The Senate Could Begin Debating Marriage Equality As Soon As Tomorrow
Mr Turnbull was responding to demands from some Liberals, led by Victorian senator James Paterson, that business owners should be able to refuse service for gay weddings based on religious or "conscientious" beliefs.
The senator also argues it would preserve the freedoms of all Australians.
"The government does not, would not countenance making legal discrimination that is illegal", Turnbull told reporters.
Senator Reynolds said that while she backed the bill, she reserved her right "to support amendments that seek to further increase religious protections".
"We will wait to see what the final bill looks like before we give a firm commitment as to how we will vote".
Brady, an Irish citizen, said he saw echoes of the historical discrimination against his own people in the religious freedoms push.
"People will be free to move whatever amendments they want and they will be debated and voted on", Mr Turnbull said. Cormann said thought the Smith bill was "a good starting position" but thought it would need improvement to "strengthen religious protections".

Paterson's bill has been slammed by human rights and law bodies.
The survey results will be announced on Wednesday, but debate is intensifying on whether Australians who would refuse to provide gay weddings with a celebrant, venue, flowers or a cake should have added protection against anti-discrimination laws.
"You could potentially see a situation where a hire vehicle company could leave their customers stranded on the way to a marriage ceremony simply because the driver held a thought or belief against it".
The press conference, by Australia head statistician David Kalisch and deputy Jonathon Palmer, will be broadcast just about everywhere and I'll bring you all the details here. "As a non-religious person, I should have no fewer rights to live my life consistent with my beliefs than anyone else".
Tasmanian marriage equality advocate Rodney Croome claimed the bill "would effectively allow businesses to hang a "no gays" sign in the window ".
The Smith bill, or the rival legislation proposed by Senator Paterson, would be subject to a series of conscience votes on both sides, requiring a majority from the collective pool of Coalition, Labor and Greens MPs.
