Is it just me, or do you get the feeling that we’re being followed by the LGTBI lobby and its brigade of extreme activists?
As I logged into TMR the other week, an interesting little strip came across the top of my admin bar (not visible to the public). Needless to say, I didn’t put it there, didn’t ask for it to be put there – and have absolutely no idea how to remove it. I also have no clue as to when it will be removed by the folks at WordPress.
As for homosexual marriage, TMR’s position is simple: I couldn’t give less of a damn. In fact, you can go and marry your goat for all I care and call it whatever you want. Goodness knows I will. If two people want to call themselves ‘married’ and can find a church or other religious institution to sanction their ceremony, then they should go for it. In fact, go and set up the church of goat-love if you must.
Just think: if the government allowed this, it would facilitate:
- removing tax concessions given to religious institutions – which clearly don’t need them; and
- society giving the appropriate weight to marriages and the churches which sanction them.
Heterosexual and homosexual people could then go and get married to their hearts’ content, while goat lovers would probably still be frowned upon. Probably.
Why do we need the government’s involvement in sanctioning marriages? Is it really necessary?
The government should have no business whatsoever in sanctioning, endorsing or categorising people’s private relationships – heterosexual, homosexual or otherwise. Just call any relationship between two unrelated, adult human beings ‘statutory relationships’ and keep the rest as is when it comes to children, asset division… and carnal knowledge of animals being illegal.
From there, it should be left to churches and other religious institutions to sanction whatever marriages they choose – and for people to live their own lives as they please without the government getting in the way… or the LGTBI lobby rubbing everyone’s noses in its depraved Marxist agenda.
Of course, the odds of either of these things occurring is officially nil.

I too have a WordPress account which has the nag-nag-nag rainbow lines across the top.
I wonder if luvviedom/GetUp/Posh Left etc realise that their constant shrilling and cultural imperialism are killing their cause.
Spending much of my early life in Sydney’s inner east I couldn’t swing a cat without hitting someone gay or trannie. It’s never been anything to think about. When Yabsley went spruiking Ossie and Harriet values down Oxford Street for the ’88 election all we could do was laugh at the oddity of it all. (Not laughing any more, considering how his defeat kickstarted Clover.)
Nope, never had to think about it.
Now, however, I’m looking at that still unopened envelope…and I am thinking.
You’re far from the only one mate. The whole point of individual freedom has been completely hijacked by the Marxists in this debate. They don’t even seem to care in the slightest that they’re losing votes by the day with their behaviour.
I recently logged into Word Press while reading “The Conservative Treehouse,
and those very annoying rainbow lines appeared at the top of my screen, I was not
happy and did not want them there. I them looked into Word press and saw they were based in San Francisco, and thought maybe a little advertising for the “cause”.
It’s been up on my site now for a couple of weeks. Very interesting how it’s come up during the SSM campaign. I wonder is it’s only Australian accounts at the moment that are getting it?
Not sure what tax concessions you are talking about. Our church is completely funded by donations from the congregation with after tax money, there are no tax deductions, or money out of oldies pensions. We sell nothing but we do get g s t back on a bit of stuff that we buy. But that’s all.
Have a look at Quadrant online for a great article by Keith Windshuttle on SSM.
Thanks for the tip Brenda, I’ll give it a look.
Hi Brenda, check out the link provided. It states that religious institutions are income tax, FBT and GST exempt.
You are correct that removing tax concessions given to religious institutions is definitely long overdue. What is not correct is the attempt of the anarchistic left scum to redefine MARRIAGE as we know it and knew it for thousands of years. It is the usual action of the have nots. Instead of trying to be a have, they prefer to just bring the haves down to their level. Luckily this strategy has always failed so far.
I think that the only way to take back control over the definition of marriage is to leave it to the public – and not the government.
