Tasmania's Catholic Church has described an anti-discrimination complaint against a marriage booklet it distributed as an attempt to silence the institution.

Transgender activist and Federal Greens candidate Martine Delaney has lodged a complaint about the Church's booklet bearing the slogan "don't mess with marriage", which was handed out at all Catholic schools in Australia.

She also wanted the Catholic Church in Tasmania to implement a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex awareness program for all staff and students within the Catholic education system.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has visited Tasmania to help rally the troops ahead of a looming state poll, but there was no escaping national issues, with a homegrown senator poking fun at the citizenship saga plaguing the Government.The booklet stated marriage should be a "heterosexual union between a man and a woman" and changing the law would endanger a child's upbringing.Catholic Archbishop of Hobart, Julian Porteous, said in a recorded statement the Catholic Church had a positive vision of human sexuality it believed provided a way to authentic human happiness.Political analyst Richard Herr said it showed the Government "hasn't been doing its homework". Meeting nice single men in Tasmania can seem hopeless at times — but it doesn't have to be!Political confidence took a knock when the Liberal's "three amigos" and one senator fell to Labor at last year's federal election, with Tasmanian party director Sam Mc Questin admitting the party had been "massively outgunned" by union campaigns and left-wing lobby group Get Up, which targeted the northern seat of Bass.
