Laws  won’t solve the refugee or same sex marriage issues


Today, refugees and same sex marriage are two issues occupying the minds of politicians across the world (although the latter has more prominence in the west than the east) that have never been resolved and I doubt will ever be resolved by law. However, both issues are likely to keep lawyers in a style of living to which they have become accustomed.

However, there is a difference: marital disputes can lead to small domestic wars but the issue of refugees can, does, and has, led to full blown wars between countries. Indeed one need only be interested in politics to know the latter is true.

In Australia, unfortunately, refugees have become a major issue in the coming election as Labor and the Liberal/National Coalition battle it out in the media while the Greens and minor parties sit on the sidelines cheering them on to destruction. Not that this will happen of course but, “We live in Hope” is the latter’s standby campaign slogan.

Refugees should not be an issue on which voters stand aloof because Australia has always been a land of refugees even if not all came for the same reason. Some came because officers of Australia’s Immigration Department assured them it was a land of opportunity; others came because they had nowhere else to go; some came for the better weather; and some came for economic reasons.

Some of today’s refugees, fleeing from home if fear of their lives and the lives of their children, think of Australia as a haven of safety where their fear of death will grow to a love of life. One hopes that if they get a chance to settle down, their hopes might be realised

Sadly and unfortunately, however, they are being treated as pawns in a political battle between two men each of whom wants to be Australia’s principal wielder of power the like of whom the refugees thought they had escaped. The situation is not without irony because in no small measure, Australia, albeit by participating in wars that made it necessary for the refugees to flee their homeland, is keeping them penned up in conditions as bad as those from which they fled.

Reading between the lines I cannot see Prime Minister Rudd changing his mind on the issue. On the other hand if Mr Abbott decided to look at the matter again and change his mind he could well benefit at the ballot box. After all he his opponent his opponent has changed his mind regularly.

Same sex marriage

Neither a member nor a follower of any religion, I hope, nevertheless, that a relationship between same sex couples is never described in the same way as the relationship I enjoy with my wife. Using ‘love’ as the basis for the rightness of same sex marriage clearly shows its proponents do not understand the complexity of heterosexual marriage.

That same sex marriage seems likely to be legalised in mainly western society it is unlikely to be recognised as acceptable by many nor recognised as such in other societies. Indeed, as has happened in Western Society’s other social engineering experiments unwanted and unintended consequences could be many.

I believe also that the process of procreation is a gift from Mother Nature to man to ensure continuance of her creation – humanity. Indeed, in all civil societies since the dawn of history, heterosexual coupling even if no children were born, was recognised as marriage.

Sad as it is, while endowing all men and women with the capacity to procreate, Mother Nature was discriminatory by not endowing different couplings with the capacity to enjoy it to the full. However no amount of legislation can change the situation and I doubt Mother Nature will change it either.

That said, perhaps proponents of same sex marriage would like to take Mother Nature to the Human Rights Commission. Indeed they would be better off using common sense to solve a confected problem that almost certainly will continue in every millennium to come.

Let me also remind them of the adage: if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
