Comment on same-sex marriage plebiscite

Dear Editor,

Malcolm Turnbull for the first time as Prime Minister is showing some leadership as he is honouring the election commitment of the Liberal/National Party to hold a plebiscite. (It's time to show some Leadership, Issue, August 16)  I can't really see how a postal ballot could fly in the face of Australian democracy but I think a referendum would have more political clout.

Justice Kirby is throwing a hissy fit because he is afraid the plebiscite might not go in his favour.  I don't really care if Michael Kirby is able to 'marry his prince' regardless of what Malcolm Turnbull thinks as there are far more pressing issues the Australian public is concerned about like soaring electricity prices, foreign companies taking over our farms and Islamic terrorist attacks.  Australians are also concerned about the destructive ideas of Safe Schools and how it exposes small children to pornography by discussing sex.

Many Christian churches and groups are joining together in favour of standing up for traditional marriage including the Australian Christian Lobby, Coalition for Marriage  and Cory Bernardi's Australian Conservatives.

Once the legislation has passed condemnation of Christians and other conservatives will worsen like in the US and Canada.
