CITY OF CASEY, Australia – First they were just homosexuals. Then they were “gays,” stealing an adjective from general use, and a startling misnomer at that: Are they not more than averagely cheerless?

Then they were “lesbians and gays.” Then “lesbians, gays and bisexuals.” Then “lesbians, gays, bisexuals and trans-sexuals.” Then “lesbians, gays, bisexuals, trans-sexuals and intersexuals.” And Uncle Tom Cobley and all.

Now the latest acronym appears to be “LGBTIQ.” I have no idea what “Q” signifies, and no particular desire to find out.

Let me get ahead of them and call then QWERTYUIOPASDFGHJKLZXCVBNM. That ought to cover every real or imaginary form of sexual deviancy they may dream up.

At last, the worm is turning. They’ve had it their own way throughout the years of the lengthening “alternative-sexual-lifestyle” acronym. Now a courageous councillor of the City of Casey, a leafy suburb of the Melbourne megalopolis, has decided to cry halt.

Councillor Rosalie Crestani, a happily married mother, wandered into the council offices one day a few months ago and found “LGBTI” staff training taking place in one of the lecture halls. She also saw a notice on a council notice-board telling people: “You need not say you’re LGBTI – but you can if you want.”

Councillor Crestani decided enough was enough. She decided to put forward a motion forbidding the council to promote the “LGBTI” cause in its staff training, press releases, public notices or committee meetings.

Pandemonium ensued. The QWERTYs in her constituency wrote her sneering hate-emails. Not one of her fellow councillors would second her motion. So few councillors showed up that the meeting was inquorate anyway. The meeting had to be adjourned to a second day.

Then the mayor, an unpleasant old buffer called Mick Morland – definitely long past his sell-by date, and in any event a waste of shelf space – shamelessly railroaded Councillor Crestani by refusing to acknowledge that she had voted in opposition to a gooey, pietistic counter-motion, and refusing to allow her any opportunity to call for a formal division so that her opposition could be formally noted in the minutes of the council meeting.

Meanwhile, Councillor Crestani had obtained and circulated to her fellow-councillors a 22-page opinion from a leading jurisprudential theorist specializing in constitutional and administrative law. The courts have seldom found him wrong. His judgment was that the council was discriminating wilfully, unlawfully and persistently against heterosexuals.

His argument was that nothing in the State of Victoria’s anti-discrimination laws allowed discrimination against the heterosexual majority. On the contrary, where those in power – the City of Casey Council – displayed open prejudice in favour of a minority, they were indirectly and unlawfully discriminating against the majority.

The chief executive of the council, an unelected official who had for years been getting away with telling councillors that all staff matters were his exclusive responsibility when the law actually says the council sets the policy and he carries it out day to day, wrote to all council staff calling Councillor Crestani’s views “extreme.”

Councillor Crestani circulated a note calling the chief executive’s email a “joke document” and saying it could not be genuine because no official would abandon his iron duty of impartiality by calling one of his councillors “extreme,” for that would require him to resign his post immediately.

Meanwhile, she consulted an expert in non-heterosexual lifestyles, who confirmed that the QWERTYs were far more promiscuous than the heterosexual community: Official survey after official survey had shown that homosexuals had an average of 500-1,000 partners in their sexually active lifetime, and that some had as many as 20,000. One wonders how they found time for anything else.

The wages of promiscuity is deadly disease. It is now at last admitted, even in official circles, that HIV is chiefly a disease of homosexuals and drug-abusers – and that a far greater percentage of homosexuals than heterosexuals do drugs. AIDS, then, is at root a “gay” disease, and officialdom’s terrified refusal to admit that fact has killed 36 million worldwide.

Councillor Crestani was so shocked by the official mortality figures for homosexuals that she proposes to circulate a memorandum to all councillors and staff giving them detailed statistics for promiscuity, prevalence of HIV and many other sexually transmitted diseases, and for the consequently short, miserable lives and high death rate of homosexuals.

As the experts she has consulted have pointed out, the QWERTYs – who represent about 0.5 percent of the population – have brilliantly promoted themselves by carefully shifting the debate away from what homosexuals actually do to each other (just ask any proctologist: all of them are heartily sick of trying to repair the gross damage caused by deviant sexual practices) and on to “celebrating” what is misleadingly presented as a “valid alternative lifestyle.” Deathstyle, more like.

And why have homosexuals – most of whose partners last as little as a few hours – been so keen to promote the lifetime promises of so-called “gay” so-called “marriage”? The reason, of course, is that they cannot produce children, so they want to adopt them. Is this fair to the children? The answer is no.

What makes Councillor Crestani so deadly to the QWERTYs’ cause is that she is so relentlessly nice to them. She is a Christian, so she is well used to the ancient theology that draws a clear distinction between hating the sin and loving the sinner. The key point she makes over and over again is that educating potential homosexuals in the medical dangers of their deathstyle will benefit the homosexual community first and foremost. For it is they that are most at risk, and we do them no favors by being over-delicate in refusing to educate them in the dire risks they run.

You may not have heard of Councillor Crestani, or of Casey Council. You will certainly not have heard of its undistinguished mayor or of its wealthy but misguided chief executive. But it may be that her decision to speak up – quietly, nervously, but with that undefinable air of authority that always accompanies the kindly intentioned seeker after truth – will at last bring the QWERTYs’ eerie dominance of public life to a timely end.
