Nationals rip into Australia Post days before marriage survey forms are sent. I have found through various discussions both on social media and other areas, that anyone who does not go with the new flow are immediately branded as bigots or being discriminatory. Often it seems as if this matter is simply about human rights and the removal of discrimination. Go forth and multiply, one cannot achieve this without both genders, therefore in the eyes of the Lord a marriage between two people of the same gender cannot do this without the help of the very gender they do not want to have a marriage with.

Why has marriage been instituted in every civilization in history? Rodney Croome said the 'yes' side of the debate should not assume it will win. We agree that the postal vote is a farce but it is here and we all need to vote. TO ALL those advocates of same sex-marriage, and again at the risk of being branded homophobic, I will be tendering a simple vote of no in this over the top attempt to make all people the same, regardless of orientation, religion, or anything else that minority groups wish to force upon the silent majority.
