The Rabbit Answers

Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott Rabbit was on the ABC’s QandA last night, when he was asked to explain why he thought marriage was between a man and a woman he responded:

TONY ABBOTT: Well, just because that’s what a marriage is. I think it’s a definitional question. I’m not saying that there can’t be good and wholesome relationships that aren’t between a man and a woman, but if it’s marriage, it is between a man and a woman.

That’s it.  Just because?   This is the sort of useless ‘debate’ that discussion of marriage descends into.  Tony shows just how stupid the argument against (or for) marriage is.  He has no argument.  His answer to the notion that some of the citizens are treated as second class is to apologise that he is a disappointment.


What he really means to say is that he has an unsubstantiated argument, and really he is just trying to keep his vote base happy.  He knows that he hasn’t got a chance of staying in power if he even entertains the notion of equality for all citizens.

So again, recognition that gay people have relationships that are just as valid as anyone else, but still unable to say yes to equality.

What do we have to do to get politicians with some balls in Australia?

I know, lets grab the nuts of some alpacas and sew them on Tony.  Maybe six.  No make it seven.

  1. I can’t believe anyone can get away with having that opinion and saying it outloud on TV. He sounds like an incorrect whimp, which we all know is much worse than just being incorrect anyway.
    Marriage is a union between two people who love each other, regardless of sex, age, creed or species.
    Ok, maybe the species bit is one step too far, but the point still stands.
    Good post man.
