Rainbow politics now reaching into every area of life

This week’s E-news is again focussed on the intense political battle going on in our nation for the rights of children which are now being contested by rainbow politics.

If you’ve been following the news you will have also seen there is confusion in the government over the timing of the people’s vote on marriage.

The controversial “Safe Schools” program, which teaches kids their gender can be what they want it to be, is being reviewed by the federal government.

In Victoria, premier Daniel Andrews is wanting to force this program on all high schools.

And if all this was not enough, news broke on the weekend of a gender and sex education program for toddlers in childcare centres to be rolled out nationally next month.

Children have a right, wherever possible, to their mother and father – something same-sex marriage makes impossible.

Children also have a right to a childhood without sexualised programs now mooted to start in childcare.

Meanwhile, Archbishop Julian Porteous remains before the Tasmanian Anti-Discrimination Commission. His crime? Distributing a booklet outlining basic Christian teaching on marriage.

All of this is very serious and is the reason why we must all work to preserve marriage in the up-coming people’s vote.

The same-sex marriage political agenda is reaching into every area of life. Sitting out of the political contest for ideas is not an option.

Finally, thankyou to everyone who prayed for my appearance on ABC1’s Q&A program last week. If felt encouraged and uplifted by your prayers. If you missed the program, you can view it online here

God bless,
