Why is Bill Shorten Attending the Australian Christian Lobby National Conference?
The leader of the opposition, Bill Shorten, has been confirmed as the keynote speaker at The Australian Christian Lobby’s National Conference in October this year.
This is the same event that former Prime Minister Julia Gillard was booked to address, but cancelled at a rate of knots after the hate group’s then leader Jim Wallace suggested that the homosexual “lifestyle” was more hazardous than smoking.
The fight against marriage equality is still a central platform for the Christian Lobby, and something its leader Lyle Shelton has been particularly vocal about again since a new poll found 72% of Australians wanted the reform.
In a press release strangely titled ‘More mature marriage debate needed’, Shelton steered well clear of maturity last week as he expressed his slippery slope fears about same-sex marriage, including the strange idea that children would be taken from their biological parents, and that polygamy or even ‘child marriage’ could result opening up marriage laws to same-sex couples.
It’s beyond me what Bill hopes to achieve from this ill-considered venture particularly when you consider that the Australian Christian Lobby primarily consists of a mob of mean-spirited, elderly white people with their mean pursed lips, pearl earrings and tartan skirts mouthing off at anything that poses a “threat” to their hokey little twin-set and horn-rimmed view of the world.
I mean seriously, what can he possibly hope to achieve?
This bunch of antediluvian mongrels masquerade their hate-filled views couched as some sort of feigned concern for “the children” (who will think of them?), but in reality, the ever present odour of their rancid views invariably seeps through and is self-evident for anyone with half a brain – which is quite clearly the upper limit for membership of their fucked-up little group.
