    The word Marriage Equality is a little deceiving in my opinion…..why not say it as it really is….same sex marriage and be done with it and be proud.

    • Michael Barnett says:

      Aside from same-sex attracted people, people who do not identify exclusively as male or female are denied the right to marry. The term same-sex marriage does not include those people. Hence the need for a broader and more representative term, describing the removal of gender from the Marriage Act.

    Oops. did I miss something again??? Didn’t God say that it was an abomination??? Oh well, if the Pope can change Gods word why not everyone else! With the exception of me I definitely don’t want God’s job, He knows what He’s doing cause the rest of the world is

  3. Michael Barnett says:

    Love will always win out over bitterness, bigotry and intolerance.

  4. Adrian Jackson says:

    Well dont to the seven “liberal” minded federal Liberal parliamentarians and some others who are silent for the moment who supported a gay marriage vote in federal parliament.

    • Lynne Newington says:

      I recall when gay meant happy and even a girls name…..So many handles these day’s when in reality it’s simply called same sex what’s the problem?
      In civil marriages the specific word equality can already be noted in their ceremony and with the legality by change of law that’a all that matters.
