Labor Party taken hostage by the far Left

Today the Labor Party has been completely taken hostage by the far-Left inner-city ideologues within the party. Labor’s repressive conference decision binds its parliamentary team into supporting a same-sex marriage bill from 2019.

Only eleven years ago both major parties overwhelmingly supported the amendment to the 1961 Marriage Act. Clearly endorsing the position that marriage was indeed a union of a man and a woman to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life.

“The total disconnect between Labor’s left factions and the broader community regarding such a foundational institution is staggering. Those Labor party members that value our cultural norms and traditions face an extraordinary dilemma due to the intolerance and hostility of those on the parties left,” says, Family First Queensland Federal Senate candidate, Mr Rod McGarvie

“It is a cruel ideology that would deny a party member a conscience vote on such an important issue. How could a policy that will deny a child the right to be raised by their biological mother and father not be a policy that requires a conscience vote.”

“This directive signals a grave danger faced by those who in religious conscience or otherwise do not wish to be compelled to participate in supporting gay marriage.  If the ALP would compel its elected members to vote against their conscience, what would they do in government to the ordinary citizen of conscience?  You need only look to Europe and the U.S.A. to see how quickly religious freedom and conscience will go out the window.”

G. K. Chesterton said, Don't ever take a fence down until you know the reason it was put up. “Sadly, it appears that many in the Labor party today have no awareness of the important role that marriage plays in establishment of strong families and in the nurturing of children. Labor needs to stop tearing down our traditions and rediscover why they were put there in the first place,” says Mr McGarvie
