Same-Sex Marriage Could be Coming to Australia Soon

Senator Dean Smith confirmed that he is drafting a bill to legalise same-sex marriage in Australia.

Many MPs want the bill debated when the Australian parliament returns in August. This comes after a new poll suggested Australian voters want to go to the polls for same-sex marriage, rather than let politicians have a free vote in parliament.

Senator Smith, who is openly gay himself, has been seeking to end the “embarrassment” of the nation and legalise same-sex marriage.

Leader of the opposition, Bill Shorten, has voiced support in The Australian: “We’re going to be in parliament for a number of weeks for the rest of this year. We can just get on and have the vote.

“Quite frankly this issue’s been talked to death. I think many Australians are now sick and tired of it.

 

“The Prime Minister knows what should be done but he doesn’t have the ticker to do it.”

Shadow Assistant Minister for Treasury Matt Thistlethwaite argued that the people of Australia are ready for equal marriage.

“I think it’s instrumental that the majority of Australians want marriage equality and more importantly they expect it to occur.

“They expect at some stage over the next few years that we’re going to have marriage equality in Australia.”

Despite overwhelming public support, right-wing Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has repeatedly blocked votes in Parliament on same-sex marriage.

Church of Scotland expected to approve of same-sex marriage

Original story from Gay Times Magazine.

 

The Church of Scotland may soon offer support to marriage equality.

Same-sex marriage has been legal in Scotland since December 2014, but an exemption in the law means that individual churches are able to choose whether or not they want to perform such unions.

The Kirk’s General Assembly will gather in Edinburgh on Thursday 25 May to discuss how the church can approach same-sex marriage and also attempt to make amends with the LGBT+ community.

A report prepared for the General Assembly invites the church to apologise “individually and corporately” for discrimination that has been enforced by them in the past.

Moderator Designate the Reverend Dr Derek Browning said: “On Thursday afternoon the theological forum will be bringing a report to the General Assembly, and this year what they’re asking to do is for the assembly, first of all, to consider making an apology to the gay community for things that have have been said in the past and the assembly will have to make up its mind on that.

“But also it’s going to be asking our legal questions committee to see what the issues are round about allowing ministers to perform same sex marriage if they choose to do so, and equally for safeguards for those who, for conscience sake, feel that this is not something they can do.”
