The Anglican priest in Albury is actively campaigning for a yes vote.
I figure that this will then extend to offering marriage ceremonies for SS couples when the legislation is passed.
If the vote had of been 10’years ago I would have voted no
I will be voting yes, it will have no effect on my life whatsoever, but will extend to everyone the same rights and protections that I have.
Some of the stories that are emerging on the lack of legal rights that longterm SS partners have is wrong. It needs to be fixed and I’m pissed that the Libs are playing this out as they are.
The reality is, if this change is not passed now, as soon as Labor is returned to power, whether that is at the next election or the one after that or if it takes 20 years before they are back in power, they will bring the change before parliament as their first piece of legislation, and it will pass.
The world is changing, better to be the ones who bring it in than go down as the ones who tried to stop it.
