Just on the 'slippery slope' idea, if one type of marriage causes a slippery slope towards different sorts of marriage, then so does hetero marriage. Solution, no-one gets married.
Polygamy has also been around for 1000s of years, gay marriage is clearly not going to cause a slippery slope towards it since gay marriage has not been around for 1000s of year. It now points us back to hetero marriage being a slippery slope, or perhaps polygamy was a slippery slope towards hetero marriage.
Father - please don't be so naive as to think the Government won't have done extensive polling on this. Especially with respect to the Christian vote.
Even the Greens have said churches won't be forced to conduct marriages they feel are not in accordance with their beliefs. So unless a church feels theologically comfortable with marrying a same sex couple they don't have to. In the same way they don't have to marry a couple now if they don't feel comfortable doing it.
It's then exactly the same sort of marriage as a couple who choose to be married by a celebrant or in a registry office now.
I'm Christian and it's got my vote
God hates the sin not the sinner... But that's another story...
Also, treat others how you want to e treated.. So if you deny marriage to anyone, then why should you be allowed to marry?
