Federal Liberal MPs Tim Wilson and Andrew Hastie are the unlikely stars of a debate sponsored by the Bible Society of Australia and Coopers Brewery.
The moderated debate was shot in the grounds of Canberra’s Parliament House, and shows Mr Wilson, an openly gay agnostic, and Mr Hastie, a Christian conservative, debating marriage equality while drinking Coopers Premium Light beer.
Titled “Keeping it Light”, the video is part of a joint campaign between the Adelaide brewer and Bible Society Australia “to reach even more Australians with God’s word”.
Gays, although generally averse to dramatic posturing, retaliate:
A couple of points:
- No Australian male has ever thrown out perfectly drinkable beer;
- Dumping beer already paid for doesn’t harm Coopers;
- You’ve made a mess that someone needs to clean up.
