This weekend, the combined forces of those institutions who run outfits for humans who subscribe to imagined supernatural beings, a.k.a. the churches, are calling for their followers to diss any thoughts or convictions of equality amongst human beings, by asking them to reject proposed changes to the Marriage Act that would see humans be allowed to be married to other humans irrespective of the makeup of their genitals.
LEADERS of Sydney’s major Christian churches will make a coordinated appeal against same-sex marriage straight from the pulpit this weekend in a bid to rally opposition before the federal parliamentary vote.
Statements from Anglican, Catholic and Greek Orthodox church leaders will be read out or distributed at services, stressing the need to head off any change to the current definition of marriage.
Christian clergy like to refer to their followers as their “flock”. I would be interested to see if those who consider themselves Christians, but also have managed to maintain some kind of conscience or humanity, will stand idly by while those hatemongerers spew forth their message of intolerance and homophobia from the pulpit this weekend. I have to say that I am not holding my breath. The Christian track record of standing up to bigoted clergy and their anti-human dogma is not exactly brilliant.
