Marriage Equality Passes Australia’s Parliament in Landslide

Daily Beast


  • Australia’s parliament on Thursday passed a bill legalizing same-sex marriage, becoming the 26th nation to do so. The House of Representatives passed the historic legislation to a standing ovation from both parliamentarians and the public gallery. Some in the chamber started singing one of the country’s unofficial anthems: “I am, you are, we are Australian.” Fewer than five members of parliament voted against the bill. “What a day. What a day for love, for equality, for respect,” said Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. “It is time for more marriages.”

Gay man denied marriage license to run against Kim Davis

BB, thanks for the update on weirdness in our world.  Somewhere I read that Mary was the surrogate mother for a child by two fathers, one being Yahweh and the other being Joseph.  Or is it 3 fathers, if we include the Holy Ghost?

NY Times had a thoughtful article analyzing the rights of a baker vs a gay couple who wanted a wedding cake.  The author weighs the philosophical and legal nuances nicely.

You know the nice thing about civil marriage?  NO RELIGION REQUIRED!!!  The priests, rabbis, and imams can go scratch glass for all I care!  And if some gay or Lesbian couple are so deranged as to want to have their union solemnized by one such of the aforementioned, they deserve what they get for their ignorance and/or naivete.  Sorry, Daniel, but in the face of such stupidity, I have no empathy, not when what they want to cling to is the very thing that is trying to destroy them.

Finally, Jewish and Muslim leaders can agree on something!  Kumbayah and all that! 

Why a gay couple would want their homophobic priest, rabbi, or imam, to officiate at their wedding, is something I have not figured out. 

Some interesting information on marriage equality in the Economist.
