    Jus to say that this legislation seems fine for the Commonwealth. Care services can be commissioned by agents of an Authority and cannot be frustrated by the provider who may not like LGBTI customers. However, the provider retains the ability to discriminate on the basis of healthcare, education and employment. Ummmm. Sounds dodgy to me. Is there an Australian overview of this legislation?

    Long overdue!

    Now after the Election (due sometime in November 2013) what are the policies of the main political parties is to keep the ban on same sex marriages in Australia since 2004. No change, time to vote for the Greens I say!

    A whole list of the political parties policy positioning on marriage equality:

    Labor – status quo (no change)
    Liberal and National – status quo (no change), exact same as Labor
    Greens – full marriage equality federally (and at a state level if constitutional)
    CDP (Christian Democratic Party-Fred Nile Group), SFP (Shooters And Fishing Party) and the DLP (Democratic Labor Party)- status quo (no change) and plus a constitutional amendment to the Australian Constitution banning same-sex marriages forever
    Clive Palmer Party – referendum on same sex marriage.
    Lamington Party – supports same sex marriage
    The Democrats (yes they are still here) – supports same sex marriage
