And I should clarify... I know ultra-conservative, card-carrying Liberals who are openly gay and believe that the definition of marriage shouldn't be changed to accommodate them. I cannot understand this view, but the fact is it is their view. And it does not make them homophobic, simply against gay marriage.
I'm not even convinced Mr Rudds personal stance has changed but the labor party's position has and that's what matters.
My point still stands the fact that this pamphlet exists at all is far worse than the OP accusing the libs of creating it yet some people felt more inclined to jump on her than the actual vile content.
Even if Abbott remains anti-gay marriage his party may yet sway him.
I absolutely hate it when someone brings that argument up.
In any group of marginalized people you will find some that do not believe things should change.
My daughter is gay and I take personal offense when people say its not a pressing issue. My daughter's human rights are of great importance, all of the time.

Gives self spanking for making sweeping generalisation! Tutt tutt. Only minor sarcasm there, I genuinely should know better.
There are obviously exceptions but I still believe for the most part the anti gay marriage stance is generally, ( ) based on homophobic views.
Particularly for those not homosexual themselves..
but I would dearly love to hear some other explanations for it.
I am so disgusted by that flyer.
Violation of civil rights? Sure. Oppression, injustice, discrimination? 100%. But not homophobic.
And don't make the mistake of assuming that the people I speak of are somehow so battered and bullied that they don't believe themselves worthy, or some nonsense. These are not brow-beaten people skulking in the shadows. Your assumption that this is the only reason they could possibly be opposed is, frankly, offensive.
