Bennelong Marriage Forum
Top Canadian Author to speak in Eastwood in defence of traditional marriage
An internationally recognized speaker and author, Dawn Stefanowicz will be the keynote speaker at the inaugural public meeting of the Bennelong Marriage Forum to be held from 2-4pm on Saturday 25 July 2015 at St Kevin’s Parish Hall, 36 Hillview Road, Eastwood.
Dawn Stefanowicz, who has experienced a most difficult childhood detailed in her riveting book, Out from Under: The Impact of Homosexual Parenting, commences her much read article, A Warning from Canada: Same-Sex Marriage Erodes Fundamental Rights:
“I am the daughter of a gay father who died of AIDS. I described my experiences in my book: Out From Under: The Impact of Homosexual Parenting. Over fifty adult children who were raised by LGBT parents have communicated with me and share my concerns about same-sex marriage and parenting. Many of us struggle with our own sexuality and sense of gender because of the influences in our household environments growing up. We have great compassion for people who struggle with their sexuality and gender identity-not animosity. And we love our parents. Yet, when we go public with our stories, we often face ostracism, silencing, and threats.”
She warns other nations of the repercussions of changing the legal definition of marriage:
“In Canada, freedoms of speech, press, religion, and association have suffered greatly due to government pressure. The debate over same-sex marriage that is taking place in the United States could not legally exist in Canada today. Because of legal restrictions on speech, if you say or write anything considered “homophobic”Share
