    ‘Another opponent of the bill, Christian Democratic Party leader Reverend Fred Nile, added: “Is this really an ideological issue or homosexuals demanding yet another human right?”‘

    Wait, what?

  2. Christians really hate children don’t they.

    And religion seems defined by hatred.

    Thank Cher I’m an atheist. Worshipping the spiteful, vicious and cruel christian, muslim or jewish ‘god’ sounds like a nightmare. ‘God’ sounds like a bigotted @assh0le.

    ‘Another opponent of the bill, Christian Democratic Party leader Reverend Fred Nile, added: “Is this really an ideological issue or homosexuals demanding yet another human right?”‘

    Because clearly we’re not human and therefore shouldn’t even consider having equal rights. Silly us.

  4. The so called ‘Reverend’ Fred Nile is an abomination in the NSW Upper House! The sad ‘Protestant’ is amazingly re-elected each time by mainly fascist Roman Catholics! Hopefully the poor old homophobe will drop dead one day! One of the most despised politicians in Australia!

  5. “Every child, where possible, should have a mother and a father and this legislation is going to deprive many children in the future. This has nothing to do with religion . . . this has to do with morality and the right of the child.”

    Its clearly everything to do with religion, seeing as theres no evidence to show that children with same sex parents do worse. Anyway if they’re convinced that children in single sex families are disadvantaged, why arent they morally outraged at single parents? I guess ‘morality’ is fickle.

  6. I should point out to non-aussies that Fred Nile’s party, the Christian Democrats, is neither Christian – he is despised by, and was kicked out of, his own denomination, despite the media he is NOT a Reverend, nor does he believe in democracy – he has a very small voter base and is supported by the Labor party who know they can count on his vote. He said recently that he voted for a bill that he didn’t agree with, purely because of a Labor party deal. He is truly an abomination.

  7. Has just passed the Lower House 46 to 44! Will go to the Upper House now for the next stage of voting.
