Comment on You can vote No with love: Alice priest by Evelyne Roullet.

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.

You can vote No with love: Alice priest
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.
Can we have a legal bounding marriage of three people?


You can vote No with love: Alice priest
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.”

Human rights, centre stage
Congratulations to all recipients, rewards well merited.
However I agree with John

Justice is one of the most important moral and political concepts.
Latin socius means “friend.” A friend is a person who we know well and who we like a lot, but who is usually not a member of our family.
So we can wish justice even if it is not for our friends.
Social justice is a political and philosophical concept which holds that all people should have equal access to wealth, health, well being, justice and opportunity.
We have all the same rights, that is JUSTE.


Youth crime operation not enough, curfew needed: Lambley
Cradle! Why such name? The kids on the street, for the majority, are not babies. Many have been initiated which means they are adult members of the community.
The ages of the person being initiated varies between language groups, but usually occur between the ages of 10 and 16 years.


Not us and them. Just us, says Cr Melky.
Phil, this forum was opened to all those who are “fed up” with crimes and would like to help to restore dignity to Alice. Nothing to do with skin as we all bleed red.

I agree Chris – a bail? How much was the bail? Or is it free, no ties attached?
At 22 you are not a kid, you know very well what you are doing ad penalties should apply even if it is the first offense.
May be it is time to review the NT Legislation / Bail Act.
We need a system by which offenses are linked to a punishment, like the demerit points for driving offenses.
Court should be only if there is doubt of the guilt.
