    Christians, why seek to outlaw this?

    E7, I love you but supporting traditional marriage does not mean we're anti-gay, honey. And it doesn't mean we're all repressed gays either. Everyone marches to their own drum, my very good friend.

    "Traditional" marriage?

    Okay, let's protect "traditional" marriage.

    Now what about "non-traditional" marriage? Can we manage to envisage it?

    Sure.

    Marriage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    As long as 'non' traditional marriage does not include forcing religions to marry couples it does not recognize. In it's legal sense, have at it. For the religions - it is for each faith to decide whether or not it performs such ceremonies.

    Just because I am a Christian does not mean I have the right to stop others from living as they see fit.

    That seems perfectly reasonable. I know in the US marriage is legislated by the individual states but here (Australia) it's a federal law. Marriage can be celebrated by a religious figure (but they have to be approved by the feds. It can also be celebrated by a non-religious figure who is licensed. But wouldn't you know it that our federal law only recognises marriage between one man and one woman. That's regardless of how any religious authority sees it. Yep, we're backward in some things, this is one of them.

    I don't think the state should be able to tell a religion who can be married within its customs. If two same-sex couples want to be married in a religious ceremony but their religion doesn't recognise it then that's a bit of bad luck. But at least (so far) Australia recognises a legal marriage celebrated in another jurisdiction so a same-sex marriage celebrated in a jurisdiction which allows it will be recognised here (in theory). But I can see some issues when the going gets complicated. Our politicians are mostly gutless and unprincipled and sniff the wind of popular opinion instead of providing leadership on delicate issues.

    Never could figure out why people think that not allowing homos to marry is somehow backwards?

    Seems to me, that legalizing the homos animalistic behavior is going backwards.

    Homosexual acts between adults was legalised in my state in the early 1970s, which was a while after some other places. One of the reasons it was legalised was the so-called "Duncan Drowning" which shifted public opinion.

    Stateline South Australia

    Why anyone would want to lock up adults who have consensual sex in private is beyond me.
