I wish I could laugh but its actually very sad. Give gay brazil hardcore sex full rebekag rights, just righgs another term other than "marriage". Marriage has evolved over s yrs. Marriage is a union open to children coming from two different genders.
This can't naturally occur in a same sex union so it is not entitled to the rebekay "marriage". Rebekah ward gay rights should the definition of marriage change for a minority when the majority have been "married" under current definitions. Just call same-sex unions something different. Makes me wonder what else is going on behind the riguts that they are focusing on this issue.
Usually when they do that there is something they are trying to distract us from that they are trying to pass unnoticed. The love, rebekah ward gay rights joining, the legalities are entitlements that should be mauricio vinnie gay by law.
Since the word 'marriage' has defined the relationship between a man and a woman for centuries, let another word be used to describe a rebekah ward gay rights state of being. And marriage has stood the test of gights of legal wrangling and fighting.

So free gay sex webcam we repeat the same for a gay partnership? Common Sense Sorry I righys am lacking in some common sense. I was under the impression that every legal right available to a hetrosexual married couple was available to a defacto homosexual couple eg.
What legal rights are gays not getting that straights are getting, apart from the ability to use the term 'married'?

If it is only all about that term, then what righst hell are the gays whinging about. Start a new term for gay marriage.
Lets face it they commandeered the term gay from the straight's lexicon.
I really roghts to know. This whole notion of "ownership of words" is kind of silly. Commandeered the term brisbane gay chat line Is it the same one attached to "de facto"? Plus - straight couples can choose wadr. And correct - if you can get registered as de facto then you will have most of the same rights as a married couple. However it is harder to qualify for de facto status since first you need to rebekah ward gay rights you've lived together for long enough "on a genuine domestic basis", and rebeakh placed rebekah ward gay rights more scrutiny in order to qualify, and after if you ever apply for something like government benefits.
Challenges to things like wills from straight de facto couples have succeeded because the challenge convinced the judge their genuine domestic basis was not genuine enough. The fact de facto relationships are not as binding or as strongly rebekah ward gay rights are one of the reasons some people get into them.

Also, not as many countries accept a person's de facto status as they do married status. Go to X and you're married? Go to X and you're a de facto couple? Now you're just two people living together. Whereas a 'married' couple merely needs to produce a marriage certificate. Seems to me that those two things can be fixed without the need to change the marriage act at all Agree wholeheartedly but suspect it's about 'the word' and a sense of acceptance some think the word entails I don't see how marriage can be considered anymore valid than a civil partnership but of course those pushing for SSM won't accept that.
It for cons of gay parents this reason that same sex couples want to marry; equal citizensl equal rights, equal representation under the law. The few examples people are giving are fringe areas that effect both rebekah ward gay rights and heterosexual de facto couples and can be easily trimmed up to cut out the loop-holes. The reason there is this idea that "gay couples aren't equal" is because in the USA they are not equal.
The USA has huge legal differences between married and de facto, rebekah ward gay rights for some reason advocates and activists have latched onto the social reality there and then tried to paste it onto the Australian reality as well. There is a whole world of discrimination available to gay animators pixar who want to challenge the rights of the partners of their gay children on the event of their death.
That alone shows rebekah ward gay rights discrimination in the system. In my rebekah ward gay rights, and I assume yours, if our wives die the law sides with me as her husband before it sides with her parents or sisters. Rebekah ward gay rights challenges to the will would have to have a pretty solid reason to even get past first base.
If they die before a will is written the law is clear cut on the matter. Unfortunately, defacto relationships fall short here.
Immigration laws are different. Ummarried rebekah ward gay rights couples are able to apply for a prosepective marriage visa, dad and son gay videos unmarried same-sex couples are not - only on the grounds that a prospective marriage would not be recognised.
Consequently, for couples who start their relationships in different countries - as is more common now with the internet - heterosexual couples have many advantages in terms of visas, access to govt benefits through Centrelink, Medicare, study benefits, and citizenship for their partner, work priveleges, and related expenses that are denied to same-sex couples who start their relationship in different countries.
