This morning’s Sunrise on channel 7 in Victoria hosted a short debate between the Sex Party’s senate candidate Fiona Patten and the DLP’s senate candidate Mark Farrell.
This 5 minute debate touched on the issues of same-sex “marriage” and abortion, with both sides presenting their positions.
While on the topic of abortion, in what appeared to be an attempt to deceive people and throw mud at the DLP, Fiona Patten declared that it is stated in the DLP Constitution that the DLP are “against sex before marriage”.
Mark Farrell refuted this, stating that it was not in the Party’s Constitution. “I am the Federal Secretary and I know my Party”, Mark added.
Indeed, Mark was right. Here is a copy of the DLP’s most up-to-date Constitution:
DLP Constitution and By-Laws
Nowhere in the Constitution do you find such a statement. No such thing is mentioned in any of the Party’s policies, either.
The private relationship between two people is not a matter for the state to legislate on. Is the Sex Party really that unintelligent as to think the DLP would support a position that would require a state-sanctioned, legislated move to have police patrolling our citizens’ bedrooms? Sounds a bit Communist to me.
Massive fail, Sex Party.
