    In regard to Lucy's comments above. I think you are neglecting the Christian ALP voters. Gillard was specifically asked this question from a Christian group. I can't see this being a vote winner for Labor, but there will be 'traditional' Labor voters that may well have to jump ship over this move (amongst others) towards the Greens.
    I genuinely don't believe that even the majority of Christian voters would have made their decision based solely on Gillard's position on same sex marriage. When I say Gillard's, I mean her Govt's. I don't think her own position has changed - that's why she pushed so hard for a conscience vote and not a blanket change in their platform.

    Just on the 'slippery slope' idea, if one type of marriage causes a slippery slope towards different sorts of marriage, then so does hetero marriage. Solution, no-one gets married.

    Marriage has been around for 1000s of years. I think it has proven that the slope is not very slippery when limited to heterosexuals.

    Lucy, you can believe what you want. Are you a Christian? If not, you probably aren't in the best position to speak on their behalf.

    Polygamy has also been around for 1000s of years, gay marriage is clearly not going to cause a slippery slope towards it since gay marriage has not been around for 1000s of year. It now points us back to hetero marriage being a slippery slope, or perhaps polygamy was a slippery slope towards hetero marriage.

    Father - please don't be so naive as to think the Government won't have done extensive polling on this. Especially with respect to the Christian vote.

    Even the Greens have said churches won't be forced to conduct marriages they feel are not in accordance with their beliefs. So unless a church feels theologically comfortable with marrying a same sex couple they don't have to. In the same way they don't have to marry a couple now if they don't feel comfortable doing it.

    It's then exactly the same sort of marriage as a couple who choose to be married by a celebrant or in a registry office now.

    I'm Christian and it's got my vote

    God hates the sin not the sinner... But that's another story...

    Also, treat others how you want to e treated.. So if you deny marriage to anyone, then why should you be allowed to marry?

    Homosexuality exists in hundreds of species. Homophobia exists in only one. So which one is abnormal?
