Coalition Party Room just decided to stand as one to preserve marriage. | Australian Christian Lobby

Moments ago, after a marathon meeting, the Coalition Party Room just decided to stand as one to preserve marriage.

This means the Liberal and National Parties will continue to vote as a bloc to oppose any attempts to redefine marriage.

This is a tremendous outcome.

I want to thank you for all your hard work over such a long time as you and tens of thousands of Australians encouraged the government to hold their ground.

Whether you emailed your MP, signed a petition, shared a campaign in church or on social media or if you visited or called your MP, this is an incredible result.

However we know the opponents of marriage will not rest.

This is a much-needed reprieve; it is not a final victory.

Coalition MPs are likely to face a torrent of abuse and vitriol from some noisy same-sex marriage campaigners over the coming days.

So it is important that we take the opportunity to now thank the Government for making this stand.

Please send a quick email to your MP thanking them for this important decision.

Please also send a message of thanks to Prime Minister Abbott for his leadership on this issue by filling out this contact form on his website.

Thank you again for all that you have done.

God bless
