With the general populace now surveyed and the answer obvious, the obvious question remains. What now?
Good morning all! The week that just flew had a nicer face than usual. Unless you’re Robert Mugabe. Or you voted ‘No’.
Yesterday, the Archbishop’s grating comments on marriage equality rolled the eyes of a nation. But, as someone who considers themselves religious, I’m tired of being tarred with the same brush.
The question might be new in the Australian experience, but the fearmongering tactics are archaic. The No campaign tying themselves to religion illustrates this point.
As we get ever closer to the deadline, there’s the assumption that the issue will be put to rest. However, this discussion has long predated the question being asked, and thusly will remain.
Welcome back to the week that was yours. Disaster struck, but natural and lesser so, headlined by one Cory Bernardi.
I’ve voted, had my say, and made my voice heard. However we who vote Yes should not forget that we could easily be ignored, and all the pain and hurt would be for nothing. I hope I’m wrong.
Welcome back to another week of your life that you won’t be getting back. But don’t think about that, North Korea has launched warheads over Japan.
With the marriage equality debate heating up on both sides, comedian Hannah Gadsby highlighted a pertinent issue: It’s no longer a debate.
Justice Michael Kirby once railed against the upcoming postal survey, but has since changed his tune. In order to find out, we sat down with the High Court’s great dissenter.
Sunday. A day to reflect how we survived the week that preceded it. Hurricane Irma led the way, but there were enough winds of change, schadenfreude, and pity to go around.
In the wake of the High Court’s decision, I thought I’d bust myth the anti-marriage equality crowd cling to. The idea of tradition is not automatically a positive, even if it’s been legitimised by repetition.
With the Catholic Church reserving the right to fire any staff that enters a same-sex marriage, it’s worth point out that freedom of faith, and freedom to discriminate on the tenets of that faith are two very separate entities.
Monday. Stay away from her, you bitch. Good news however, as a man and his pint saved London, John McEnroe entered the SSM debate and loyalty exists in the footballing world. We’re surprised too.
The thoughts of Margaret Court are well documented, however, I think it’s time we take serve at her beliefs to find fault.
The news from Indonesia gave me a jolt. We, a nation that routinely legislates against human rights, have “serious concerns” about another nation’s violations. While we do not condemn SSM with a cane, we do so with a fountain pen.
Well bugger me with a fish fork, it’s Thursday. Huzzah. The world kept dying while you were recharging, which featured an argument at the estimates, Taiwan saying yes to gay marriage and an unholy clusterboink on ABC2.
Budget impersonations, schoolyard hijinks and tasteful semi-nudes. It’s been a fairly normal week in the rolling seas of #AusPol. Let us wheel out the participation ribbons.
The full moon has crested over the Trump administration, Alan Joyce will press charges against pie tit and Linkin Park has torn down their legacy. And yes, you should call in sick.
Yesterday, the Turnbull Government reached peak Turnbull Government, in that they’ve become fluent in doublespeak, using it on multiple fronts.
And a good harmony day to you. What happened while you were asleep? Well, QandA took on fake news, the Turnbull gov made a point on 18C and a large chicken was…large.
As a proud and angry leftist, I’ve discovered something: our vociferous criticism of the Coalition has swayed them in absolutely nothing.
