Rainbow coalition to collide with Christian Lobby and Gillard security on 6 October

By johnboy - 5 September 2012 36

It seems the LGBT community is bussing in to protest Julia Gillard prostrating herself to the Australian Christian Lobby.

6 October is shaping up to be a bit of fun around town then.

What’s Your opinion?

Dare I say there are possibly even gay christians, who the ACL would claim are no longer christian despite their religious beliefs.

The ACL claim all sorts of whacky stuff, and like to pretend that a large segment of the community agree with them.

The ACL are to Christians what Leatherface is to Forestry Workers.

Except the Christian lobby group well and truly started this, its not like the lbgt community is advocating “no Christians”, where as plenty of Christians are advocating “no gays”.

This sums it up pretty well.

I guess there’s no need for them to worry now; it would appear she’s pulled out: http://www.smh.com.au/opinion/political-news/gillard-singes-christian-lobby-over-gay-smoking-remark-20120906-25fye.html

It’s a pretty aggressive move, when you think about it – picketing the visiti of a PM with a lobby group.

All this will do is convince some people that the real aim of the LBGT lobby is to remove the rights of Christians to have a public opinion or speak with politicians on anything. It doesn’t make them look like they really want equality.

If the Christians left the gays alone the gays would leave the Christians alone, but the Christian lobby just keeps on attacking.

The ‘Christian Lobby’ is not about christians it is about religious extremsits – I certainly hope they don’t speak for most christians…

Gillard doesn’t have a left bone in her body.

Given that the fundies never vote for anyone other than the family parties and the Libs I will never understand the inclination of Gillard and others, to waste precious oxygen on them. They’re filled with hate and ignorance, that they try to justify by saying that they just want to help people.

I find it hard to believe that someone from the left of the labor party, who lives with her boyfriend and is an atheist is sincerely opposed to gay marriage. She’s a total cynic.

Indeed. Don’t forget, though, that the “left” of the Labor Party is still the right.

She and her party are political whores who’ll sell out any principle for a vote.

Have you seen the clothes she wears? A ranga who wears a bright orange blazer does not have any judgement whatsoever.

Being a bloke, I find it remarkably easy not to f*ck with dykes. 🙂

Anyway, this is mind boggling. An atheist PM as the keynote speaker in front of a bunch of religious nutbags? What could she possibly be thinking, if anything?

These religious types can’t help themselves, always poking around in other people’s pants. Say what you like about the lbgt community, but at least they aren’t trying to control other people’s sex lives, the Christians are clearly the aggressors here.

Why politicians pander to a small organisation whose bark is far worse than its bite I’ll never know. Seriously, they’re obvious nutjobs that claim to speak for all christians/catholics when the reality is that the majority of said groups detest the ACL.

That said, I just get the feeling that even though she’s a self confessed atheist that doesn’t honestly hold the views she professes to the christian lobby groups. I just get a sense of dishonesty and a willingness to sell her own soul for support.
