There’s an inevitability to same-sex marriage that is obvious to pretty much any Australian who isn’t Cory Bernardi (well, around 70 per cent of us at last count).
There is no sound reason why, in 2016, any Australian should be discriminated against because of who they happen to fall in love with.
Zip. Zilch. Nada. Zero. None.
A plebiscite on the issue will cost tax-payer’s a whopping $160 million and a ‘yes’ vote will not necessarily ensure marriage equality.
Regardless of the cost, a plebiscite won’t happen until after the next election. That’s too long for us to wait, sorry.
We think “it’s time” and we are not alone.
