Folau refuses to back Wallabies' support for gay marriage

Folau refuses to back Wallabies' support for gay marriage

The government and opposition are negotiating on details of legislation to be passed by Parliament this week that would penalize campaigners who resort to hate speech during the two-month survey.

But all were held under the Electoral Act, unlike the postal survey which is being carried out by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Central Queensland could be poised to deliver a "no" vote on marriage equality if the results from ABC's Voter Compass were replicated in the Same-Sex Marriage postal survey.

This, of course, sparked a big response as people decided that Izzy should hear what they had to say as well.

Former Prime Minister Tony Abbot is one example.

Political scientist Shaun Ratcliff said there was a clear national-wide statistical trend towards larger population centres being more supportive of the marriage equality cause.

Folau's tweet also seems to have spurred some reaction from one of his global teammates as, shortly after his own public expression of disagreement on the issue, David Pocock sent out two firm tweets declaring that he will be voting yes in the public ballot.

Both sides of the debate fired the starting guns on Thursday afternoon, promising to run respectful campaigns. You think some people are beneath having rights that you personally enjoy.

Coalition for Marriage spokesman Lyle Shelton, who ordinarily runs the Australian Christian Lobby, said his campaign would focus on religious freedom and what kids were taught in schools.
