Censorship 2

Freedom of speech and conscience are among the many cultural gifts of the Judeo-Christian worldview. They are foundations for scientific and cultural progress. Anything which threatens these gifts threatens us with regression.

Unfortunately, such threats are at work in discussing marriage. Previously, I noted how people have been faced with financial ruin simply for supporting natural marriage and how SBS, a publicly funded Australian TV channel censored an ad which encouraged people to broaden their thinking on redefining marriage. You can now add Channel 7 and 10 to the list of self appointed censors. Here’s the ad and what you can do about this.
Thanks to the efforts of many, another ad calling into question the claims of marriage “equality” has kept up the momentum in the meantime.

I’d encourage you to add your voice to this matter. If this is what they believe to be acceptable practice now*, what will be permissible if a redefinition occurs?
No need to theorise, just look at a culture further down that road: the UK, where you may be classed as extremist for saying that marriage is between a man and a woman.

It’s been said that “You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.” But if you already know, why wait for it to be taken?

*look here for some of the current rhetoric.


My thanks to my readers who alerted me to the above developments.
