George Christensen, MP for Dawson (Mackay)



From Gay News Network

Meanwhile, National MP George Christensen used a speech to say the attempt to legislate so that churches do not have to perform same-sex marriages is part of a Western march of christophobia.

“It may be news to the secularists but church buildings are not where Christians check-in and check-out the practice of their beliefs,” he said.

“Christianity is a lived experience and Christians are called to remain true to their faith in all aspects of their lives.

“But, despite the Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, nation-states throughout the West have effectively outlawed public observance of Christian belief.”

  1. This issue really annoys me. Our country has so many bigger problems than whether or not gay people get married. We are already seeing massive job cuts, small businesses going bankrupt, the cost of living skyrocketing etc etc etc. What’s more important to the anti-gay marriage block, Australian families being able to support themselves or whether people that they will probably never meet or talk to are married? Just legislate marriage equality for everyone, get over it and move on to more important issues.

  2. Call me stupid, but how does gay marriage deny him his right to follow his chosen faith?

    I can see it denies him his right to be bigoted towards same sex couples, but that doesn’t have anything to do with Christianity. Does it?
