Gash adamant in her opposition to same sex marriage

GILMORE MP Joanna Gash will not be supporting a bill allowing same-sex marriage when it is discussed in federal parliament, regardless of whether or not the Coalition allows a conscience vote on the issue.The government has allowed its MPs to have a conscience vote on the bill, and while Opposition Leader Tony Abbott says the Coalition will be voting against the bill, there are growing calls within its ranks for its MPs to also be allowed a conscience vote.However Mrs Gash said the conscience vote would not change her opinion.“I’ve always been brought up believing marriage is between a man and a woman, and I don’t want to change that,” she said.Mrs Gash said she had not been part of calls for a conscience vote on the issue as, “I have always been against same sex marriage.”She said she supported same sex couples having civil unions.“If they want to have a union then so be it, that’s great, but not a marriage,” Mrs Gash said.This story Administrator ready to work first appeared on Nanjing Night Net.
