Leading Australian rugby player support equality in marriage

From samesame.com.au:

Leading Australian rugby player and committed Christian David Pocock says he and his female partner supports marriage equality law reform and “can’t see what the big deal is about it in Australia.”

In an interview in today’s New Zealand Herald, the Wallabies team flanker (pictured) said: “Being brought up in a Christian home and still identifying as Christian, I get pretty annoyed with the Christian lobbies around the world who say gay marriage destroys the family and all that kind of rubbish.

“They claim to follow someone who always stood up for the oppressed and marginalised.

“I guess it is a fear of the unknown,” Pocock, who is regarded as one of the toughest rugby players in the world, added. “If you talk to someone who doesn’t like gay people you can almost guarantee that they don’t know too many.

“These are the prejudices that you have to challenge and break down. Emma and I decided not to get legally married until our gay friends could do the same.”
