FEAR STALKS AUSTRALIAN SOCIETY WHILE WE DROWSE: too soon it will be too late.
Coopers Breweries are currently in panic mode – terrified of being boycotted by the homosexual lobby.
They’re busily disclaiming any support for a televised polite discussion between two politicians about same-sex-marriage (SSM) — which happened to advertise their product.
What might be the attitude of ordinary NON-homosexual beer-drinkers to SSM? It’s on them that Coopers depend most of all to make money.
Nobody knows for sure.
However, their attitude to spineless inhibiting of free speech by big-moneyed corporations — I think we can guess that.
The debate itself was wishy-washy and missed the main point.
Isn’t the worst thing about SSM that such couples will use their being “married” to reinforce their claimed “right” to adopt children – thus unnecessarily depriving children of a mother-father-based family unit to belong to?
That aspect didn’t get a mention.
