    I am very impressed that Tasmania has taken the lead in the important issue of marriage equality, especially since they started on the back foot with some of the more antiquated laws on homosexuality. to the Apple Isle

    Sadly Qld seems to be regressing to the 50's in this matter, without the benefit of the fabulous clothes.

    And for anyone who has an issue with gay marriage, i suggest they don't get one.

    But hopefully, if this passes trough Upper House, then some other states will follow. Would be amazing if Campbell Newman stopped following the freaking ACL's desires and started bringing QLD into the 21sr century
    According to what I've heard - Newman actually supports same sex marriage .. but the PARTY doesn't .. so since he has been elected - he has refused to comment on the topic, other than to say (very badly paraquoted) "the liberal party does not support same sex marriage"

    You can still be a traditionalist though, Father

    Allowing same-sex marriage isn't going to impact on your views, your marriage or your life. So why not allow those in same-sex relationships to marry. There are, after all, religious homosexuals who would like to marry under the sanction of their God.

    I always find it interesting that same sex marriage is a no-no based on tradition, but marriage using a celebrant is ok...

    My parents married in a courthouse, exactly 7 days before my sister was born after living in sin for heaven knows how long. They are still happily married. But surely their non-traditional wedding is the same as same-sex people in love? IMHO Being outside of 'tradition' just means we're learning and progressing as a society.

    pretty sure traditionalists weren't happy with women getting to vote either ... but it happened ... *shrugs* hopefully progression will continue to happen .. I think its truly sad that this discrimination has occurred for so long

    Fortunately definitions change to reflect social changes (or at least catch up with social changes). It's staggering to think that divorce wasn't allowed in Ireland until 1997
