Last week, the Australian parliament took a step backwards by voting 98-42 to uphold the ban on same-sex marriages, despite opinion polls that favor allowing it. (On a more encouraging note, here are photos of a same sex marriage held at a Buddhist monastery in Taiwan. It is not yet legal there, though legislation has been pending since 2003.)
It is interesting that the Australian prime minister is believed to be an atheist, demonstrating that being an atheist does not mean that one can be relied upon to oppose things that are purely religion-based.
The satirical show The Hamster Wheel decides to examine the biblical arguments against same-sex marriage in close detail.