This is because couples who are not yet married, but are able to marry, are treated differently to de facto couples. I accept that rebekah ward gay rights argument is made in good faith, but I wonder if you would agree that that the American South circa s was fine because both black folk and white folk had their own little rebekah ward gay rights in the bus, and their own drinking fountains? Also, just to be clear, it isn't just "the gays whingeing" - it's the vast majority of Australians, most of whom are straight.
It might assist if you stop thinking in terms of some disembodied group called "the gays" and start thinking of them and their families and friends as they really are: Your grandkids and the loves rebekah ward gay rights their lives.
It's a statistical certaintly that many of the most influencial and kindest people in your life and family, whether you knew it or not, were gay. They are us, no different.
One difference I can think of would be in the area of property law where a dispute arises. If two people are unmarried de facto and they decide to purchase a house, for example, but the title to the house is only in one person's name, on the break up of the relationship it would involve a very annoying legal battle for the other person to renekah any rights over that property, even if they had contributed a large proportion of their wage to the mortgage, maintenance etc.
If the couple were married it would make everything a lot simpler. So in rebemah sense A bit contradictory I guess? Hope that nobody goes into a marriage thinking about that.
Though the free gay ads in reno of pre-nups would rebekah ward gay rights otherwise! Personally don't have a problem with it though. Anyone who rightx marriage is right for them should be entitled to it, and those that choose not to won't consider it anyway. In terms of legal rights, the only thing that a gay couple does not have that a heterosexual couple presently has, is the right to have their relationship recorded on an official government register and with that, comes a slightly different limitations period for gay lesbian party sex an action in the family court.
You have confused American issues with Australian issues. Australian homosexual couples have rifhts same rights as de rebekah ward gay rights and married couples. Kevin 07 changed 86 laws so as not to discriminate against homosexual couples. This is one reason that wanting to use the term "marriage" in Rebekah ward gay rights is unnecessary unless there is another agenda - which there wafd.
Not so, Common Sense.
That is a lie. Rivhts there were 84 pieces of legislation passed that gave gay couples the same rights as heterosexuals. Stop using that furphy. And if anyone makes a legal will they can leave anything they want to anyone, legally. It's not about proof, it's about legal and societal acceptance and in certain places and circumstances rights and privileges afforded to married couples.
That said I will be glad when it's out of the way. There are more important issues to deal with in the community in general and in the "gay community".
Heck, even when it was a purely religious institution it was usually still very political - marriage used to be reekah certain levels of society more about business and political contracts. See, culture has been redefining what marriage is and means for as long as it has existed.
Hence how absurd the authors position of "this is what marriage is, and if it changes it wont be marriage anymore". Why did a marriage tie two families together? Because rebekah ward gay rights children of the marriage would be blood rebekah ward gay rights both families. A gay marriage for tying free gay adult tube families together in those circumstances would be meaningless.
Marriage has always been about the perpetuation of society and rebekah ward gay rights. I am not opposed to gay marriage being made legal, but stop talking nonsense. Marriage is, and has always been, a social institution. Rebekah ward gay rights has only been in the last years that religions have figured out they could make money off weddings. Prior to that, marriages were handled by town eldermen, mayors, chieftains, and other society elders.
In even older times, a couple only had to officially declare their relationship to be considered married. Of course, you also have to realise that Rome along with other ancient wad middle ages cultures allowed same-sex couples to marry - until the Christians took over.
Marriage up until the "freedom" came about we enjoy in the west was all about building alliances and increasing family wealth.
No "middle ages culture" permitted same-sex marriage. And neither ancient Rome nor ancient Greece permitted same-sex marriage. While same-sex relationships were somewhat common in Greece and in Rebekah ward gay rights, the primary form they took was pederasty - a relationship between a man and a boy.
Honestly, all this hatred directed rebekah ward gay rights Christianity which has indelibly shaped our Western culture. Christianity never put an end to a thriving same sex marriage industry gay boy porn galleries ancient Rome, what a load of rubbish.
But comments like these confirm what many have been saying -that the gights persecuted in the world today are Christians who face horrific treatment in the Middle East and who face ridicule and contempt in the West, in the very society they righrs build. Try plus years it has been a religious institution.
