Marriage debate gets ugly

August 22, 2017

Federal politicians have weighed in on the allegations of controversial posters seen in Melbourne advocating the 'No' case.  

Prime Minister Turnbull said most of those who oppose same-sex marriage were not homophobic, adding "Don't be distracted by a handful of extreme and unpleasant posters or flyers."

Australian Conservatives senator Cory Bernardi pointed out foul play in the Yes camp.

UPDATE (28/8/17): Herald-Sun journalist Andrew Bolt has used his blog to question whether the whole poster story was fake news. Nobody can yet produce evidence the alleged poster was in fact displayed anywhere in Melbourne on the asserted day. Bolt said "the frenzied untruths that followed — with photographic evidence even faked by Channel 10 — only confirm the gay-marriage lobby and their media mates are the real hatemongers".
