LETTER: Rainbow a symbol for end of marriage as we know it

AS THE debate about same-sex marriage rages, one avoids the TV and hopes it will all go away.

Private business is not usually newspaper headlines, and politicians are supposed to mind the country's business, not meddle where angels fear to tread.

What has happened to the mindset of Australians that they quote other places and demand their choices to be ours.

Others have stated very robustly their views, however this writer seeks to find answers as to what has changed in Australia to the degree that what was once a rainbow in the sky after rain, has become a symbol of the end of what marriage has been for ever and a day.

One thing beyond understanding is the blatant undisguised rage that accompanies some groups that seek change.

One would wish calmer, kinder, less absorbed and wilfully implicit demands be curtailed, for there will be a lot of water pass under the bridge before judgment day, and Australia will not go along with the bedlam of outlandish displays of today.

Allora.
