In any case, even in society it's up around 65% of people believe it should already be legal. I believe it will be within the next year.

I sure do. Who am I to say no they can't marry? If two people love each other and wish to marry then awesome! I am sure they love each other the same way a man and woman do, so why not let them marry!
All for it. I would like to think if either of my children were gay that they would have the rightto marry someone they love just like a man and woman. Love is love. No one should be allowed to tell them they can't. Sure if religion doesn't want them too, then so be it (in that church) but give them the right to choose to marry outside of church in any which way they choose.

However I do think society at large is finally ready for the radical notion of gay marriage. Now to get that across to the pollies...

Latest polling of the country suggests that it is between 70-78% who are supportive of gay marriage. Which means we are catering to a very vocal minority who should, quite frankly, shut the hell up and stay out of other people's lives.
It is frightfully unfair that I could walk down the street and marry the next guy I see but those in a committed homosexual relationship cannot marry their partner. It is hateful and vile that in this day and age in a country such as ours, that this is still the case. Denying people the right to marry is abhorrent.

Yes 100%. It breaks my heart that people can't choose to marry whomever they want.

To get all political on you, this move will be made by a labor government first of all. I can't see a liberal government changing it. Secondly, of the population, x% ALWAYS vote liberal, x% ALWAYS vote labor. It's the y%, known as swinging voters, who the pollies woo. So rather than the population as a whole, it's what % of the swinging vote that supports gay marriage is what's important.
Like I said. I hate politics.

Of course. My gender shouldn't dictate whether or not my partner's gender makes our relationship 'valid'. Same goes for same sex couples in my eyes.
It's like turning around to someone and saying "You can't have your parents recognised as your parents because one is the same gender as you. That means that legally they can't be your parents".
I know that doesn't make sense and sounds stupid, but that's exactly how I feel about equal marriage rights. It doesn't make sense and sounds stupid that those rights aren't extended to everyone.
