Comment on Did Wilfred and Gisela Thor have to die? by Evelyne Roullet.

“The tragic loss of life also highlights the urgent need for a fully staffed visitor centre at the airport situated in the middle of the hire car desks where appropriate local advice and warnings can be passed to travelers, it’s way passed time we had it, and in light of this tragedy it’s the least we can do”.
You can take a horse to the water, but you cannot make it drink.
Yes lost of life is very sad, but we do not know if the couple were given safety directives. As a tour guide, I know too well how some tourists react when you give them advises especially the elders: I never wear a hat, I never drink so much water, I am old enough to know what I need.
The tourism bureau give all advice necessary. The map of Central Australia give warning to travelers, as well as the booklet produce by the bureau: “Always carry and consume water to avoid dehydration. Allow 20l per person for two days traveling and the expectation of breakdowns.”
People have to take responsibility, like this young lady who fell from the Canyon: there are signs everywhere telling to stay a minimum of two meters from the edge. Maybe a tour guide said to do it, but she did speak and read English, so she should have obeyed the rules of the park and not an idiot.

Sue, I have respect for homosexuals who come in the open (I have some in my family and a lot of friends).
But we talking only of equality for heterosexuality and homosexuality. In this case why ignoring bisexuality?
To be a heterosexual man or woman means having a personally significant and meaningful romantic and/or sexual attraction primarily to adults of the opposite sex.
To be a homosexual man or woman means having a personally significant and meaningful romantic and/or sexual attraction primarily to adults of the same sex
To be a bisexual man or woman means having a personally significant and meaningful romantic and/or sexual attraction to both adult males and females, equally attracted to both sexes.

To my knowledge, all Australian Federal and State Parliaments and Legislative Assemblies open in prayer – with most using the Lord’s Prayer Ergo Australia is a Christian country.
If the law of marriage is to be changed so the Australian Constitution
Australia’s legal system and institutions, while being secular in nature, also draw heavily on Christian ethics and morality, best illustrated by the 10 commandments and the fact that, for years, it was customary for those involved in trials to swear on the Bible.
The constitution and other laws and policies protect religious freedom and, in practice, the government generally enforced these protections.
However the major religions of Australia : Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Taoism condemned homosexuality
I think our politicians should first change Constitution and subsequent laws instead of wasting tax payer’s money on a referendum.
We have the Yes and the No who are disturbing our peace. We should may be taking model on the The 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen which is considered by legal authorities to have equal legal standing with the Constitution of France, which states: “No one may be questioned about his opinions, [and the] same [for] religious [opinions], provided that their manifestation does not trouble the public order established by the law.”

Bruce: The argument that “every other western country has embraced SSM so jump on board” is similar to the argument teenagers use on their parents. However a good parent will answer: You are not everybody else.
