In this Majority Report clip, Australia also has reactionary homophobes in government.
“Tasmanian Senator Eric Abetz has said he believes there is evidence people who are homosexual can become heterosexual.
Senator Abetz, who campaigned fiercely against the Safe Schools bullying program, said he believed the media needed to be more balanced on reporting of sexuality issues and slammed business leaders over their campaign for same-sex marriage.
In the latest exchange, Senator Abetz was asked if people who are homosexual could switch to become straight.
