Marriage equality: Australia stumbles out of the Jurassic

Marriage equality has become a major issue in Australia. As it should.

Despite the Sydney Mardi Gras and all that legally Australia has until, er, now been in the Jurassic era vs LGBT equality.

Prior to the annual conference of the governing Australian Labor Party (ALP) rallies and protests were held and they produced the most odd compromise of"removing the explicit definition of marriage being between a man and a woman from its national platform" but still remaining opposed to marriage equality and promising national civil partnerships.

The antagonistic attitude of religious PM Kevin Rudd to marriage equality reminds one of the attitude of religious PM Tony Blair: 'separate but equal = good enough'.

Advocates of marriage equality produced some of the best adverts for it (in a great Aussie stylee) which I think I've ever seen. Take a look (and learn, Californians):


  1. The Breitling is equipped with an exclusive automatic movement - Bentley Motors calibre. The COSC-certified Bentley Motors T incorporates a unique mechanism called the 30-second Montbrillant Datora , implying the central hand sweeps around the dial every 30 seconds, instead of 60 seconds as in case with common chronographs.

    Because Louboutin Shoes have common features: sexy and charming, which is specific to the design style of Christian Louboutin Pumps . Footwear designer Christian Louboutin Boots designed in two aspects of originality and amazing prices. In general, the Christian Louboutin Sandals in a classic style at prices above $ 500.

    The Hardy clothing attraction here is due to another reason, which is that anyone is able to own a piece of the garment due to its affordability. There are clothes and ED Hardy Shoes , which are priced in the lower side. Besides the various hardy shirt outlets this unique line of hardy shirts is also available online.
