I'll give the Australian Labor Party and the Greens a third opportunity to respond to the issue of whether charities holding firm to the existing definition of marriage will not be prejudiced in any way, shape or form by a change in the definition of marriage. Where do the Australian Labor Party and the Greens political party stand on that issue? And if, after being asked three times, they remain silent three times I think the Australian people, sadly, have the answer. The fear that they describe as baseless is, in fact, very well founded, because the Australian Labor Party and the Greens are not willing to commit themselves to the defence of charities that hold firm to the current definition of marriage.
