Supporters of same-sex “marriage” are showing their arrogance today as they begin to celebrate the win they expect tonight when the Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill is read for the third and final time in Parliament.
I can’t help but think of the story of the tortoise and the hare. The hare, so sure that he would win the race, got distracted and had a rest. Meanwhile, the tortoise steadily kept on going, faithful to the very end. It was not the cocky hare who won the race, but the tortoise, slow, steady and faithful.
The Bill may very well go through. If it does, it is because the politicians have been swayed by the gay lobby’s cry of “love” and “equality”. They will not have listened to the very valid arguments against the legalisation of same-sex “marriage”.
If, the Bill is not passed, it will be because Truth has prevailed, having been heard above the noise of the same-sex supporters.
No one should be so arrogant as to think that this is in the bag. This is the eleventh hour. Anything can happen yet.
Praying that this Marriage Amendment Bill does not go through. Marriage is the life-long, exclusive union of one man and one woman. This is the ideal that the traditional marriage movement proclaims. It is a beautiful ideal, and well worth defending.
