On Friday 22 May 2015 is the Referendum on Marriage irrespective of gender.
Vote YES to Marriage Equality
Humanism means that people compose their own moral rules, and choose which rules to adopt. This means choosing rules by reason, and not by supposed revelation from a god.
There is no sensible reason that the State should not register and recognise every person’s partnership in life, whether the partner is of the other sex or the same sex as the first person. The idea that only a person of the other sex can be a marriage partner gets its largest and least rational support from sources that some people believe came from a god.
So the Mid-West Humanists say Vote YES to Marriage Equality on Friday 22 May 2015.
If you think the Referendum should be passed, then just as you are responsible for choosing moral rules, you have equal responsibility to each of the other 3 million voters. So go out on Friday and vote. If you want it to pass, but you don’t vote and it is defeated, you as well as any others who don’t vote will be responsible.
Please, if you want it to pass, go out and vote.