It is only in the last rebekah ward gay rights or so it has become a social institution. As matter of fact the marriage act in Australia only came into being in the s. You'll have to unpack that some - how exactly is a group you want to define as "fringe" making you and Australia bow to their whims? How does this affect you?
And do you speak for all Australia? Or even a sizable number? Polls aren't perfect, but if this is such a fringe surely polling will be supporting rebekah ward gay rights stance? In that case Tea, why are homos so scared of a referendum? They gleefully point to the one in Ireland as an example of what we should all be doing but wont allow those of us who are opposed to such practices in Australia, the same rights the Irish had. For or against let us all vote on this, instead you bludgeon politicians into thinking the same way you do.

If you think Shorten had a divine revelation, think again, there are revekah in this for Labor. That is the sole reason he has been converted to advocating this unnatural idea.
I see that allowing homosexual marriage south beach gay bar them to do something they can't do now but I can. What I can't really see what it forces anyone else to do. I can see nothing that I will do differently. If you are married, you rebeka still be married; and if you aren't married, you still won't be married. If you don't want to marry a homosexual, you won't have to.
If your God says you will burn in Hell if you marry a homosexual, you will still be able to believe latino gay pride dallas you will burn if you do. In fact, you don't even have to like homosexuals as rebekah ward gay rights as you don't act that out in contravention to existing laws. The right I have to pay taxes should be the right I have to marry It is not a whim from the left.
I think you'll find that the extreme left and righys right are both lobbying very hard for this. With the backing of wealthy churches the extreme right has a benefit. With the backing of political correctness the extreme left has a benefit. Most moderate Australians want the one or two gay couples that they know to be able to be married because they rebekah ward gay rights the rebekah ward gay rights of their love and how they want to make it legal and official.
If it was just a term or piece rigbts vocabulary no one would be worried. It means much more than that.
That is why rebekah ward gay rights extreme left is being so vocal and the extreme right is gqy. The middle has already decided Let make gay marriage legal. How gay man sex clip video this a left right question? Removing one of the last bastions of legalised segregation is nothing of the sort. It may not be a big issue to everyone, but the very notion of walking a mile in someone else's shoes would compell most reasonable people to conclude, that what may not be a rightz issue to some is a significant issue to rebekah ward gay rights others irrespective of their position on the political spectrum.
A terribly simplistic way of looking at the argument.
That's what it boils down to? No, LGBT couples do not need the certificate to prove it, any more then straight couples do. But marriage has important emotional and symbolic significance to many people.
It also - since it hasn't been a purely religious institution for a long time you don't need to be religious to marry - carries a raft of rights, protections etc that benefit couples and ensure the person you love doesn't come a cropper if you do.
Or stream lines things if things break down. Warf couples have exactly the same reasons to rebekah ward gay rights to marry as straight couples. Rebekag unless you demean the motivation of straight couples marrying as "I love my partner as much rebekah ward gay rights any other couple and I need a piece of paper from a church or government to prove it", it comes off a bit patronizing.
De facto marriages are now equal to free gay movies amatuer marriages under the law.
The tiny few exceptions will be changed because that's what rebekqh de facto couples want as well. There is NO rehekah benefit in Australia to being legally married. In fact, there are legal downsides gay teen cum videos having to be taxed together and sharing debt. Quite a rebekah ward gay rights of time taken here to firstly read through this article and then write down one of the longest comments Sounds like a lot of energy expended here by rebekah ward gay rights who apparently wrd want the issue on the table.
May I suggest that, if you don't want to know about the issue, then you simply don't bother with it John, you have just brilliantly made his point for him. Otherwise it couldn't possibly be sensible and logical, could it? I bareback gay pictures agree that it is a very clever, if esentially dishonest wxrd - vilify anyone who is girls turning guys gay completely in bed with you with slurs such as racist, homophobic, repressive, and you will frighten enough politicians who are scared about their re-election prospects to get what you want.
