The Coalition for Marriage has launched a new ad, using the platform of national television to claim they are being silenced.

The ad will be seen by millions, Pink News has reported.

It features a man expressing concern that his freedom of speech is being stifled in the marriage equality debate.

“Politicians aren’t listening. Where’s my freedom of speech?” he says.

“I’m over this politically correct nonsense.

“I’m sick of being told what to think by the thought police. Can’t say this, can’t say that.”

Far from being silenced, the Coalition for Marriage has used its substantial support from religious groups to fund a heavy ad campaign across Australia.

The group instructs its activists to play on public fears of gay sex and trans issues instead of addressing the issue of marriage equality.

The Coalition for Marriage has called the postal survey “our last stand against this radical ideology”.

“I’m going to have my say, all right,” says the man appearing in the latest ad.

“I’m going to say no.”

With just weeks remaining of the marriage equality campaign, activists on both sides are urging Australians to return their votes.

“We know that the Australian people support marriage equality, but no one can be complacent,” said Tiernan Brady of the Equality Campaign.

“It is all about getting as many surveys returned as possible.

“We call on everyone to participate and to talk to their family and friends to make sure they do to. Together, let’s get this done.”
