The prime minister indicated only holding a plebiscite would lead to a parliamentary vote.
"There is no question that the fastest way, the way to guarantee that there is a vote in the parliament on gay marriage in this parliament, is to support the plebiscite," Mr Turnbull told ABC TV.

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.

The simple fact remains though that not every relationship is marriage.
