This is a great article and articulates clearly what most of us have all known for sometime, that the majority (including the majority of Christians) have been in support of marriage equality. 

The treatment of "marriage equality" like a lot of other major issues (climate change, universal health cover, tertiary education, treatment of assylum seeker and their detention etc) by our politicians illustrates a fundamental hypocrisy in our political system. Despite the political class continually "banging on" about how lucky we are live is such a "democratic country" their own actions and policy positions are in fact often anti democratic. Democracy has at its core the concept "that the will of the majority is paramount". Can anyone recall in recent time a major policy position that reflected the will of the of the majority? I can't think of any, it seems to me most policy positions in "our democracy" are driven by the ideology of specific politicians, some influential lobby group or the postulations of vocal sections of the community which are limited to specific electorates that may determine the outcome of a given election.

Perhaps you can think of lots of examples where I am wrong but I know for sure the treatment of the issue of "marriage equality" in Australia is not an example of a health democracy at work.
