There sure are a lot of people getting awfully distracted by a whole lot of crap on this topic.
Personally, I couldn't give 2 shiits why some knob in Canberra got sacked by their knob boss. Maybe it was just because she was vocal about voting no, or maybe that was just the last of many indescretions. Again, I don't really care. The thing is, anybody who forms an opinion based on one half of the story doesn't know what they are talking about, or they are just an idiot all together. Either way, it doesn't have anything to do with marriage equality.
As for Andrew Bolt. If I said what I really thought about that turd I would probably be banned.
This is not a vote on whether or not gay couples should be allowed to bring up children.
This is not a vote on the Safe Schools program.
This is not a vote on the religious freedoms of some compared to others.
This is not a vote on the specifics of Unfair dismissal policy in relation to contractors.
This isn't even a vote on weather or not Andrew Bolt is a complete and utter f#@kwit. (he most certainly is)
It is incredibly simple:
Should the marriage act be changed to allow same sex couples to marry?
That is the only question that needs to be answered. The rest is just a distraction thrown in to cloud the issue.
