The problem seems to be that religious institutions hold an historical mortgage on the term "Marriage" which the state goes along with by referring to non-religious ceremonies as "Civil Union".
.


most weddings performed nowadays are civil unions anyway. something like 70% are outside of the church as far as i know (cant remember exactly). they are still called marriages even though they are performed by civil ceremony with a celebrant. so i dont see this as an issue at all to allow gay people this right.

there would be at least some ministers that would welcome gay members of their congregation a chance to marry in their church too, and that should also be allowed.
I agree with you.
However, the term "marriage" seems to evoke more resistance than "civil union" does, and some militants do seem to want to force the churches to comply.

I think it's ridiculous to force churches to comply. Hindi, Jewish, Muslim marriages are all legal in Australia and none of them are performed in a Christian church, and not should they be

Yes, but, heck, there was a lot of damage done during the time it was allowed.
All sorts of terrible things happened - Mandela died, Holden's closure announced, Broad and Johnson damaged the spirit of cricket.
I know where the blame falls.

My missus brought up a good point last night. She said as a country, we are told we have to tolerate different cultures, races, etc. It is actually illegal to discriminate against all of those things, but the Federal Government is actively discriminating against a group of people based on the fact that a 69 now involves 2 bj's. How can anyone take them seriously when they talk about equility now?

I think people that are disgusted by homosexuality are the ones with the problem, not the actual homosexuals.
