I don’t even understand why this is a matter for debate, but yes, Australians are also wrestling with the idea of legalizing gay marriage. It shouldn’t be an issue, but there it is. One thing particularly notable, though: a Catholic(!) MP spoke out clearly in favor of gay marriage.
But Catholic Labor MP Graham Perrett said he supported a change to recognise gay marriage because it would protect young gay people from abuse.
Mr Perrett, who has two gay brothers, said if the Marriage Act was to be changed over night he would not notice a change.
He said his Catholic faith was a “private matter” and he had no qualms about speaking out in support of gay marriage.
So many things said exactly right — he’s my favorite kind of Catholic.
There’s a poll. It’s mostly going the right way, but you can play with it if you’d like.
Do you support gay marriage?
