Discussion in 'Four Corners' started by Mong, Mar 23, 2017.
Don't read the threads if dissenting opinions upset you so much, collateral.
How is "lolz" and the laughing emoticon even an opinion? It's just dumb jibberish from someone who wants attention, not discussion.
Whatever you claim it is it still upsets you.
Probs best you don't read these meanie threads about silly conservatives.
Are you alien in disguise?
Since the other thread is now locked can it be merged into this one as there were some great examples of bat shit crazy conservative thinking contained within.
Today is no different in that regard.
SSM certainly sets them off in a big way.
Apaz if SSM gets in we will have generations of confusion and pain. GENERATIONS !!!...
"Redefining marriage also means redefining our society, which means we have to form new guidelines by which everyone should live. 2% of the population wants to redefine our way of life and the other 98% just have to follow. Unfortunately our politicians just for popularity sake has gone the leftist way, and people through voting has shown their disgust, but they still not getting it. If we the people don't stand up now and say enough is enough we will have generations of confusion and pain"
Paranoia is also prevalent amongst them:
"There will be a lot of dirty tricks played at the time of the vote from Universities and other such places where the young collect. This happened in Ireland, and is how the result was engineered."
"I fear for the NO voters and their kids once the LBGTQI mob get their way and make the rules.. And so civilisation goes down the drain."
"Australia's children deserve better than this. A future PM will be apologising to the SSM generations for the abuse they were subjected to. "
"I'm afraid that the yes vote will win. And a tiny proportion of our population will clap loudly.
But wait until the 'hate speech' prosecutions start, and observe 1984 unfolding before our eyes. After SSM is legislated, the parliament will make any further criticism of a hate crime.
And once that hurdle has been leapt over, what next? Will criticising the government itself become 'hate speech'? Who's going to stop that happening?
And that's how democracy dies."
And of course we have the straight out strange:
" How on earth do you have consensual sex with someone you despise?"
Does our self appointed leftie basher who posts without mercy post over at Bolts blog?
"Im not scared to voice my views.. line up snowflake lefties......"
Another day another bunch of examples of bat shit crazy conservative thinking in all it's glory.
This one deserves it's own post..
"This is the scenario which I predict will be played out over the coming months. The SSM survey will result in a comfortable "Yes" vote. Legislation will be proposed which at best will be a narrow and limp protection only of clergy to refuse to marry same sex couples in their churches. It will offer no real protection to any other person of Christian or other conviction to act in accordance with their consciences and faith by refusing to cooperate in any aspect of same sex marriage, be they florists, reception houses, bakers or the like. Legal challenges will be mounted against even the exemption to churches, as has already occurred in England, which has previously introduced legislation supposedly protecting the rights of Christians to act in accordance with their conscience on this issue. Others will in due course seek to expand the definition of marriage to include polygamous marriages, under age marriages, or claim a right to marry the object of their affections whoever or whatever they may be. Those who express an opinion or attempt to act in opposition to the same sex dogma in any of its manifestations or extensions, then enshrined in law, will be either prosecuted by the State, face enormously expensive civil litigation or be hounded out of employment, aimed almost exclusively at the Christian church. Programmes like "Safe Schools" will rev up to teach gender theory and the normalcy of same sex unions, beyond the imaginings of ordinary people and again opposition to it, including the opposition of parents in either State or private schools, will become something which has to be whispered quietly for fear of ruin by litigation or social media assault.
This is not speculation, it is evident now from the public statements and actions of many of those supporting the amendment to the Marriage Act which will be pale by comparison with what will be said and done by the same people towards their opponents once the Act is amended in accordance with their wishes. Just look at what is happening now in England, Sweden, Canada and America.
If that is what the majority of Australians want, then that's what they will get by returning "Yes", and much more. Democracy has its virtues but even majority opinion on SSM should not triumph over the freedom to moral and religious conscience and the fundamental values of free speech. I have no confidence in our elected representatives being able to adequately protect those values, indeed many of those on the left of politics are enlivened by the desire to destroy them, especially when practiced by Christians."
Today its tough if you are a white conservative Christian in this country
"Again if your a white, straight, non muslim conservative no protections for you. Your stuffed."
Won't someone please think of poor oppressed whitey.. They are being all bullied and stuff..
The crazies are out in force in conservative land once again today.
Below is a brief sample:
"Ultimately I am ambivalent about allowing homosexuals to obtain a marriage certificate. However, what I am not ambivalent about is allowing a small group of anarchists to destroy our normal society by undermining religion and perpetration of a 'gender fluidity' agenda with the resultant (intended) persecution of 'straights'.
Vote No to 'gender fluidity' persecution."
Conservatives love freedom of speech, right?
"Maybe we lost our freedoms when we let the marxists have freedom of speech"
Although they do seem to worry about imaginary freedom of speech issues:
"The churches appear very reluctant to speak out, perhaps fearing more court cases initiated by the thugs who silence opposing views."
They also love a good old bit of scaremongering:
"If SSM gets up you will not be allowed to have a negative opinion about homosexual marriage , you will be hauled before courts , tribunals , and commissions to be condemned".
As always though there is one conservative nutter post that stands out above the others, today's example is, as always, entertaining to say the least. The bolded parts have not been added by me, the poster added them to emphasise the stupidity it seems:
"The problem is not with the concept of calling a union of two same sex persons a "marriage".
“Most LGBTIQ Australians favour same-sex marriage, they are as alarmed as anyone about bullying and hidden agendas.”
LGBTIQ Australians do not want to be used by left wing activists as a front for radical social change, such as “restrictions on free speech, and penalties for acting according to one’s beliefs about marriage or forced exposure of young children to radical sex education content without parental consent”
SSM activists will not stop their bullying tactics at simply enabling SS couples to get married! The problems arise when unintended consequences follow. Consequences such as pushes for “gender neutral” terminology and restrictions on the words “father”, “mother” – “male, female” - “man”, “woman” – “boy”, “girl” . The term “man hole”is now required to be called “access hole”.
The current levels of "indoctrination" of the captive audience in schools provide ample grounds for the serious concerns of parents as to where and how far the issue of SSM and sexuality in general is going.
The English Education department is wielding the big stick of Political Correctness over religious schools for not “ensuring a full understanding of fundamental British values”.
The exemptions for religious bodies to which the legalization of SSM were subject in England have been nullified by stealth.
The door will be wide open for opportunistic cash grabs by SSM activists setting up individuals and organizations whom they perceive are not “toeing the line”.
We have seen similar developments with the QUT 5 students who were put through hell by a precious Cindy Prior over a perceived trivial if not non-existent racial insult.
As a lecturer I learnt to "walk on eggs" after being dobbed in for an innocuous remark by a public servant struggling to justify his existence. My colleagues confirm that this is not unusual and that I had been fortunate to not have been dragged through courts!
Australians will be progressively gagged and bludgeoned into submission by huge legal costs, career destroying accusations and social ostracism"
They are certainly laying it on thick
Alien was a nuisance... but he held his position.... collateral doesn't know if he's Arthur or Martha most of the time.... Alien would have every reason to be offended by that remark....
Have I just bullied Alien too?
It's sweet that you guys can't go a post without mentioning me.
I'm #flattered that you guys get triggered by my opinions so easily and completely.
"If you don't want people telling you what you CAN'T do, then vote NO so we can tell the gays what they can't do"
this really is embarrassing to see the carry on from so called conservatives
the debate is over
gay marriage is inevitable and the battle is futile and worthless
Love the sig
Says the "I'm being bullied!!" sook.
you go right ahead and believe that if it makes you feel better princess.... lol
Will do, thanks KBW.
