In a three-page letter sent home to parents, Sunrise Christian School principal Shane Hosking talked about the upcoming postal vote on same-sex marriage in Australia and asked them to vote "no".

Government officials say the mail-in poll will cost about 97 million USA dollars.

'I work at the Australia Post in Chatswood and I'm using a torch to check all ballots and throw out ALL no votes, ' Mr Nolan captioned the image. Ballots have gone out by mail in a campaign that will last almost two months.

A postal survey on the subject is to be held Down Under between September and November, with the Australian Rugby Union behind the "Yes" campaign.

Australian tennis great Margaret Court recently sparked a similar backlash by expressing her opposition of same-sex marriage.

A Sydney man claims he has received death threats after joking about being an Australia Post worker and throwing out same-sex surveys marked 'no'. She said the relevant law, "on its proper construction, did authorise the Finance Minister to make the determination". We are both going on holidays but only one shall return.

"We'll keep the statistics under strict embargo and very few people - I'm talking less than a handful - will know the result before it's published".

The legislation was introduced because the survey is not covered by the usual safeguards governing elections in Australia.

Keeping the marriage act as it is will protect the weakening of marriage as we know it.

But two past conservative prime ministers, Tony Abbott, who remains a government lawmaker, and John Howard, both oppose the change.

Both sides of the debate fired the starting guns on Thursday afternoon, promising to run respectful campaigns.

"It is precisely because parliament should reflect the will of the people that the people are entitled to know what, if anything, the government will do on protections before they vote", Mr Howard said. And I think parental rights should be respected, ' he told Buzzfeed.