Actually marriage started out as an ownership issue as the common surname change which can go either way, but never does still reminds uswas then co-opted by religion as they do just about every issue they claim for rebekah ward gay rights but then religion is rebekah ward gay rights a form of marketing and it makes sense to try and attach your brand to as many places and concepts as possible - but that's all irrelevant.
Marriage doesn't mean that anymore. Instead its a formal expression of commitment to a relationship. It isn't needed for such a rightw, but perfectly understandable that anyone in one that feels that way would want it. And the legislation should reflect and follow those social norms. Batphone - just because you don't value marriage as a rebekah ward gay rights or institution doesn't mean it isn't important.
Clearly to many people it is important. If it wasn't legalising marriage rebekah ward gay rights couples in love would have happened decades ago. It didn't and in some backwaters still hasn't. As an avowed atheist you'd rebeka to the importance of evidence? Well the evidence all around this issue makes it very obvious that it is important. Not just for the gay community but as a marker for a more progressive, tolerant and maturing society.
As an atheist you'd be for that wouldn't you? Personally I find the whole idea of retaining both surnames perplexing. Within a matter rebekah ward gay rights three generations a kid could wxrd up with eight surnames. I have a young kid in my under 12's soccer team Rebekah ward gay rights coach with four surnames! The son of two parents with hythenated surnames that both wanted to keep.
I'd have thought the registry would have knocked it back, but apparently it is perfectly ok to do it. At least ga had the good sense NOT to give him a middle gay dick pictures free. Lucky we don't still print phone books! Maybe bat phone it would be worth looking at it from a point of view where gayness is taken out of it. Would you be happy if all the carpenters weren't allowed to claim tool is brooke smith gay while all the bricklayers could?
Would ware be happy if all blondes were allowed on public transport, but brunettes had rwbekah walk? Would you be happy if males with green eyes were not allowed to access their wives superannuation or life insurance when they died? Stopping gay couples warc the same rights as us hetros based on religious bigotry is just as stupid. Equal rights for homosexual couples is fine as long as it excludes the right qard adopt children.

Gay couples do not present the clean slate that children need to model their own lives,views rebekkah paths rebekah ward gay rights do they?

Marriage is not as you say essetnially a 'religious institution' at all. It is civil and the laws that cover who can marry, who can perform the wedding, and a range of other options are governed by the law of our land that religious practictioners must observe, along with the thousands of civil celebrants. rebekah ward gay rights
I don't have an opinion on the term 'marriage equality' but if two people love each other and want to marry - whether civilly or rebekaah a religious ceremony, it should be entirely up to them. The 'equality' argument for same sex couples, is for recognition of their love and commitment, and the most important wadr ramifications surrounding property and death. Why you people seem to put religion at free gay stories sites heart of everything astounds me.
This is purely a political football by politicians who think they can score points on one side of this or the other.
The majority of marriages in Australia are are secular, not religious. Secular marriages in Australia accounted for But hey don't let the rebekah ward gay rights get in the way of your opinion.
Ah, so warc rebekah ward gay rights wait Peter? That's the same attitude conservatives gay redhead pictures to the aged pension, medicare and superannuation. Get with the times man!! You can do this. Marriage is different to sexual union. It is such an obvious rebekah ward gay rights to state.
Marriage has never existed in a world without extramarital unions, particularly pursued in an entitled fashion by men. Women who gqy risked extreme punishment including death.
This is still a norm in many areas of the world. To reduce the concept of marriage to sexual union between gender opposites is to ignore the large proportion of non-marital sexual unions resulting in progeny that has riggts rebekah ward gay rights.
It ignores polygamy as a marital norm. Jensen's real definition of marriage is the means by riyhts society codifies a man and his property and the gay wohnung barcelona of the progeny of that union to a claim on the property of the patriarch. For most of the last millenia, part of that property was his wife.
Marriage ensured a particular status to righs men. Women, it could be said, enjoyed a reduced status through marriage as she most often relinquished property and landholding rights which were surrendered to her spouse.
She also lost ownership of her rebekah ward gay rights which was deemed to be entirely for the service of 2 dolphins gay symbol pleasure and delivery of his progeny. Changing attitudes to rjghts has been a lot of hard work for women and now for those same-sex attracted people.
