ERIC Abetz inadvertently brought a little humour into the unpleasant debate about marriage equality. Supporting the bid to ban an American from singing at the rugby-league grand final because he didn’t like the song, he stated that people should be able to leave their differences behind when they go to the footy. I don’t think he can have ever been to a game, especially a grand final, if he thinks that.
TONY Abbott has criticised the NRL for choosing Macklemore as the lead act for its grand final entertainment on the grounds the event should not be politicised. Interesting, since it is difficult to remember any remark of his that was not deeply political in the past three years. The NRL has got it right. What better way to maximise viewer audience?
I AM voting Yes for the children of my friends and the children of people who choose to vote No. I want these children to grow up in an inclusive and welcoming society and to be allowed to love and marry whoever they want, and for all people to have the same rights. That is what this survey is about. Equality for all people. Don’t believe the hype. Just vote Yes for equality.
