Boycott Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream - to help save marriage
Why would an Ice Cream manufacturer use its product placement to try to influence a parliamentary vote in the UK on same-sex 'marriage'?
Answer - Because children like Ice cream.
See their progressive values sign and their UK ice cream container for the flavour, Apple-y Ever After - two men on a wedding cake - click here¬†and here.
Please consider going to THIS SITE and signing the boycott against this ice cream maker.
The company started in the USA - they also have outlets in NSW, Vic and Qld Capital cities including major shopping centres and some Hoyts cinemas (see list)...
The Australian website doesn't actually have this flavour - or the equality statement. . . YET!
[Article... In a show of support for the legalisation of 'marriage' for same-sex couples in the UK, Ben & Jerry's has renamed its Apple Pie flavour Apple-y Ever After. In 2009, they renamed their 'Chubby Hubby' Ice cream to Hubby Hubby to celebrate same-sex 'marriage' legalisation in Vermont in the USA. (Source)]¬†
Melanie Phillips - At last, a [UK] Judge tells the truth about divorce
At a time when our government, and that of the UK, is considering moving to undermine marriage by extending it to same-sex relationships, we all need to understand that we heterosexuals have already helped to undermine marriage by accepting 'easy' divorce laws.
Melanie applauds a UK Judge for speaking out and telling the truth - something the Bible says the 'STONES' will do if Christians do not'.
Certainly, much of the church in this nation, and in Britain, has dismally failed to herald the importance of marriage and the inevitable devastation caused, especially to children, by divorce.
If we are to oppose same-sex 'marriage', we must also promote marriage and talk plainly about how lax we have been in opposing easy divorce. See attached article - it is worth reading and thinking about as we fight to save marriage in Australia. This should be a wake-up call to the church as well as to society generally. The truth, however much it hurts, must be spoken. As Melanie says at the end of the article "For evil to triumph, it only needs good men [and women] to stay silent." (Web link)
