WA Liberal Senator Dean Smith to introduce same-sex marriage bill this week

Liberal Senator Dean Smith: If 'yes' gets up we'll start gay-marriage debate within days

According to the Australian the Paterson bill could be tabled in parliament as early as Wednesday and debated at the Coalition party room in two weeks, although Smith has said he will introduce his bill on Thursday, immediately after the survey result.

If the "yes" vote does garner a majority, same-sex marriage could be legalised by the end of the year, with Turnbull previously saying he expected parliament to respect voters' wishes and act quickly.

If the result is 'no, ' Turnbull has said it will be off the agenda as long as the Liberal Party is in charge.

"If the result is yes, our politicians will need to follow through on a yes result by passing a fair bill that supports true equality".

'Australia's anti-discrimination laws were amended in 2013 to enact important protections for LGBTI people in recognition of the unacceptable levels of discrimination.

Ardern admits she may be seen as "an irritant" over Manus Island
A substantial discussion has not yet happened - Ms Ardern will now bring it up when the pair meet in the Phillipines this week. I think it's clear that we don't see what's happening there as acceptable, that's why the offer's there'.

"I don't believe Australians would welcome, and certainly the government does not. discrimination that is illegal, that is unlawful today", he said. The legislation allows clergy and religious organisations to refuse to marry gay couples.

A handful of ministers backed the sentiments expressed in Senator Paterson's rival bill, including Resources Minister Matthew Canavan and Assistant Treasurer Michael Sukkar, who have supported the "no" side.

Mr Goodenough said the alternative Bill could also be introduced into the Senate this week. "I don't think their votes should mean we shouldn't have same-sex marriage, but I do think that their freedoms should be protected and I think my bill is a bill that best does that", he said.

"It's very straightforward, if there is a "yes" vote, then we'll facilitate a private member's bill to legalise same-sex marriage, and if there's a "no" vote, we won't, that's it", Turnbull said.

"The Dean Smith Bill covers who could marry, and could refuse to marry. In the future, could they be taken to court?"

China's Industrial Production Slows in October
Property investment in October alone rose 5.6 per cent from a year earlier, according to Reuters calculations based on the data. The government has said the economy remains on track to deliver on its growth target of "around" 6.5%.

But they have been roundly rejected by other ministers, including the country's chief law officer, Attorney-General George Brandis.

Commercial operations would be able to turn down bookings or business with both those who support marriage equality and those who believe in the traditional definition of marriage.

"There is no apology for the fact that the Bill does not address free speech or parental rights - because it's a Bill about marriage equality".

This legislation echoes fears voiced by the "no" campaign in Australia, which promoted myths that same-sex marriage would lead to "compulsory" gay sex education courses as well as cross-dressing kids.

"There will be no he or she, no husband or wife, no father, mother - all these words will be gone", the Perth-based Christian pastor said.
