This goes against my faith / churches shouldn’t be forced to marry gay and lesbian couples

A:

Civil marriage is different and distinct from religious marriage. Rest assured that no religious group will be forced to marry a lesbian or gay couple against their beliefs — just like some won’t marry people who are divorced.

Marriage equality won’t take anything away from the religious freedom of those who oppose it, but it will restore and uphold the religious freedom of those who support it. Over 100 prominent Christian ministers, including several Anglican bishops, have spoken out publicly in support of marriage equality. And research shows most Australians of faith support marriage equality.

Questions you can ask:
(If you are a person of faith) What my faith teaches me is that God is love. Is that something you believe too?
