Australian opposition leader will fight acceptance of same-sex marriage

Catholic World News - December 07, 2011

The leader of Australia's parliamentary opposition has indicated that he will rally opposition to an effort to approve legal recognition of same-sex marriage.

Tony Abbott brushed aside demands for a "conscience vote," which would free voting representatives from party discipline, when the proposal is introduced next year. He said that the opposition would unite against the measure, promising that "there will be a strong majority support for the traditional position."
