"Australians are sick of excuses and they're sick of delays", Entsch said.
Turnbull told Parliament that while nothing in the bill threatened religious freedoms, he wanted more reassurances for the millions of Australians who oppose marriage equality. Government minister Peter Dutton, a leader among hard-right lawmakers in the conservative government, said his fellow leading gay-marriage opponents in Parliament agree they should not stop the bill from becoming law while arguing over protecting views of gay-marriage opponents.
"When this law is passed, we should declare we are no longer a nation of people who voted no, or people who voted yes - we are simply Australians one and all", he said. The votes were not counted because the majority wasn't questioned.
More than 100 MPs spoke on the legislation after it was tabled in the House of Representatives. Several amendments being proposed would expand those exemptions, but Dutton and other lawmakers expect all amendments would be rejected.
