Tsunami-sized backlash predicted against ALP over gay marriage

Former ALP Minister Barry Cohen, writing in The Australian, predicts a massive backlash against his party on their decision to change their policy on marriage. In the article, he said this issue would determine how he votes:

“I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman – full-stop. Neither my first lady nor I will budge on this and we will vote accordingly. Why? Because we believe that marriage as now defined is the basis for family life and has been for thousands of years. We want it to remain so.”

While the language of this article is strong (please excuse the expletive), the sentiments are sound.
