aspire to give our children

what I believe to be the

very best circumstances.

(Calm piano music)

- [Voiceover] Marriage is

between a man and a woman

because of children.

Because motherhood and

fatherhood are important.

- [Voiceover] What a load of rubbish.

- [Voiceover] Legalising same

sex marriage will institute

the motherless family,

or the fatherless family.

It will inflict that

depravation on those children.

can't simultaneously provide

both mothering and fathering skills.

Two women that can have,

Watch out, to say thanks

for all the stuff.

You don't have to even, just spit it




(Clock ticks)

- [Rory] Look, it's Santa's


- [Jamie] Oh it is too, must

have come down the side.

- His reindeer's hoof print!

- Check it out!

I dunno if Santa's got horseshoes
