It’s always been inevitable, but it’s getting closer:
The Queensland ALP state conference has passed a motion calling for changes to the party’s national platform in support of same-sex marriage.
The Tasmanian, Victorian, Northern Territory and South Australian branches of the Labor Party have passed similar motions.
I know Gillard wants to keep the Labor Right happy, and is prepared to bend over backwards to do so – I mean, really, what’s with spitefully refusing CNIs for gay people wanting to get married overseas? – but just how far down is she willing to go with them? Has she really stuck her colours to their nasty mast so firmly that she can never do the right thing, no matter how obvious it comes that an increasing majority of Australians support it?
I can no longer tell with Gillard what she actually believes. I don’t know if she really does believe in equality but thinks it’d politically destroy her (worse than she’s doing herself), or whether she really does have some kind of problem with equality for gay people.
ELSEWHERE: The countries that have legalised gay marriage have of course descended into anarchy and compulsory anal sex and abused children and outlawed religions DO NOT GO AND CHECK JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT.
