LNP loses my vote with gay marriage proposal

Parliament passed the Same Sex Marriage Act with a vote of 154 in favour today.

The first gay marriage is supposed to be registered in February 2018.

"What a day. What a day for love, for equality, for respect", said Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Australia became the 26th country to legalize same-sex marriages. They plan to marry next year, and Abbott has said he'll attend despite his personal views.

After new lawsuit, Weinstein renews denials
Weinstein has denied any instances of "non-consensual" sex and has denied that there were ever any "acts of retaliation". All described their experiences at the hands of Weinstein and his attempt to sexually harass and assault them.

Just under 5m people voted "no", with conservative politicians using their rejection as a catalyst to push for religious exemptions to be included in the bill.

"My previous public comments regarding civil divorce never envisaged me separating from my wife, but rather our marriage from the state", he said. They were warned multiple times that parliamentary rules prohibit them from making noise and even applauding. Some lawmakers, including former Prime Minister Tony Abbott sought to insert amendments into the Bill, but all of the proposed changes were voted down.

It was opposed by proponents of same-sex marriage, who wanted direct legislative action and argued a poll would expose gay people and their families to hate speech.

The law will come into effect in the new year.

The Australian House of Representatives has approved a bill that would extend marriage rights to same-sex couples.

Fighting back tears, Liberal MP Sarah Henderson told the story Wednesday night of a close gay friend of hers who died months ago and who, in one of their last conversations, asked her to continue to push for same-sex marriage.

"We've voted today for equality, for love, it's time for more marriages, more commitment, more love, more respect", he continued.

"It also looks like they are going to vote down the right of churches to refuse to hold same sex marriages and marriage celebrations in church halls and the like", he added. More than 12 million people participated. Gay marriage was endorsed by 62 percent of Australian voters who responded to a government-commissioned postal ballot by last month.
