Surprise "gay marriage" move in Australia. Stalled in national Parliament, but unusual bill passes House in Tasmania State Legislature
POSTED: Sept. 3, 2012
It appears that the pro-family forces have the upper hand in the "gay marriage" battle in Australia. But it's still very tenuous.
Stalled, and possibly dying, in National Parliament
As we've reported the "gay marriage" fight has reached Australia. A bill is before the National Parliament and was expected to be voted on last month. But it's been stalled by a combination of other pressing business and relentless pro-family lobbying (including activists sending our MassResistance booklet on "What same-sex 'marriage' has done to Massachusetts" to every member of Parliament).
So right now, according to the Sydney Morning Herald:
But passes lower House in Tasmania Parliament
But as we also recently reported, the Tasmania State Parliament has decided it couldn't wait for the Australian National Parliament to make up its mind, and had its own "gay marriage" bill in the works.
This past week the Tasmania homosexual lobby was in high gear, and fairly suddenly got the bill passed in the lower house of the state Parliament! This took a lot of pro-family activists by surprise. It now goes to the upper house, the Senate, and pro-family activists have told us they're having to scramble to stop it there.
Thus, there's still a lot yet to happen
No one's backing down
Nevertheless, the homosexual lobby and the pro-family groups are both fighting hard on this. Our side certainly wants to take no chances that this will actually become law. We will keep you up to date.
