Today show host Karl Stefanovic has blasted the government's decision to push through with a national plebiscite, and has implored politicians to vote in parliament in favour of same-sex marriage.

"A non-binding, non-compulsory postal vote is complete BS.. Pull your fingers out in Canberra and get on with it.."… https://t.co/kRoc20TvcG

Stefanovic also called out politicians for playing "political football", saying it was less about the issue of same-sex marriage, and more about the "chest-beating and posturing of politics".

"In a world where we should be celebrating love over hate, this decision is a no-brainer.”
