A while back, thousands of years, in the Bronze Age, a man wrote that his god demanded that homosexual men should be stoned to death. I don't know why the man wrote that. It's possible that he believed he knew the mind of his god, there were schizophrenic people in the Bronze Age. He might have written it because he was a bigoted jerk. He might have been a bigoted schizophrenic jerk.
Next year Australia, the land of my birth, will hold a plebiscite, should the marriage law be changed to include all people, not just straight men and women? My government will supply money to a range of lobby groups to state the No and Yes cases. Some of this money will go to Christian groups to argue the No case on biblical grounds.
Effectively, my taxes will be employed to voice the opinion of a Bronze Age schizophrenic or bigot in order to be seen to be fair to the Christian schizophrenics and bigots of today. I don't perceive this as a reasonable use of my tax dollars.

It wasn't so long ago that ignorant, indolent populations sought charismatic puppet leaders and a trite, nostalgic form of conservatism to take care of all that real life stuff for them so they could enjoy their facile entertainments and false financial security. It resulted in the war to end all wars, then another war. It seems us humans forget our lessons rapidly and need to learn them again, then again.
Lest we forget.
