  1. Two years ago I said that it would be 10 years before we have marriage equality in Australia. This now looks certain. The States will not do anything and Abbot, who will almost certainly be our next Prime Minister (God help us) has again strongly reiterated his opposition to allowing any sort of conscience vote on the issue. Gillard could have gotten this through before the election but refuses to give way to her own bigotry.

  2. “equal marriage opponents”. Why the coded language? These people are bigots and need to be called out for what they are.

    Very sad indeed. Yet a great country in so many ways is a little behind on this curved ball. Do not become disheartened. Keep going SSM advocates.
    Our time will come.

  4. Well the modern Tasmanians are descended from settlers who thought it was a good idea to hunt down the native population on horseback and exterminate them.

    They killed every last one of them.

    They obviously haven’t moved forward much since.

      So true, Australia is a laughing stock and a complete embarrassment to the whole world!

      Time for marriage equality Australia!
