Folau creates storm with same-sex marriage tweet

Folau creates storm with same-sex marriage tweet

"We have undertaken a thorough review ahead of delivering the survey and will have additional security measures in place during the process", an Australia Post spokesperson told The New Daily.

A POLL has found little more than half the population of the Cowper electorate supports same sex marriage.

As marriage equality surveys begin to land in mailboxes around Australia, with the first lot mailed out on Tuesday, and the "yes" and "no" advertising campaigns in full swing, concerns over the security of the controversial postal votes have been raised.

National surveys have consistently shown support for that, a poll this week by Fairfax Media shows 70-percent in favor of changing the law.

The person who posted the photo said they would "be voting yes. if it will even be counted now after this stuff up".

The survey results, due in November, could prompt a non-binding vote in parliament.

"I believe all Australians deserve the same rights, regardless of who they love". "If we have to vote, let us vote "no" to gay marriage for the sake of Australia, our children and our children's children".

But a similar proportion also want legal protections for churches' rights to refuse to marry same-sex couples and to teach that marriage should be between a man and woman.

If most Australians vote "yes" to same-sex marriage the government will move to hold a parliamentary free vote on changing the marriage laws.

Former prime minister Tony Abbott - the original architect of the plebiscite and a prominent voice on the "no" side - derided Mr Shorten's promise as "elitist bullying".

"This bill won't protect against all of the hate speech we already see".

"Action must be taken", Vote NO Australia Facebook page wrote.

"No" campaigners have companied that "yes" advocates threaten their opponents in an effort to suppress dissent. Abbott is campaigning against his lesbian sister Christine Forster, a Sydney local government councilor and a member of the same conservative party.
