David Cameron on gay marriage

Family First should adopt this policy on gay marriage because of exactly the same reasons that David Cameron explains. They won’t though because they like dying in a ditch and losing battles.

“I once stood before a Conservative conference and said it shouldn’t matter whether commitment was between a man and a woman, a woman and a woman, or a man and another man. You applauded me for that. Five years on, we’re consulting on legalising gay marriage. And to anyone who has reservations, I say: Yes, it’s about equality, but it’s also about something else: commitment. Conservatives believe in the ties that bind us; that society is stronger when we make vows to each other and support each other. So I don’t support gay marriage despite being a Conservative. I support gay marriage because I’m a Conservative.” - David Cameron in a speech to the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester.

Not as good as my policy on gay marriage, but a more mature reasoning than anything seen here.

    At last, someone who understands that “conservative” doesn’t mean “reactionary”;  Conservatives are people who believe in incremental, organic reforms that build on, and improve, the values that have proven their worth over the generations. Unlike the socialist Left, for whom social reforms are just a smokescreen to divert attention to them removing our liberties in other aspects of our lives.
