Inga B. : Okay. All the homophobes and haters-armchair-critics who appeared in the comments are going to fuck themselves now, dancing cancan and smiling. I infringe the rights of homophobes, what a pity. (Rude? Bad manners? Yes.) The comments are being deleted. Upd: If you express your opinion respectfully, it's okay, even if I absolutely do not agree with you. It's not my business or anyone else's. Let's just not be such assholes.

James Wynne : Did you know, someone can not support same sex marriage, and still not be homophobic.

Graaanuf : Looking forward to my 'no' vote.

levethane : People getting mad about gay people getting married are the same as people getting mad at McDonald's if someone orders a different food item than them, it's not going to effect them in any way yet they somehow think it does..

Mithras Revisited : There is not a non religious reason to oppose marriage. Religions do not own marriage, I wish they would stop making that claim. This government needs to be thrown out at the next election.

Matt Jay : Will be posting a 'no' vote.

lhavenothingtosay : you can always count on Tim to pick a nice, high profile issue for a bit of publicity. I'm all for equal rights, and fk Cardinal Pell, but Minchin is a shameless self-promoter.

Tisnot Mynaim : I'm an admitted tiny bit of a homophobe, but I would of voted in the positive! But after seeing this vid, on principle and just as a show of a middle finger to this starving artist mother fucker and a "FUCK YOU, dont call me names," I'm now going to vote in the negative! Thanks Tim for changing my mind and helping me make my FINAL decision...... That will be a "NO, from me!!" Fucking lefties, just dont know when to shut the fuck up!

Google Google : All comments opposing same-sex marriage are just bots. Their views don't matter.

Glen Martin : Homophobic is a loaded term is it not? Because it suggests that if you do not agree with a particular line of thinking regarding such issues, then something is wrong with you. Using such terminology attempts to stifle debate and ostracise anyone who speaks to the contrary. So if there is to be open discussion then do not be afraid, but be open.

Organised Mum Life : I actually laughed quite a bit in this, it's well done. I'm voting YES.

Matthew Dunn : I am not homophobic but it was very rude when you said to shove the bible up your ass

M o e s M e m e s : Its adam and eve not Adam and Steve and if you are Adam and Steve you can Adam and LEAVE

Spiro Theodorakis : No such thing as marriage equality, just marriage between a man and woman, phobia is irrational fear. Filthy Sodomites, what next, the legalisation of pedophilia.

MAD MAN : People who are homophobic are probably just the ones who get tired of your LGBT adgenda...

Stevyster : I was gunna vote yes because its the right thing to do, but after having heard this passive agressive self promoting fucktard call my country homophobic I think I'm just gunna stay out of it and not gunna vote at all👍

Cubonica : As a member of the LGB community I'll be voting No.

Hubert Delihammer : People that will vote 'no' may not be homophobic. I will vote 'no' and I know others that will however we are NOT homophobic whatsoever. It is not about fear or intolerance of homosexuals, it is about other factors that many pro-LGBT people do not see. One big factor for me is about adopted children who need a mother/father figure in their life. I can already hear pro-LGBT activists yelling at me for making a homophobic statement however it is not. When I say this I am considering the children as the first priority and putting their needs ahead of the wish to have children.

mi cun : To all those who think marriage is between a man and a women because the bible says so marriage is not defined by the bible. Over 74% of marriages, in Australia, in 2015, did not involve a religious ceremony.

Nigerian Prince : no one lives in Australia it's just a dessert

TJO : Gay is Not a mental. Disorder..... Transgendersims and that is why unfortunately I will be voting no...

oh wow : get ready to vote for pedo rights after this is done. Gays are already creeperly obsessed with "LGBTQ+" children and pushing sexuality on little kids

Jason Nav : You homosexuals are Christianpobic, islamophobic, Jewishpobic, buddistphoic and so on .. wanna play games... you gay people discriminate every religious persons under the sun.... (I know from experience), disagreeing with two gays marrying doesn't make me a homophobe.... you think I'm scared of two gay men???? 😂

dd_ d : Why is it homophobic to be against gay marriage? Peoples values and beliefs simply suggest that marriage is between a man and a women, and so do many gays. It's ignorant to suggest that these people are now homophobic and cunts. Personally I'm fine with gay marriage as to me marriage doesn't much to me, but you cannot call peole cunts and label them if it's simply their personal opinion on what marriage means to them. The left wing need to stop labelling every person who holds a traditional value racist, sexist or homophobic.

