Yesterday the NSW Upper House voted to protect marriage. For the 9th time, the attempt by radical activists to redefine the meaning of marriage in Australia has failed. In a 21-19 vote against the bill, NSW has joined Tasmania and the Commonwealth parliament in rejecting attempts to redefine marriage. Furthermore, the High Court decision, due early December, is likely to declare ACT’s attempt to redefine marriage as invalid. This would likely settle the matter for good, protecting marriage from any future attacks via state or territory legislatures. This would make the 10th such time activists have been defeated. Keep up the effort to defend children’s birth-right to their mother and father.
David Cameron has admitted in a private meeting of senior Conservative constituency officials that he never expected [gay marriage] to cause such a furore.
In a brutally frank series of exchanges with activists behind closed doors at the party conference, he conceded it had been a political error to have forced the contentious legislation through Parliament.
