SAME- SEX POLL
FORTY- NINE- year- old Catholic farmer and contractor Anthony Cardillo will be voting “no” when it comes to filling out his postal ballot.
He says marriage is between a man and a woman. Anthony ( pictured) says he can’t understand why gays and lesbians are not happy with a civil union and why they insist on wanting to be married.
“I vote ‘ no’ to gay marriage but ‘ yes’ to a civil union,” he said. In Queensland homosexual couples can enter a civil union. Only heterosexuals are recognised under the Commonwealth Marriage Act.
Anthony believes that if the “yes” vote prevails, the meaning of the word “marriage” will be diminished.
“The word marriage is between a man and a woman. I’m married. I don’t call it a relationship. It’s a marriage,” he said.
