    I've seen it posted a few times on my fb. I just find it hilarious how it's byline is "to help you make an informed decision"

    No, I just looked, they're the closest to center. Liberals aren't too far behind, but labor is closest.

    Yeah, but at the end of the day who is anyone, you, me, Tony Abbott, anyone to say who and who should not get married. It is ok if you don't believe in marriage yourself, by what gives anyone the right to inflict their views on other people? Especially if it will have zero impact on them.

    Some lesbians are opposed to marriage on feminist grounds, says Claudia Card, a professor of philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, because they see it as an institution that serves the interests of men more than women. It is also, in her view "heteronormative", embodying the view that heterosexuality is the preferred and normal sexuality."

    Great. They are still left. I wasn't arguing who is closest to the centre.

    Why does it matter that Red considers them center and the compass considered them slightly left of center? You're nitpicking.

    I personally can not stand the idea of 'marriage' because of its roots. I think it was all about ownership etc etc too. I will NEVER get married nor change my surname to that of the father or my children...

    ...I still support Marriage equality because I understand that not everyone has that view.

    Oh mean like this? I agree absolutely pathetic. But not surprising really, this is what one does when they don't want anyone to focus on their policies and costings.

    I'm not sure if this website has been discussed, but I found it absolutely pathetic. You should not have to resort to constant swearing in order to get your message across. If you do, then your message probably isn't very strong. I can't see how anyone can think that this sort of advertising is beneficial to their cause. I guess it has had 1000's of likes, but I think that also says something about people of the left. Hate speak.

    I won't link to the actual site, but I'm sure you can fill in the blanks.

    Funny, I think the same thing about a PM candidate commenting 'does this guy ever shut up' to the PM of their country during a debate.
