If marriage equality was so important, why not have the plebiscite?

If marriage equality was so important, why not have the plebiscite?

A:

The plebiscite amounted to a $175 million public opinion poll. Politicians wouldn’t even agree to make the result binding. Now we can just ask them to do their jobs and have a vote in Parliament.

Also, imagine growing up an LGBTI kid in a small town, and seeing months of advertising against your rights to equality, love and happiness. Or being the child of a lesbian or gay couple and seeing months of taxpayer-funded adverts telling you that your family is wrong. Lots of mental health experts asked the government not to do this.

Questions you can ask:
Do you think our politicians should be given a chance to vote their conscience on this, and we can get it done tomorrow?
