with the warmth and love for all humanity that I have:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rleFAS_B04 
    Consider transgender reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner, who, I was utterly amazed to learn, supports President Donald Trump. See, she is a good person, and all those internet jokes are just sick. Anyway, she said that Trump was “very much behind the LGBT community.” Truly amazing.

Letter to The Editor - Raising Children Securely to the Ultimate Benefit of Society

to THE AGE
     Alison Davies (28/8) wants to see same-sex marriage regarded as ‘normal’. Does she mean ‘average’ (the norm being the mean) or ‘right, true’? Only the latter could be applicable. Australia needs to get the answer right on this. Maggie Morgan (28/8) confuses equality before the law with ‘marriage equality’ and then claims that the plebiscite ‘is about equality and basic human rights.’ This doesn’t answer the concerns ‘no’ advocates have expressed about the interests of children and the interests of society. The plebiscite is actually about whether or not these interests trump those of same-sex attracted people. Maybe they do and sacred tradition is wise to insist that marriage should be viewed as the union of a man and a woman for the purpose of raising children securely to the ultimate benefit of society as a whole.
NJ, Belgrave, Vic

Letter to The Editor - Immediate Bipartisan Declaration

to THE AUSTRALIAN
     Coalition MPs such as George Brandis and Christopher Pyne, who are claiming (‘Religious rights threat in state laws’, 24/8) that the coming postal vote is about nothing else than ‘allowing gay couples to wed’, are doing further damage to their party by such an inaccurate, head-in-the-sand approach.
     Sufficient evidence has now come to light, both from overseas experience and analyses of Australian laws, to show that a ‘yes’ vote will lead to a serious diminution of religious freedom in the nation, unless very great care is taken beforehand to adjust and introduce legal protections for adherents of religions and other persons motivated by conscience.
     If the High Court allows the postal vote to proceed, there should be an immediate bipartisan declaration by the PM and Leader of the Opposition that, whatever the result, no change to our marriage law will be legislated until satisfactory protections are in place.

No political movement can exist in a moral vacuum, and Australians have traditionally accepted that it is the Christian Faith that generated our heritage of representative government. While the League maintains a small full-time staff primarily motivated by Christian service, it is the extensive network of volunteers from all walks of life who form the backbone of the Movement.

The League of Rights seeks to help create a body of dedicated men and women who serve not for their own material gain, but as custodians of those truths and values which must form the basis of all successful efforts to defeat the enemies of human dignity and freedom.

The League encourages and equips individuals to independently exercise their own initiative in the service of freedom.
