Australia's same-sex marriage postal survey results

Australia's same-sex marriage postal survey results

The suggested laws have been received by supporters of the "yes" vote as a "kick in the teeth" to the gay community and which would roll back the clock on anti-discrimination legislation.

Gay couples would be legally turned away from wedding service providers and anti-discrimination laws created to protect LGBT people overturned under an extraordinary rival same-sex marriage bill released on Monday.

In the case of a no result, the issue of same-sex marriage will be ruled out of parliament for the remainder of the Coalition's term, as well as the next, should they remain in government.

Turnbull has endorsed a bill that would allow churches to refuse to officiate same-sex marriages.

Dear Lifehacker, there's been a lot of coverage about the voting and enrolment deadlines for the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey.

No matter what the result is, this day is a wonderful time for all Australians who have worked hard to achieve marriage equality to come together in support.

Before announcing the postal survey, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull pledged that if the result in the postal survey was a yes, then he'd seek to introduce legislation to legalise same-sex marriage by Christmas. Liberal senator Dean Smith, who has authored a bill which would legislate marriage equality, has asked Parliament to begin the debate on Thursday. But there's still a key question: if the country does the right thing and votes Yes, when will we actually get marriage equality?

"I think we're all on the same path".
