While we’re waiting, look back over my posts tagged Vote Yes!
The Chicken Littles are doing their best to spike the result, should it be YES! Their case really has been utter nonsense. As I wrote in September:
First, just to make it plain, I do not believe that every opponent of same-sex marriage is a homophobe. Indeed there are examples of same-sex couples who will themselves choose NO in the current Postal Survey. Nor do I think that Israel Folau has no right to his views compared with David Pocock, to confine ourselves to Rugby players for the moment. Naturally, though, I do hope that there are many more David Pococks in the Postal Survey!
Second, I commend careful reading of Legal Eagle’s thoroughly thoughtful post.
But when it comes to the NO case as it now so often appears, I still cannot but see it as other than rampant Chicken Little. Or slippery slope-ism. That the question is essentially a simple one seems to get lost.

And here is another of my September posts: Reject Chicken Little!
Australia says YES!The Australian people have voted. Same-sex marriage will be legalised in Australia by Christmas if the Turnbull Government sticks to its promise.The official results are emphatic: 61.6 per cent of all Australians voted to change the law. Every state and territory voted Yes.Only 17 electorates in the whole country voted No.
