What on earth has marriage equality got to do with Sensible Sentencing? Quite a lot apparently. Garth McVicar thinks that marriage equality will lead to hordes of criminal beasts committing all sorts of crimes against humanity:
Crime will rise if gay couples are allowed to marry, says the head of the country’s victim lobby group.
Sensible Sentencing Trust leader Garth McVicar has submitted to Parliament that changing the law to allow same-sex marriage will be yet another erosion of basic morals and values in society which have led to an escalation of child abuse, domestic violence, and an ever-increasing prison population.
“The marriage amendment bill will not benefit society at all and will ultimately have detremetal (sic) effect on crime at all levels,” the submission read.
Newsflash Garth…child abuse and domestic violence already exist, in large quantities, in heterosexual relationships…all the time…just ask Mr B.
Marriage equality will not cause what already exists, and this has nothing to do with sensible sentencing…stick to your knitting fella.
