"It's Facebook and Twitter meets Rock the Vote for marriage equality", stated Brian Ellner, one of the initiative's founders and long-time gay rights advocate who helped spearhead the successful NY effort for marriage past year.
The long-time LGBTI rights campaigner Rodney Croome said the dip was "inevitable. given the onslaught of fear-mongering by the no side".
".It will affect Christian schools, it will affect freedom of speech".
"Obviously I will be voting no".
Social media has been flooded with people anxious that their marriage equality postal survey papers haven't arrived, pushing the Bureau of Statistics to reassure voters that their mail is indeed on the way.
If you want the person you love to be in every sense a part of your family: "votes yes.If you don't believe your relationships (or anyone else's) are second rate: "vote yes".
As the vote got underway, anti-LGBT activists have begun a divisive campaign based on tactics developed by evangelicals in the U.S., attempting to conflate the marriage vote with transgender issues and LGBT sex education.
"The yes campaign lost over 1 million votes in 10 days". "People are sitting up and paying attention".
Deputy statistician for the ABS, Jonathan Palmer, told a Senate inquiry on Friday the ABS doesn't have a policy on how to deal with such acts, and he had asked for some cases to be referred to Australian federal police (AFP).
"The focus of our campaign has been to address complacency head on, by encouraging people to vote and post", he said. "Religious freedom is fundamental and it will be protected in any bill that emerges from this Parliament".
One Twitter user said "and now there's a third".
"My real disappointment is that the government has not specified in advance exactly what these protections are going to be. they have effectively washed their hands of it all by saying they'll facilitate a private member's bill".
Mr Dutton, who like Mr Morrison is advocating a "no" vote, went further today telling Sky News it was a "decision the cabinet has taken" that the bill would be released after the survey and only if there was a majority "yes" vote.
My Pyne said those on the "no" side wanted Australians to be frightened of the "otherness in our community". It's well worth your time and it may make all the difference.
"And I am here specifically because I'm a gay man. How would I feel about the preclusion [from marriage]?"
We also know same-sex marriage will pass because of do-gooders and discrimination laws which come in effect so some can get what they want which in this case takes away the goal of male and female.
