As Australia's marriage equality plebiscite looms, there are certain phrases that will not stop resurfacing.
One in particular is shaping up to be a favourite of many groups likely to be involved in the "no" campaign: the "rainbow agenda".
David van Gend, of the Australian Marriage Forum, told the Sydney Morning Herald part of the reason he opposes same-sex marriage is because he fears the "rainbow agenda".
Lyle Shelton, of the Australian Christian Lobby, has said numerous times that the "rainbow agenda" is a package deal with same-sex marriage.
Anti-marriage equality group Marriage Alliance has also enthusiastically adopted the phrase on its social media.
There are variations, too! The age-old "gay agenda" has made a few appearances – including from Senator Cory Bernardi.
Bernardi also labelled various LGBTI campaigns as "an agenda of intolerance" ...
... while the Australian Christian Lobby replaced "agenda" with "politics", presumably just to mix things up a little.
But what *is* the Rainbow Agenda? We asked three of its most enthusiastic proponents to explain.
Lyle Shelton, Australian Christian Lobby
"We have observed that the rainbow political agenda encompasses the so-called 'Safe Schools' program teaching children their gender is fluid, the political push to redefine marriage (also pushed by 'Safe Schools'), the political push for liberalising surrogacy laws so two men can access babies, and the push to use anti-discrimination laws to restrict free speech on marriage as seen by the legal action against Tasmania's Archbishop Julian Porteous. All of this activity, and more, is being driven by political activists who use the rainbow flag."
Sophie York, Marriage Alliance
"There is a clear agenda being driven to change social policy on a range of issues including same sex marriage, sex and gender education in schools, and seeking to remove freedom of speech protections. All of these are draped in the rainbow flag."
David van Gend, Australian Marriage Forum
"Those of us who once thought that 'marriage equality' was just about marriage now realise we were wrong. For the serious players, it is about completing a revolution. It is about capturing the cultural and legal high ground from where the entire 'rainbow agenda' can be enforced: from imposing radical 'Safe Schools' gender theory on our kids to passing laws to let cross-dressing males use girls’ bathrooms; from bankrupting bakers who don’t want to write a gay 'marriage' slogan on a cake to prosecuting church leaders for teaching traditional values on marriage; from removing ‘mother and rather’ from birth certificates to changing ‘husband and wife’ into ‘Partner A&B’."
