Homophobia or any discrimination of any kind has no place within a modern, civilised world let alone in Australian Politics.
Telling an online forum run by the Catholic Church that a true union only occurs in heterosexual vaginal intercourse and that homosexual unions must be seen as destructive behaviours to be actively discouraged is something that should not be tolerated by anyone.
"They are addicted to these behaviours which are harmful. As a heroin addict is addicted to a behaviour that is harmful and keeps on doing it. It's exactly the same." Philip Pocock. Statements such as these shall not be tolerated by Australians who stand for equality for all men and women no matter their skin colour, race, religion or financial status.
Love is Love and no one has the right to discriminate on love.
