Australia kicks off weeks-long same-sex marriage ballot

(Worthy News) - Australia on Tuesday launched a postal vote on whether to legalize same-sex marriage as a widely watched poll indicated the country would be overwhelmingly in support.

The non-compulsory ballot, which runs until the end of October, will determine whether Australia becomes the 25th country to legalize same-sex marriage, while also healing a rift in the government.

Despite securing 70 percent public support in an Ipsos/Fairfax poll on Tuesday, the issue of same-sex marriage had faced a political deadlock, only broken last week when the High Court gave the all-clear for the vote. [ Source:Reuters (Read More...) ]

  1. Marriage is between man and a woman but same sex marriage is evil and God will punish them if they will not turn away from that sin. Amen

  2. I met someone on facebook awhile back who had just had a terrifying dream that australia would be hit by a series of great "natural" disasters after legalizing same sex marriage. Both our major political parties are endorsing this. It's about the only thing they agree on. :(
