So the Liberal/National Party think it is ok to spend $122 million on a non-binding postal vote on same-sex marriage, equality and basic human rights.

Unfortunately it has become the ‘norm’ to hear the likes of Abbott and Bernardi spruik their right-wing religious ramblings and spread their anti-equality message.

A comparison with Abbott and Bernardi with Rex Tillerson’s description of Trump as a moron is uncanny.

Now we have the Anglican Church spending over $1 million in support of the anti-equality SSM no vote.

You would think that this tax-free religious business would be more generous with the parishioners money and spend it wisely on the homeless or domestic violence sufferers.

I would think that there are some Anglicans out there who are as equally outraged.
