The Greens will be opposing this amendment. This amendment would result in an absolute explosion of discrimination against LGBTI people, and it's exactly the opposite of why we are here. We are here to be debating marriage equality. We are here to be removing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer people, not to be introducing amendments and changes to the act that would result in a massive increase in discrimination.
