I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Australia Strikes Down Law Recognizing Same-Sex Unions


The election of a conservative Christian Prime Minister has paid off. Australia has followed through on its pledge to eliminate a new law recognizing same-sex unions in Australia.

The Attorney-General used his authority Tuesday, and asked the Governor-General , the head of state under the terms of the nations constitutional monarchy, to declare the law invalid.

The push for same-sex unions with full benefits was an attempt to undermine the 2004 Federal Marriage Act that formally defined marriage as a union between a man and a women according to the Prime Minister.

The Governor-General can strike down laws passed by Australia's two territories within six months of the law's passage.

So encouraging to see decency in distinctions and definitions.
Why can't the blind people see better?
