He's not backing down despite almost 9000 people signing former NRL player Tony Wall's petition to "remove LGBTIQ politics out of the awesome sport of Rugby League".
'I'm gonna go harder, I'm going to love'.
Senior Liberals are at odds over a planned performance of Macklemore's (MACK-le-MORE) song Same Love, which promotes same sex marriage.
"It's one of his most popular songs, and for Mr Abbott or anyone else to say that it should be banned I think is a weird thing to say".
"We have seen political correctness run riot on a whole host of issues, but this is the first time that the Australian public have been asked to cast their verdict on all of these developments", he said.
Fortunately for the rapper, the NRL have also got his back, arguing that fans would "expect nothing less" than to hear him perform his signature songs, including pro-gay anthem Same Love.
Mr Abbott, a vocal same-sex marriage opponent, said the National Rugby League (NRL) should not be politicised.

He also spoke about former team-mate Kylian Mbappe, who reportedly snubbed Manchester City to sign for Paris Saint-Germain. Manchester City take on Crystal Palace at the Etihad on Saturday 23 September hoping to build upon a rich vein of form.
"Same Love" is one of Macklemore's biggest hits, and it is indeed about same-sex marriage. "The fans would not expect anything less".
The Grammy-nominated song became an anthem for same-sex couples around the world, reaching No 5 in Billboard's Top 40 in the United States and No 1 in both Australia and New Zealand in 2013.
He said, as a football fan, he doesn't want a "PC lecture" on what way people should vote in the referendum.
Macklemore told USA media he'd been receiving lots of tweets from "angry old white men" about the issue.
Former PM Tony Abbott for example, is one such idiot chiming in with his blatant hypocrisy, and now Macklemore himself has returned serve, appropriately calling those kicking up a stink "angry old white dudes".
Macklemore is not interested in their protests and has vowed to play the song no matter what.
