BRISBANE, Australia, September 29, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) An Australian priest was spat on and cursed at based on the assumption he wont be voting for same-sex marriage.
Father Morgan Batt posted on Facebook that as he was walking down Queen Street Mall, someone stopped him and then spat on him and called him a f***ing no voter. He was identifiable as a priest because he was wearing his Roman collar.
Smile and move on was all I could do, Batt recounted. Lets pray for healing. Australia(,) this is really not us.
Batt is the vocations director for the Archdiocese of Brisbane. He is the first Australian and the first priest to have climbed and then offered Mass at the highest peaks in Europe.
The Daily Mail reported on the incident.
A non-binding, optional postal survey on the definition of marriage is underway in Australia. The government says it will act based on the results of the survey.
A man who self-identifies as gay said in a recent video that there has been bullying and absolutely vile comments from the Yes campaign, and so he is voting No. A second man agrees in the video, posted on the Facebook page Our Voice. Our Vote.
Another video from the same page shows people flipping off and protesting an Its Okay to Vote No rally.

The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground.
2 My lords, he said, please turn aside to your servants house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning. No, they answered, we will spend the night in the square.
3 But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate.
4 Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodomboth young and oldsurrounded the house.
5 They called to Lot, Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.
6 Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him
7 and said, No, my friends. Dont do this wicked thing.
8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But dont do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.
9 Get out of our way, they replied. This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! Well treat you worse than them. They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.
10 But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door.
There is only one vote in heaven and His counts for everything.
So much for “tolerance.”
Father, if you go into those areas it will lead to tears
