The Marriage Question

The issue of marriage and who can and cannot marry is one that has now become a distraction for the Federal parliament.
I say a distraction because surely the Federal parliament has far better, far more important things to do than to go meddling in issues of marriage, families and religious conventions and freedoms especially when there is still the Constitutional question unanswered of whether this is even a matter for the Australian Commonwealth Government.

American, Presidential candidate Ron Paul, who has had some good points to say on this issue expressed his view saying that since marriage is a religious matter and religion is a matter for the states then the federal government has no place meddling in this issue.

So what should Australia do about non man - woman unions? Perhaps they could be given a different name even if they are to have the same standing under civil law.

It is a problematic area for any government, because of the religious background and culture that marriage is man and wife.

It is also problematic because the outspoken lobby groups on this issue, the same people who, for years, have demanded free speech, have also said that anyone who disagrees with them shouldn't be allowed to have their say ..... Turn It UP.
