“Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has urged Australians to say yes in the postal survey as thousands packed out Sydney’s CBD to rally for same-sex marriage. …

Mr Turnbull pointed to the fact that same-sex marriage had already been legislated for in 23 countries, including several with which Australia has close cultural affinities.

‘In any one of those nations, has the sky fallen in? Has life as we know it come to a halt? Has traditional marriage as we know it been undermined? The answer is no.’ …”

John Anderson argues for a No vote:

“We need to be honest, and we have the right to ask the hard questions. The evidence here and abroad suggests that it would be naïve to think it’s simply about marriage…”

What’s changed in Britain since same-sex marriage?:

“I urge every Aussie to examine the evidence, analysis the results and be clear about what you’re voting for. If it was solely marriage, it would worth preserving. It’s infinitely more. …” –David Sargeant at Spectator Australia.
