Far-right darling Milo Yiannopoulos has spoken out against marriage equality for Australia, only weeks after marrying a man himself.

Yiannopoulos married an unnamed man in Hawaii earlier this month, according to Pink News.

He is now speaking out against the same rights being afforded to Australians, repeating the same rhetoric about religious freedom that the No campaign has favoured.

“My instinct would be to vote against it,” Yiannopoulos said.

“The paramount consideration is not those gay couples—it is religious freedoms.

“I’m gay and a Catholic. The highest priority for me is making sure no church, no believer anywhere, is required to violate their religious conscience.

“My gut would be to vote against it.”

Ultra-conservative Yiannopoulos has been linked with white supremacists and neo-Nazis, according to documents published earlier this month.

His comments come as the marriage equality postal survey draws to a close, with the Australian Bureau of Statistics recommending remaining survey forms be posted this week to ensure they are received in time.

A Yes outcome from the survey could mean same-sex marriages could be performed in Australia before the end of the year, although Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has said it cannot be guaranteed.
