RE: Australia votes 'Yes for love', PM says.
A victory for what shouldn't require any battle.
What business does any government have in these sort of issues?
Hopefully people will eventually come to see freedom as the default state of existence and any restrictions as unfortunate necessities.
Obviously people should be able to marry whoever they want without the government having any say in it.

And that was largely due to the high number of immigrants in the western Sydney electorates of Blaxland and Watson, who have strong, conservative religious beliefs. The same factors repeated themselves in the only two areas to vote against same-sex marriage in Victoria, Calwell and Bruce.

Voters from Lebanese and Chinese backgrounds now outnumber those from Australian heritage in these areas; 72% of all people had both parents born overseas. 30% are from a Muslim background in Blaxland, and 23% in Watson—or 10 times the Australian national average of 2.6% Muslim.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

Fuck.

But if Australia fixes this, then the one thing the United States was slightly more progressive about will be lost, and there goes my ammunition for pestering FT...



Also, this is my 'Banjo, I do pay attention to posts about news outside the US' post for the week.

That ship has sailed.

But the Aussies did it by vote. We 'Mericans had to have it shoved down our throats via Supreme Court. We remain...slightly less progressive than everyone else...

Speak for yourself, I voted to legalize it when I still lived in Maryland.

It's a difference of perspective more than anything else.

At the moment, the laws on the books state that gays cannot get married though. They have to pass an Act amending the Marriage Amendment Bill of 2004 which specifically defined marriage in law as one man one woman.

If the laws on the books say otherwise, elect lawmakers who will rework that, or as we've done in America, grant your courts the power to overturn laws which fly in the face of constitutional liberties.
