Wait, Australia’s Labor Cabinet Would Actually Support Gay Marriage?

This analysis of Australia’s Labor cabinet suggests if they were put in charge of determining the future of same-sex marriage, it’d win in an 11-7 vote with an additional three members acting as possible swing votes. Of course it assumes Prime Minister Juila Gillard is a swing vote and lesbian marriage foe Penny Wong is a hard Yes, which, uh. But apparently: “It is not simply because all politicians are liars, rather it is more to do with their fears and HOW change would have to happen to be acceptable to them.”

      Ths isn’t much of a surprise, politicians are typically cowards moreso than bigots.

      @Adam It’s incredibly incongruous to claim one thing is ‘behind the times’ whilst using the term now-antiquated term ‘retard’ don’t you think?

      As for the allegations of being ‘behind the times’, I refer you to the Human Development Index by the United Nations (Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Development_Index) where Australia is listed as #2 overall in 2009.
