Default As predicted, plebiscite brings out the crazies

...you only had to see Bronywn Bishop among the crazies on Sky the other night to realise the damage it does. Apparently, if we allow marriage equality in Oz, if we recognise the rights of gays, we are only one step away from men marrying dogs, and allowing five people to marry!

Oh, and according to Tony Abbott, did you know this is all about religious freedom and stopping political correctness in its tracks, not basic human rights. The Australian Christian Lobby has the hide to refer to the children of gay parents as the "stolen generation". Can you imagine the hurt such words cause?
"History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government".
-Thomas Jefferson

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.
