    Exclamation Shorten to move private member's bill on marriage equality

    Bill Shorten will move a private member's bill on marriage equality in Parliament on Monday.
    Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has announced his intention to introduce a private member's bill in Parliament next week over marriage equality.
    Deputy Leader Tanya Plibersek will second the motion.
    The news came after Ireland voted in favour of marriage equality in a historic referendum.
    Mr Shorten voiced his support for Ireland's decision on Twitter on Saturday.
    "Time for Australia and our Parliament to embrace marriage equality. Congratulations Ireland," he said

    So exciting!! I just saw Nine News had posted about this.. and stupid me went and read a few comments which of course left me disgusted.

    How people can say
    I am open minded, but I don't agree with gay marriage or same sex parenting.
    (actual sickening quote) is beyond me.


    Equal rights, yah baby!!

    It looks like the ALP might be trying to steal The Greens' thunder.http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politi...25-gh93ja.html

    Hopefully a 2 pronged approach will have a bit more clout.
