It has been suggested we need a plebiscite on gay marriage in Australia.
The same article also cites a Crosby Textor poll that suggest that 70% of The Australian population supports gay marriage.
We know there is widespread popular support for this measure just as there is for legalising euthanasia. We don’t need referenda or plebiscites to confirm this.
What we need is some political courage in Canberra and Spring Street.
And what we need even more than that is political leaders who are prepared to implement the will of the people rather than saying “I don’t believe in it, so it’s not going to happen.”
Particularly when they are total at the touch of the bulk of the Australian people.
