Australian Christian Lobby claims equal marriage will lead to ‘radical gay sex education’ in schools

The Australian Christian Lobby has claimed that if the country allows same-sex weddings, schools will enforce “radical gay sex education”.
Next month Australians will be asked to vote on whether same-sex couples deserve the right to marriage, in a controversial public vote pushed forward by right-wing Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Ahead of the vote the country has faced a tidal wave of misleading arguments from the ‘No’ campaign, with a much-mocked TV advert warning about the ‘consequences’ of the vote.
The anti-gay Australian Christian Lobby, a key member of the ‘Coalition for Marriage’, is now attempting to conflate the vote, on whether to grant basic marital rights to same-sex couples, with teaching little children about gay sex.

The group claimed in a mailout: “Changing the marriage law to allow same-sex couples to marry will mean taking gender out of our laws.
“Radical gay sex education programs will become more widespread and compulsory as it has overseas.
“If you are concerned about your rights as a parent, or radical gay sex education in classrooms. ITS [sic] OK TO VOTE NO.”
It is also promoting the book ‘Stealing From a Child – The Injustice of ‘Marriage Equality’.

The TV ad war is expected to intensify ahead of the debate.
PinkNews can reveal that the Coalition for Marriage is aggressively soliciting donations from conservatives in the country, seeking to raise  $35,000 a day “to keep [their] ad on the air”.
In a mailout to supporters, the group wrote: “Last night we launched our first TV ad of the campaign.
“This commercial will play an important role in helping Australians understand the consequences of changing our marriage laws.
“We need to make sure as many Australians as possible have a chance to see this ad.
“So please watch it, share it with your friends and family – and please give to ensure we have the $35,000 needed each night to keep this ad on the air.”
Explainer: What the hell is going on with same-sex marriage in Australia?

The Coalition for Marriage made several spurious claims about the potential consequences of a ‘Yes’ postal vote result, including a 4000% increase in children coming out as transgender, which they say would be disastrous.
Phelps sad: “The only young people affected by marriage equality are young gay people who, for the first time, will have the same dignity as everyone else in our country and they deserve that.”
Executive Director of the Equality Campaign Tiernan Brady said: “The next few weeks must be a campaign of respectful conversations, not angry debates, because this is about real people’s lives and their dignity.
“Lesbian and gay people are our family members, friends, neighbours and workmates and we would ask all who take part in our national conversation to remember that.”
