Same Sex Marriage Has Passed The Final Vote!

Australia could have same-sex marriage before the end of the day

Australia's parliament passed a bill legalising same-sex marriage Thursday after the nation overwhelmingly voted in favour of changing the law, ending decades of political wrangling.

There had been little doubt that this bill would pass with sweeping support from Nationals, Liberals, Greens, the crossbench and Labor.

"This debate for me has never been about homophobia, it's never been about denying the love in a same-sex relationship, never been about discriminating on any basis".

"We have made sure that we have removed any element of discrimination in this bill while ensuring that religious freedoms are protected", he added.

Dutton declined to comment on the US baker's case, saying legal rights and protections there were different.

Same-sex couples will be allowed to marry in Australia after new laws cleared parliament.

Former prime minister Tony Abbott tried to effectively kill off the legislation with an amendment that would stop its progress, but failed.

Turnbull, a gay marriage supporter, says he wants wedding celebrants, not just those affiliated with churches, to have the right to refuse to officiate at same-sex marriages.

A nonbinding postal survey found that 62 percent of Australian respondents wanted gay marriage to be legal.

The only potential obstacle to the law passing on Thursday would be if marriage equality opponents managed to amend the legislation.
