Responding to the Marriage Survey result

rainbow_defend_freedoms.pngThe result of the marriage postal survey is in and nearly 40% of Australians voted NO to redefining marriage.

A great many more Australians also have concerns about the consequences for our cherished freedoms, such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of conscience.

Australian parents are worried about the LGBT agenda being proselytised through the abominable ‘safe schools’ program and parents being denied the right to have a say in what is being taught to our children.

I am very proud of the NO campaign and the role the Australian Conservatives played in it. At all times our team was respectful, factual and courageous in the face of a well-resourced opposition.

The fact that we made up so much ground during such a short voting period speaks volumes about the effectiveness of the campaign. Momentum is on our side and we now need to apply that skill, experience and expertise toward strengthening the conservative voice in coming elections. 

The conservative voice must be heard in every electorate across the country.

It’s worth noting that Australian Conservatives was the only political party to openly support marriage as it always has been. That means we are the only truly credible, values-based conservative option for the millions of people who share our principles.

Our task now is to ensure that we share the importance of standing true to those values within our parliament - and out there in the community. So, today's result is just the beginning.

Australian Conservatives will be striving to be an even stronger and more influential voice for common sense. We will continue to uphold the importance of stronger families, fostering free enterprise, limiting the reach of government and rebuilding civil society.

It is more important than ever that our movement becomes the first choice for the millions of people concerned about the direction of our country.

The battle to make our nation stronger, safer and even better has just begun.

If you haven’t yet done so I hope you’ll join us for the campaigns ahead.

    My soul is greatly stirred today. To think that those that are abhorrent in the eyes of God are now to be welcomed into God’s institution of marriage and to coerce us into viewing their acts as equal to the love of a man and woman. If my and my family’s freedoms and rights to free speech are encroached upon in the future due to these changes I will rather go to jail (after a good fight mind you) than submit to our morals and values being suppressed. Make no mistake if we dont rise together with the same gusto as the agenda driven left we will be truly pushed to the margins. I am also concerned about the reduction in the Australian white population. Every ad these days reflects an interacial couple. Or a white man in silly dress up portrayed as weak. Even our new Bonds ad has the white man out of focus in the background. There is no more time for political correctness on these issues. Our foes have no intention of holding back in working to bring Australia into a state of no return.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if the politicians were so keen to fix Australia’s real problems such as tax, jobs, cost of living, welfare etc as they are to grand stand this though
