An Australian plebiscite on gay marriage is expensive, pointless, and will give opposers the opportunity to run hate campaigns. Say no to a plebiscite and sign the petition today.
The current state of support for same-sex marriage sees Australia moving closer to a pointless, divisive plebiscite.
This public vote will cost over $160 million in tax payer money, provide a platform for hate campaigns, damage the mental health of many young LGBT individuals, and will not bind parliament to the outcome.
Many MP’s have also confirmed that they will ignore the results of a successful same-sex marriage plebiscite anyway.
Parliament has the power to enact marriage equality now, so why are we wasting time and money on something that the government will ignore?
Sign the petition today and say NO to having a plebiscite!
Tell Mr Turnbull, there’s a better way.
“To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, until death do us part.” Extending the boundaries to include same-sex couples doesn’t weaken this definition of marriage – It reinforces it.
Welcome to From the Closet to the Aisle, a project aimed at overcoming marriage inequality and towards the recognition of same-sex marriage in Australia. Here, we believe in beating this ongoing issue by educating, supporting and debunking the misconceptions associated with gay marriage. Together, we can take action and help achieve marital recognition for gay and lesbian couples!
