August 16 shaping up as the day of darkness at Parliament House

johnboy 15 July 2011 160

Earlier in the week we were disturbed that the kings of Sydney talkback radio, Alan Jones, Ray Hadley, and Chris Smith, were coming to Canberra to broadcast from the lawns of Parliament House.

We gather that’s for some sort of anti carbon tax rally.

But now the Sydney gay media is noting that there’s going to be a gay hate march converging on our fair city that same day:

A collection of gay hate groups will join forces to rally against marriage equality in Canberra next month.

An initiative of the Australian Family Association, the National Marriage Coalition, the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) and Dads4Kids: Fatherhood Foundation, the coalition is aiming for a repeat of its 2004 rally which coincided with the Howard Government’s changes to the Marriage Act.

The groups will meet in Parliament House’s Great Hall on August 16.

The ‘National Marriage Day’ is being advertised by the group as being the first day of sitting for the new Senate in which the Greens hold the balance of power, despite the new Senate having already sat this month.
“You are needed in Canberra to show support for natural marriage and warn all politicians,” its call to action on the ACL website reads.

Is it time for Canberra to get it’s freak on?

UPDATE: Thanks to the readers who’ve pointed out Radio National reporting that the unholy trinity are scared to face the people of Canberra.

So we will have a day of reckoning on the 16th August, when the sensible can out the raving loony right wingers for their scare campaign. It should be an excellent day. The Left or centre left are not the loonies, especially in Canberra, we are the thinkers of society. We will be prepared.

We should use it as an opportunity to have our own Canberra Mardi Gras on that day! (Though I admit I am now having fantasies of floats being converted into heavily armed tanks and mowing the lot of them down!)

I agree. I’m sick of these nasty people peddling their hatred. A counter-protest sounds like a very good idea.

I say we take off and nuke the site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

I love how this quote is used about 5 times a week in various threads. In fact, with minimal effort, i’m sure a version of it could be used as a reply in ANY thread! 😛

I wish, on one hand, that the world was free of the ignorant, uneducated trash of mediocrity these protestors so clearly are.

On the other hand, I’d love to take a cricket bat to the whole lot.

You know, I couldn’t have summed my feelings about the whole thing better myself!

A +1 from me.

We just need Pastor Danny Nalliah and his Catch the Fire mob of fruitcakes, and we’ve got the hat-trick.