Doctor Oswald : If The bill doesn't pass dudes, just get "married" anyway. Like, have a beautiful wedding if that's want u wanted in the first place, with a huge ceremony, but u don't have to sign any papers. Call yourselves husbands or wives. You'll be unofficially married. It's not much of a back up plan, but at least it's still a happy occasion to have.

Stacy LMFAO at H8rs : LGBTQ Marriage affects you the same way Marriage affects you now. It doesn't 99.9% of the time you don't even know they're happening. Fucking have a whinge you "vote no" bastards.

Jordan 51203 : This is called an opinion people. Everyone is entitled to one. I don't support gay marriage but I am not homophobic. I just don't think they need to get married, as a marriage in my opinion is between a man, a woman and God I'm ready for the anti Christian comments now but this is just my belief and opinion. Don't like it? Don't go on the internet

Bennyboy1985 : "OMG how do we not have SSM? It's The Current Year and the overwhelming majority of Australians support it anyway!"/ "A plebiscite is wrong because bigots will get to have their say and ensure SSM doesn't get passed!" ^ Which one is it? Regressives yet again showing their true colours... The only people more pathetic than useful idiots like Minchin are the group-thinkers who think his humour to be clever, profound or "edgy"- the kind of people who love to bash the Catholic Church for homophobic bigotry amidst cries of "OMG It's The Current Year!" while gushing over the likes of Waleed and Yassmin without daring to ask what they REALLY think of SSM (being devout followers of a certain Abrahamic faith and all- can't do that because it's racist apparently)... And let's not bother to discuss the abnormally high suicide rates for gay men (which are higher than the suicide rates for straight men, that are already high enough to be of particular concern). Let's not bother concerning ourselves with the abnormally high rates of mental health issues or its' offshoots (alcoholism, drug abuse) amongst gay men either- that's going too far down the rabbit hole. Let's not think too hard about any of the stuff that's really going to make a difference in the lives of people with sexual preferences different to ours. Instead, let's just change our Fb profile pic to a rainbow flag filter, regurgitate what the ABC, SBS and Buzzfeed says and crap on about "equality" so everybody else can see what a good, progressive little Smurf we are and tick a box next to our name as being on the "right side of history"...because that'll fix everything and then we can feel smug and clever knowing that we did our part before we go back to watching The Project or whatever low-rent reality show is serving as the latest vehicle for advertisers to flog their products to the masses...

James Taylor : The reason it is going to be a postal vote is that labour and the greens rejected the original proposal which was to have a compulsory plebiscite that everyone would have had to vote in. Whatever faults the government may have, don't blame them for ones that they don't.

Scott Mac : Who is this Tim bloke? So lets all roll over and not have a point of view opposite to others. Geez, there's so much other important sh@t going down, why do they want all the focus.

Gus Johnson : Hey i am fine, i am hetro, divorced, if Gay Couples want to go through the crap i have done, so good.. Marriage is fine, but when it Fucks Up? Welcome to crap..

MyShipsDoSink : AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!

Liz Killen : Is he a gay?

Steve Mcklowski : if being gay is normal then why are gays so rare? you wouldn't be able to find a single country where more than half of the population is gay even if you accounted for people hiding in the closet

Taylor Lebar : For god sakes out government is fucked up!

