The Salt Shakers, a Christian fundamentalist group, have called on the owners of Marquette Turner Luxury Homes to retract their support for same-sex marriage on the Australian Marriage Equality (AME) website because same-sex marriage is against Australian law.

The Australian government has, at present, refused to grant legal recognition of overseas same-sex -˜marriages’. As this is the current law, recognising same-sex -˜marriages’ is undermining the position of the Australian government, Salt Shakers representative Jenny Stokes wrote.

We are concerned at your agreement with this stance promoted by the homosexual lobby, Australian Marriage Equality, and ask that you retract it.

Marquette Turner is one of 17 organisations, including IBM, Westpac, the Commonwealth Bank and the City of Sydney, to have registered support for same-sex marriage on AME’s website.
