Anglican Bishop of Ballarat Garry Weatherill declares support for same-sex marriage, opposes plebiscite

From Australia-

Ballarat's Anglican Bishop Garry Weatherill has declared his support for same-sex marriage and said he opposed the Federal Government's proposed plebiscite on the issue.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull yesterday introduced legislation into the Lower House for a plebiscite on same-sex marriage to be held on February 11.

At this stage, Labor is expected to block the passage of the bill.

Bishop Weatherill told the ABC he supported "marriage equality".

"The local position of this particular bishop is for marriage equality," he said.