Freewheeler ! : Homophobic is just a made-up word that means nothing except as an insult. I could with greater justification and accuracy refer to all lesbians as manphobic or even penisphobic and all gay men as womanphobic or vaginaphobic. No one who uses "homophobic" as a slur can have any reasonable objection to that.

noy52 : How about we address the bigger problem first, like actually identifying Australia's first people in our constitution. The Aboriginal people of Australia still face the same plight and inequities today as they have for the past 40 years. how about we solve the larger and more pressing issue first. I'm not saying I'm against same sex marriage or anything but these issues Aboriginals face everyday have been stowed away for far to long. just as we see these issues begin to gain traction in Canberra, its overshadowed by either international or other socio-political hyperbole. all to their own i say. let Carrie marry Sally but lets not forget about the people of our own nation, who had just as much a hand in building this great country as any of our families have. two words to leave you with. IDENTIFY and RESPECT.

Joshua Barry : I do not think Homosexual union is for the good of the nation. Homosexual couples already have the exact same rights as married couples due to De Facto laws. Marriage is, and always has been, defined as a union between a man and a woman. As a Christian citizen of Australia, while I may love and seek to save Homosexuals, my loving them does not mean accepting their way of life. Vote to keep marriage as it is: beteeen a man and a woman.

Yuri Plisetsky : I'm not homophobic but I do live in Australia and I do ship yaoi >:) Halp plz

Connor kirkwood : Fuck off cunt, sex is like a puzzle 👌👈 this fits 👉👈 this doesn't nor 👌👌 this ok so play the aeroplane game and take the fuck off

St Pr80 : This is not funny. It violates my rights as a christian. Marriage is between a man and woman, always has been and always will be. Governments will not be able to tell a church they have to allow same sex marriage.

saturn580 : I support gay marriage, but there’s a degree of smugness and sanctimony coming from the ‘Yes’ camp that makes me think some of its representatives are doing the cause more harm than good. You don’t win hearts and minds by telling people who disagree with you that they’re stupid and hateful. Carry on down that path at your own peril, but don’t come crying to me if the shit hits the fan in November. If you don’t understand why people might be opposed to gay marriage, ask them. Try seeing the issue from their perspective before presenting them with your own (you’ll probably be more persuasive that way). Marriage is an ancient social institution. Don’t assume the worst about your fellow Australians just because they’re undecided or erring on the side of tradition.

Normal Guy : Them gays r alright. I'm voting no but them queers should get the same rights n can do what they want!!

TheIceyeddy : I'm voting YES to love and equality. Thumbs up if you're voting yes!!

Real Invincible Shield : how is this on trending!!!

spianny : I have the solution, don't call it marriage but another name as its a different type of relationship. One makes babies, the other doesn't :) where's my award :p

GameTime : I haven't read every comment here but from what I've read there certainly doesn''t seem to be the '63% of the Australian public support gay marriage' message that the pro gay marriage lobby have been sprouting for years ! Also, to suggest that (the yes side) a law should just be passed without democratic opinion or vote is selfish and pigheaded. Can you imagine the public backlash from the ''no'' side ? ......and they say a plebacite would be too stressful for the gays out there..........   Now we have the gay lobby saying that if the vote is ''no'', it''s because young people don''t send letters and their the ones who will vote ''yes''. Excuses Excuses.....please. Even the leftie ''Media Watch'' said that we are not getting a balanced arguement because the groups like Marriage Alliance (no vote) cannot get their adverts aired on mainstream TV because the leftie media does not support them. Look deeper. Vote no.

Punchy LightBeer : No one is scared of the gays. Vote no if you are sick of being labeled bullshit titles like homophobic if you don't conform. Also everyone is racist, fucking get over it already.

munt : A union between anything besides a man and a woman cannot be considered marriage. Same sex """marriage""" is an aberration that stands as an affront to nature and civilisation. Same sex """marriage""" serves to further undermine the purpose of true marriage, which is to form stable, biologically preferable family units so that civilisation can be sustained. Expanding the definition of marriage to include unions between two men or two women diminishes that primary function of marriage and modifies it to be hedonistic and lustful. Homosexuals have had the freedom to associate for decades now. Beyond trivial legal disputes, same sex """marriage""" serves to resolve very little at the cost of the integrity of all existing marriages under Australian law for the sake of 1-3% of the population. Certainly, this is not the end of the world either way, but should the "yes" vote win, it will be another chip away at the foundations of civilisation. Leftists can browbeat all they want, but I will not capitulate.
