Letters: Same sex marriage is coming, time will tell

Letters: MR TRUSS believes the majority of people in Wide Bay don't support same-sex marriage.

I'd like to know the age of the people that responded to the survey that was done through post boxes.

Do the survey online, Mr Truss, and I'm sure you will find a very different result, as the national consensus is around 72% believe everyone should have the right to marry.

Marriage came about because puritans, long after Christianity was invented by men, suddenly got the idea that sex was sinful without some sort of religious ceremony.

Words supposedly from the Bible pointed to this.

As we know, the Bible was changed and rewritten over the generations to reflect the views of the day.

If Christianity lasts for another few hundred years, I'm sure someone somewhere will add same-sex marriage to another updated version of the Bible.

Same-sex marriage will happen in this country. It's just a shame some people have to be dragged into the 21st century.

Joan Gillies,

Amamoor.
