Its all about me politicians

Can't even focus on the effect of supporting legislation to include gays in the Marriage Act
My point is that the history of the best of western ( Christian ) culture is to make an absolutely minimum number of laws to regulate people's choices - for when children are involved and NEED protection .The russians can see it but we can't.
Penny Wong completely misses THIS critical point . I struggle to understand why thinking people and her own party take her seriously. She doesn't even get close to properly considering the critical need for civil marriage in most cultures and most of history .

To quote her 
" To suggest that marriage should be defined only by reference to children would mean marriages in which someone is infertile would not be allowed.Marriages where the couple did not want to have a family wouldn’t be allowed.Marriages where the couple were too old to have children wouldn’t be allowed".

 To me it all seems to be about "what I want " not about "what the law is for ".
I have listened enough to her before to just " switch off "completely .I will do it again.Our kids deserve better

Heaven help us

Heaven help us when we need the police to tell us whether we are doing the wrong thing. Can we expect the police and the growing nanny state to provide us final verdicts on more and more things? If we ask for it , maybe we will get it ?
The PM's  press agent is said to have not committed " a crime "after a group stormed a private meeting following his advice on a high level public meeting whereabouts on Australia day . Whether the advisor did anything wrong has not been established . Whether Tony Hodges did anything wrong should be the focus , both for his benefit and for limiting this growing reliance on outsiders for evaluating the moral economy.
Our system of justice means the man himself should speak and be heard,  not the police and the political implications of a non trial and a political proclamation of "there is nothing to answer ' Always better to clear the air - it saves the courts being clogged up with crap that could and should have been sorted out earlier.
