Instead, principal Jeff Lyon revealed, the school would celebrate UN International Day of Families. “I believe celebrating International Day of Families is a more inclusive way of celebrating the richness, diversity and complexity of living and loving as a family in the modern world,” Mr Lyon wrote. “The day highlights the importance of all caregivers in families, be it parents, grandparents or siblings and the importance of parental education for the welfare of children.”
These words are obviously code for “I am pro Same Sex Marriage” and we should not highlight the shortcomings of SSM. Oh yes we should.
The problem with SSM is that two people of the same sex cannot conceive a child organically. For a SS couple to have a child then one of them will have had to go outside their relationship to conceive that child. This of course would break the marriage vows of “to the exclusion of all others.”
If a SS couple has done this and they are raising a child, then they have made a deliberate decision from the outset of that child’s life that the child will either be without a mother or father, and this is the problem that SS relationships create. Yet they don’t want to be confronted with this shortcoming. They don’t want their sins highlighted. They want their sins accepted and atoned for by state sanctioned same-sex marriage.
I don’t believe that children should be deliberately brought in to this world excluding from them their natural mother or father. While people are not perfect and children are often conceived and then one of the parents (usually the father) does a runner or is not committed to the other and goes their separate way, at least they did not deliberately set out to bring a child in to the world without one or other of their natural parents.
Great that Bill Shorten has stepped in and managed to reverse Principal Lyon’s decision. However, if that is what Principal Lyon believes then I think other beliefs of Mr Lyon need to be divulged and perhaps he needs standing down as unfit for being a principal of an Australian school.
We shouldn’t leave it at that though. We need to address the reason for the decision and that is a perverted ideology. Shorten won’t go that far though as he is a progressive and is in favour of SSM. But now Shorten has really exposed the fruit and consequences of his beliefs and ideology. He is without excuse.
