Australia is the land of the warriors’ last resort.

But the troops are deserting them. The faithful are no longer as willing as they were to obey the ancient Christian sex rules. They have shrugged off the power of their bishops and preachers.

Just like the rest of us they live together before they marry. They use the pill. They have abortions. They divorce. They remarry without annulment. They aren’t much troubled by their homosexual brothers and children. And most back equal marriage.

When Crosby Textor asked Australians in 2014 if they supported or opposed allowing same-sex couples to marry, they found support high across the faiths as well as Australia:

Total support: 72%.

Catholics: 67%.

Christians generally: 59%.

Anglican and Uniting: 57%.

Let's hope he was in a position that he would have been happy to die in.
As in, at least he died happy!.

No joke for his spouse and no disrespect meant.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-01-2...ficate/7102164

Quote:
Premier Jay Weatherill says he will apologise to the family of a British man after authorities refused to recognise his same-sex marriage on his death certificate.

...


"We introduced an initial Bill to the Parliament last year to begin the removal of discrimination from South Australian legislation," he said.

I see there is a lot of intolerance that is happening in this chamber, the whole fact is, it is not taking into consideration those people who are marriage celebrants, who for whatever reason, whether it be religious or non-religious reasons, because they don’t wish to marry a couple, are going to be left themselves wide open, because you may be sued or for litigation.

The thing re celebrants is probably as dumb an argument as it was here - priests, clerics, ministers, preachers etc. have never had to marry anyone they didn't want to marry. They have never had to marry couples they thought unsuitable for any number of reasons, including such things as not members of that church or Catholic and divorced or not able to attend counselling sessions etc.

There has never been a case in Canada of a gay couple 'suing' or a cleric being 'forced' to marry anyone.

Likely helps that UCOC is the largest Protestant denom. here and they were marrying gay couples before it was even possible to do so legally, and have gay ministers as well, should you be so picky.

churches / religious institutions will be exempt, civil marriage celebrants won't

and despite all the ridiculous scaremongering that went on, neither will the florists or wedding cake makers be able to refuse service on the basis of opposition to gay marriage