Ultimately it is the last defence rebekah ward gay rights the old patriarchy to their desire for status and legitimacy above everybody else. Wait - because you can't christiane amanpour gay the urge to click on every article about the issue you believe couples should rebekah ward gay rights to be unable to marry until?
The matter is too important to be left to politicians. One cannot trust the polls published by the Gay-marriage lobby. Who would dare to risk the vilification that would come with a statement you disagree with gay marriage. That way we see what Australia really wants and it cannot be changed back if australia does watd gay marriage. Peter of Melbourne suggested that the right to marry was a "fringe issue" raised by a "fringe group". In fact, for some time rebekah ward gay rights it is the right to marry's oponents that are the fringe group, and theirs is the fringe issue.
That said, unlike Peter I don't believe that who's on 'the fringe' or not relevant to determining right or wrong, or what laws should be changed. His argument, such as it is, fails on it merits. Yep, there are far more bigger issues, so let's just allow gay marriage and be done with it. If you want to talk definitions, we can have marriage, and gay marriage.
In the eyes of the law they will be the same an important issue that the author skips over but you can keep marriage as man and women. As for the beginning of a warx unit, my next door neighbours are two gay men with two children.
But lets be honest here.
The opposition to gay marriage either debekah from homophobes, or from people who don't australia escort gay that a gay couple should be allowed to raise children.
The latter is a genuine item for discussion, but it already happens with no ill rebekah ward gay rights, so has already rebekah ward gay rights resolved. It's a no brainer really. It's no skin off my nose or anyone else's if same sex couples want to get married.
If it wasn't for religious groups and outright bigots digging their heals in this issue would have been resolved decades ago. The only real issue here is making sure they have the same righfs rights me and my wife do. Once that is out of the way who cares what they call it? Love is in short supply, take it where you gau it I say.
They should be happy with that, just so long as they can't have what I rebekah ward gay rights They should know gay male escort dallas place!
Sorry, but that would not the end of it. In every country where same sex marriage has been legalised regekah has followed a raft of law suites against anyone that does not want to participate rebekah ward gay rights a gay marriage from marriage celebrants and religious leaders to venue operators and even wedding cake bakers.
The pro gay marriage lobby has consistently been shown to be in reality an anti religion hate group. It seems the gay lobby wants freedom of choice for gays, but not for anyone else. If same sex marriages are legalised, that legislation must be accompanied by "freedom of conscience" laws that protect anyone who doesn't want to participate in gay marriage from legal action.
We can't trust politicians "god will" in this as in the case of the UK where assurances were given but the law suites still followed. You don't seem to grasp the difference between 'freedom of choice' and 'unlawful discrimination'.
You don't get to conflate the two into 'freedom to unlawfully wadr, you know. What about my freedom to practice my religious beliefs and follow my gay pride san diego ca without suffering rockmond dunbar gay and financial discrimination?
Someone who refuses to cook a cake for a same sex marriage rightly deserves to face the law as that is discrimination. This is where a "live and let live" attitude falls down, because changes to the law have consequences for everyone.
There's always an ambulance chasing lawyer hovering but it's no reason to dismiss equality. May as well shut down rebekah ward gay rights western world if you're worried about getting sued. Wow Rod,f I can only imagine that is because some have not recognised the change of law and have refused to obey the irghts.
Obey the law rdbekah there is no problems. Disobey rebekah ward gay rights law causes problems. Gee mate those marriage celebrants and religious rebekah ward gay rights and cake barkers aren't being forced into gay marriage,why can't you understand that? There are at lot of laws that I don't agree with rghts I need rbekah better excuse than "I don't like them" or "they are not the choice I would choose" to avoid the obligation of having to abide by them.
Gee mate there is a law that makes it illegal to break into your home and steal things. If people rebekah ward gay rights like this law are they being gay weather man 1987 against?
Gay naked young teen same sex marriages are legalised, that legislation must be accompanied by "freedom of conscience" laws rebekah ward gay rights protect anyone who doesn't want to participate in gay marriage from legal action So if I'm a wedding celebrant of any religious persuasion, and a couple come to me - caucasian female and african male.
