I'm glad. The issue has had a "fair go" and it's time for ssm advocates to give it a rest.

You guys missed my sarcasm... The ACL said all that. I'm as passionate a SSM advocate as you'll find.

Nah I thought you did but I wasn't sure as the poster above me missed it.




Oh the fun, Jehova's witnesses at the door this morning. I was too lazy to open the door(was still in bed), so I didn't get the fun talk. But now I kinda wish I did. I truly wonder how they'd respond, since they always ask if you're married or whatnot.

I lock the door and close the blinds when they come through the neighborhood.

Like I said... just seemed to be lost in textual translation.

I once was bored and had a fun talk on the Flying Spaghettimonster, convinced them I'm a firm believer and that his noodliness would come save us from the Jehova's hell. They gave me just the words I needed to have them walk away silently. They asked "But this spaghetti creature, it doesn't exist!". All I replied was "Prove it.". They thought, realised I just mirrored their own argument, and left.


I truly have no issue with religious people minding their own business. I do, however, have an issue with people bothering others about it and forcing their kids to go along with it. Then again, all religions pretty much hate me anyway.

I was outside in the backyard with the dog one afternoon, when I saw a guy wearing a suit with a notebook walking down the sidewalk. I was certain he was a Jehovah's Witness, and really hoped he'd come over, because the dog would have started barking at him. And I decided that if she started barking, I'd start barking with her. But he either wasn't, or didn't see us, and I never got to bark at him.


So you really believe only 144k people are getting into heaven? How many do you have already? I don't think I like my odds of converting at age 30, and competing for only a few more spots. If they're already filled, don't you think my time would be much better spent worshipping satan? I mean, that's where I'll be going if I'm not guaranteed one of those slots, wouldn't it be wiser to get in his good graces instead? And if it's predetermined, and I'm already chosen at random, why try? Sounds like all I need to do is show up once I'm dead, and I'm golden. No life of door knocking or time spent praying that could be otherwise spent playing video games.

Haven't found an English source yet, but in the paper this morning was stated that our laws are making it easier for lesbian couples to gain parental rights. Currently you have the biological mother, and their female partner/wife has to go to court to get adoption rights. That will change, as the new law will immediately indicate the wife as the second parent. One step closer to equality!

High Court overturned our first ever state ssm laws. All the couples who married last week have just had their marriages made invalid.

Understandable from a law point of view but it still fucking sucks.

*territorial.

States possess greater independence of legislation than territories; though I imagine that even if this had been a state law it still would have been overturned.

Pretty sucky day. I have several gay Indian friends and they were really disappointed, a big step away from modernity for India.

I heard it on Australia on the news this morning, that all the marriages already held were annulled. Shame.

What exactly went wrong? Cause that I didn't quite catch.

The actual Australians can correct me if I'm wrong, but, to my knowledge, the ACT legalized SSM in spite of a federal law now allowing SSM, and the federal law won out, unsurprisingly. The same result would happen in the US if, say, Texas passed a law repealing the Affordable Care Act.

Pretty much. ACT introduced its own ssm law but the High Court said the federal laws override it.
