The following disgusting quotation is from the Australian National Imams Council:
“The Australian National Imams Council (ANIC) affirms that Islam sanctifies marriage as only being between a man and a woman. This has been the view held by all major faiths including the traditional Judaeo-Christian beliefs and other traditions throughout human history. The Quranic revelations and Prophetic teachings with regard to the institution of marriage make this clear. Islam places the family unit at the heart of a healthy society, and in this context, the right of children to be cared for and raised by both a mother and father is one that must be protected. Islam also explicitly and unambiguously states that marital relationship is only permissible between a man and woman; any other marital relationships are islamicly impermissible. ANIC strongly believes that all members of our pluralistic society should be able to express their views on marriage, in a respectful manner and without fear of reprisal or unwarranted criticism which fails to respond to the issues at hand. We therefore call for respectful and responsible dialogue.”
There is no reasonable grounds for opposing the progress of society and the marriage between people of the same sex. Love is love, and it is the current year. We here at The XYZ can understand how people can have differing opinions on certain things, but on this question, there is no logical explanation for the opposition to people being happy other than pure hate
The XYZ condemns the Australian National Imams Council in the strongest possible terms, and we hope that the rest of the Australian media can show the same strength in the face of intolerance that we do.
It’s your XYZ.
