AUDIO: Senator Abetz regrets media’s loss of objectivity in same-sex marriage debate

The Pitcairn Islands, Ireland and the US Supreme Court decision are all same-sex marriage stories we’ve heard about in the past couple of weeks. Senator Abetz, leader of the government in the Senate, asks where the media voices were when more than 300,000 protested against same-sex marriage in Italy, the Austrian parliament voted down change by a margin of 110 to 26, and 31 US States voted by democratic referendum to put man/woman marriage in their constitutions before being overruled by courts. In his Sydney Morning Herald Article and ABC AM interview, he questions why Pitcairn Islands, with a population of 48 and no gay couples, was the leading story over Austria and Italy. He also questions the democratic process in the US Supreme Court’s ruling on same sex marriage, and confirms his stand with the Liberal party position that marriage is between a man and woman.
