It’s a disappointing day. And sometimes as Christians we find ourselves in a season of Lament.
Indeed, there is a whole book of the Bible called Lamentations. I just happened to be in Chapters three and four as part of my devotional readings this morning.
Tomorrow at 10am we will know the results of the marriage postal plebiscite.
I will be hunkered down with our Coalition for Marriage and ACL Team at a hotel in Sydney.
Having fought so hard for so long, we want to be together.
The marathon marriage campaign ended this afternoon at 4.30pm. After three months, thousands of Coalition for Marriage volunteers downed tools. We all feel a bit sad today – it has been such a bonding experience.
In what could be a line from St Paul, neither perpendicular middle fingers, banners cut down nor screamed abuse from passing hoons has been enough to deter our magnificent Freedom Team volunteers from chasing every last vote.

Parental rights to keep their children free of radical LGBTIQ sex and gender theory in the classroom will be a major issue for the November 25 Queensland election.
The kids are okay. Shut up. That’s the message from the same-sex marriage movement.

One million dollars of defence funding has been spent on sex change operations over the past few years. This is unheard of for most Australians.
The Northern Territory Government has revealed that schools are being invited to participate in the radical gender fluid so-called Safe Schools program, but have stopped short –for now- of making it compulsory.
Abridged version of an address by ACL’s Lyle Shelton to the National Press Club in September 2017.
The same-sex marriage debate is charged with emotion for many people. At the height of the AIDS crisis in 1980s America, when gay men were dying like flies, people representing Christian organisations said some very hateful and hurtful things. It was a generation ago but wounds remain for our friends in the LGBTIQ community.
