Liberal President of the NSW Legislative Council Don Harwin overstepped the mark today when he made a submission to to a federal inquiry into gay marriage.
Mr Harwin wrote in his submission that ''civil unuons are not an adequate substitute for full equality in marriage for same-sex partners''. He is wrong to imply that homosexual couples have the right to alter an existing age-old institution. Mr Harwin should not misuse his position to attempt to over-rule the Federal Coalition and its leadership.
An interesting question for Harwin by the way would be 'Do you support marriage between three people' and 'Do you support marriage between a man and a cat?'
President of the NSW Legislative Council, Don Harwin
