But RR you're probably right; given it's a social issue, and as you say, doesn't affect or involve most people, it doesn't warrant a plebiscite. (I personally get excited by "having a say", but that's my own issue!).
If a plebiscite were to go ahead, I have no doubt there would be overwhelming support for marriage equality. And yes, there is something very distasteful about the government having to fund a campaign based on bigotry and intolerance. But how do you get around that? (In the event of a plebiscite I mean). The government cannot fund one campaign only. You start doing that and you no longer have a free and democratic situation. I guess you have to have faith in the wisdom and judgment of the Australian people.
