Australia: Gay Marriages Illegal!

Post by Guest on Thu Dec 12, 2013 10:44 am

12th December 2013


Australia’s highest court has reversed a law allowing the country’s first ever gay marriages, less than a week after dozens of couples used the brief window of opportunity to tie the knot.




Around 30 same-sex couples came to Canberra for ceremonies after the region’s Australian Capital Territory (ACT) passed a law allowing them to do so from Saturday.

Yet their marriages have now effectively been nullified by the country’s High Court, which ruled that the law change was never valid in the first place.

Federal government lawyers issued the legal challenge, saying that it was only up to nationwide lawmakers to decide on the definition of marriage – set in 2004 as being between members of the opposite sex.

Minor, but an upsetting setback for all those involved but the ruling will be overturned eventually.

Exactly, but I see Andy is still avoiding telling us his view on it.

Been really getting into this show lately. Earlier in the episode, the president was upset that an old political rival of his was running for office. Asked how the president beat them in an election between them long ago, the president admitted he couldn't remember. Later on, he remembers:
