Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has campaigned in the federal seat of Fremantle without the Liberal candidate at his side after the political aspirant's views about gay marriage emerged.
Sherry Sufi reportedly posted musings online - which have since been taken down - claiming same-sex marriage will lead to polygamy.
"I hope he's out there engaging with the people of Fremantle and doing good door-knocking," Mr Turnbull told reporters in Henderson on Monday when asked why Mr Sufi was not accompanying him.
Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.

True marriage offers true equality for children. Every child comes from and needs BOTH a Mum and a Dad. Every human being has dignity and deserves respect. All sorts of relationships can be respected at law without having to change marriage laws. In fact that has been the case legally for many years. The simple fact remains though that not every relationship is marriage.
