Abbott insists marriage equality a threat to religious freedom after Brandis calls it a ‘trick’
The Guardian
21 August 2017

Brandis has said that the bills promoted by him and fellow Liberal senator, Dean Smith, to legalise same-sex marriage contain “very extensive protections of religious freedom”, in addition to the constitutional right of freedom of religion.

Seselja said he “respectfully disagrees” with Brandis. “If you look around the world, issues of religious freedom has flowed when we’ve seen a change to the definition of marriage,” he said.
