The case has been made almost entirely in terms of "equality" and its alleged opposite: "discrimination".
The argument is that applying the word "marriage" to some relationships and not to others is unequal treatment, and thus discrimination. But it is the duty of the law to judiciously discriminate and to appropriately recognise difference with, at times, unequal treatment of things that are not the same.
It is, or is intended as, a life-long union between two people who exemplify the biological duality of the human race, with the openness to welcoming children into the world.
Even when children do not arrive, the differentiated twoness of marriage indicates its inherent structure.
This is where Bill Shorten again misunderstands what marriage is.
As we now understand it, marriage is not merely the expression of a love people have for each other.
It is the meaning of marriage that emerges from all human cultures as they reflect on and experience what it is to be male and female. When I ask them about marriage, they almost always indicate that it is for them the beginning of a new family unit open to welcoming children.The surveys say that Australians want capital punishment.Wisely, our politicians don't listen to surveys on that issue (and I agree with them).They should exercise leadership, not follow opinion.Could it be that if you haven't heard the case opposing a change to the marriage law, it is because the language of those advocating it has been so emotive that the contrary case can't be heard above the noise?There are those in favour of change, we are told, and then there are the bigots.But simply saying "it's time" doesn't make an argument.In order to offer the status of marriage to couples of the same sex, the very meaning of marriage has to be changed.In which case, what same-sex couples will have will not be the same as what differently sexed couples now have.Another is that I stand adamantly against the bullying and vilification of people of minority sexual identities.Nevertheless, I don't think that the case for change is anywhere near as convincing as its proponents think it is.
