Couple who have vowed to divorce if Australia legalises gay marriage deserve nothing but contempt
Yesterday, The Telegraph reported that an Australian couple named Nick and Sarah Jensen have announced that they will divorce if the nation legalises gay marriage. In doing so, this ridiculous pair make a mockery of the institution they claim to respect and that a Facebook group “celebrating their impending divorce” has attracted over 171,000 members is not surprising.
Of why they intend to take such a course of action, Mr Jensen – “who has worked as a Christian lobbyist and founded an organsiation that trains Christians to enter public life” – commented:
“The decision to divorce is not one we’ve taken lightly… And certainly, it’s not one that many will readily understand … So why do this? It will certainly complicate our lives as we try to explain our marital status on the sidelines during Saturday sport. The reason, however, is that, as Christians, we believe marriage is not a human invention… [Marriage is] a sacred institution, ordained by God”.
Mr and Mrs Jensen are entitled to do as they wish but in publicly making such a declaration, all they achieve is to make themselves like utter fools and thus we make them our most worthy Wallies of the Week.
