Australian TV presenter asks "Why are we stopping people from loving each other?"
It comes after the Australian Parliament voted to block a free vote on the matter.
That's despite the majority of MP's supporting equal marriage, and the majority of the Australian public supporting it.
Today Presenter Karl Stefanovic began by saying: "A non binding, non-compulsory postal vote is complete BS."
Referring to plans for a plebiscite, which would allow the public a vote on same sex marriage, but the government would be under no legal obligation to carry out the decision.
Stefanovic went on the say:
"In my opinion there have been far too many column inches, far too much airtime, far too much taxpayer money wasted on an issue I believe should be decided in Parliament."
"Let's get on with it....Let's look at this simply confidently and compassionately. Why are we stopping people from loving each other? In a world where we should be celebrating love over hate, this decision is a no-brainer."
"Two people who want to share their lives together, love the big events as a union, and the small moments in life."
"Vote in Parliament and say yes to gay marriage, and lets live happily ever after."
