Catholic Archbishop Anthony Fisher of Sydney recently urged followers to vote against the legalization of same-sex marriage in Australia during the postal survey, saying that changing the law would mean discrimination… against Christians.

Fisher went further, though, and said that the government should “keep out of the friendship business and out of the bedroom,” according to the Guardian.
I couldn’t agree more. The government should keep out of the bedroom. That’s exactly why consenting adults should be allowed to marry whomever they would like regardless of sex or gender.
“The state has no business telling us who we should love and how, sexually or otherwise,” [Fisher] told the St Mary’s Cathedral congregation.
It sounds like he’s quoting from the pro-LGBTQ playbook, but he actually thinks this is an argument against the legalization of gay marriage. He believes allowing people to love who they want is telling them what to do, I guess.
