Appearing Sunday on Sky News, the head of the Australian Christian Lobby declared that allowing gay couples to marry may lead to people questioning his sexuality.

While a large majority of Australians support marriage equality, lawmakers have been reluctant to change the nation's marriage laws to include gay couples. A nonbinding public vote on the issue has been proposed, though many lawmakers have said they will not abide by the outcome of such a plebiscite.

The group's Lyle Shelton insisted that allowing gay couples to marry affected his marriage because it could no longer be assumed that “millions of people like myself are married to women.”

“That affects me straight away,” Shelton said. “People no longer assume that I am married to a woman. I have to explain myself.”

When asked whether he was worried people would think he's gay, Shelton insisted that the terms of his marriage would change.
