    According to the Commonwealth Marriage Act we have no problem with allowing people to get married to their aunt or uncle, niece or nephew or ‘first’ cousin. So why don't we allow gays to marry? http://www.ag.gov.au/www/agd/agd.nsf/Pag... http://www.comlaw.gov.au/ComLaw/Legislat... @Captain Refrigerant: Gay marriage isn't immoral and it won't lead to people marrying animals. Gay marriage and people marrying animals are two very different things. Firstly gay marriage is when two people willingly consent to marrying. An animal cannot consent to marrying a person. I think perhaps your parents were first cousins. @Enzyte Bob's Impotent Clone: I'm sure you would like that wouldn't you? @Do what now: If you're reffering to aids/HIV, most sufferers of the disease are straight. @renclrk: I would, however my local MP is a Jesus freak. He believes that the GFC was God punishing greed and that if you read Revelations you will see we're in the 'end of days.' @Aussie Patriot: Unfortunately you're right, we are governed by Christian Fundamentalists, both Abbott and Rudd belong to that group. It's just that Rudd's too weak and poll driven to say what he really believes, whereas Tony Abbott doesn't care about ramming his morality down our throats. My MP is James Bidgood. You would think he was a Coalition MP but he's a member of the Labor Party. http://www.dailymercury.com.au/story/200... @Gullible Liberals: If no man is without sin then why do you believe you have the right to judge gays? The church has hurt far more than it has helped. In every single country that has been colonized by Christians the indigenous people have been the victims of genocide. Christians have in the past used the bible to justify slavery. The church has subjugated women for centuries and continues to do so and the Catholic Church has been molestering children and covering it up for centuries. The church does not help anyone unless they have an alterior motive; namely money and potential suckers to convert. How can you say Christianity has helped people? @No Teen Zone: The primary mode of HIV infection worldwide is through unprotected sexual contact between members of the opposite sex. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2545554/?tool=pmcentrez Perhaps if the church wasn't so opposed to condoms and sex education there wouldn't be so many Aids/HIV infections in the world. @molly: I've always admired the New Zealanders. For such a small country they have a lot of guts. Case in point being the New Zealand Nuclear Free Zone, Disarmament, and Arms Control Act 1987. @Captain Refrigerant: My aren't we pretentious.
