    I’d dearly love to see gillard give the catholic right the finger and do the right thing regardless. Sadly she is still a politician

    Come on, Aussies come on, come on, come on Aussies come on!

    (Aussie speaking here – bout timewe joined the 21st century.)

    I don’t know that the equal marriage rights bill will get up -but I really, really hope it will.

    Let’s join the 21st century and be on the right side of history .. Oh & y’know :

    LOVE = LOVE. Period.

    lets be on the side of love and eequality for all. is that really so flippin’ hard!?

  • StevoR

    Also .. why the flip NOT?

    Why the blazes shouldn’t we allow people who love each other deeply to committ and marry whatever their genders?

    (Angering an imaginary, non-existent sky fairy aside?)

    Canada has had marriage equality for quite a few years now. As a Canadian, I can assure you that there has been no issues in all those years – no mass declaration that straight marriages were illegal, no crashing thunder and voice from on high denouncing it.

    We have had incidents of dogs and cats living together, but since that’s been the case since at least Confederation, nobody’s particularly concerned about that.

      Hi Lordshipmayhem

      I filmed this video. I am interested to know what the Canadian experience was of getting this through your parliament. The big question here seems to be that gay marriage will offend Catholics and fundamentalist Christians. Was that also the case in Canada? What sort of opposition did it have there? How did activist groups manage to successfully lobby parliamentarians on this issue?

        Good connection to make – if LordshipMayhem doesn’t respond, I’ll send them an email to point out this inquiry. :)
