Australian rainbow-haters have declared war on No voters

Australian rainbow-haters have declared war on No voters, by Miranda Devine.

WE KEEP hearing that the rainbow crusade for marriage was only about “love is love”, but the reaction on social media last week tells you that hatred played a part too.

Eat shit, Lyle” was trending on Twitter the day Liberal Senator Dean Smith’s same-sex marriage bill passed through Parliament.

Lyle is Lyle Shelton, head of the Australian Christian Lobby. …

Rob Stott, of online rag Junkee, boasted that his story showcasing the worst Shelton tweets was “doing more traffic than the actual story about marriage equality passing”.

Respect? Typical of PC it is only partially true, and only true for some:

“Australia has done it. What a day for love, for equality, for respect,” Malcolm Turnbull declared triumphantly.

Well, Lyle Shelton didn’t get a lot of respect on Thursday.

And by abusing the most effective spokesman for the No campaign, what the rainbow-haters are doing is declaring war on the four in 10 Australians who voted No. …

Finally, someone quoted in some media pointing out that the institution of marriage is for reproduction. The PC media, as they do on every topic, do not argue with points or facts they do not like — they just suppress them so they are not heard.

Probably the most formidable is the Maronite Bishop in Australia, Antoine Tarabay. …

Marriage is something we understand through the history of humanity (for) man and woman to procreate… This is the position of the Church today, tomorrow and forever. …

“Many of us in the No campaign have been (told) that we are bigots, that we have hatred…

“My message is that it’s time for reconciliation and unity, and this… cannot happen when we legislate not to respect the minority of people who have voted against the change in legislation.
