The Warren were having a hefty debate about the issue with the main mod there being a positive and being accused of deleting posts or something similar and the site was hacked, just shortly before our site was shut down as a precaution.

As I teach in chess how chess is similar to marriage - marry in haste and regret in leisure.

I'm very confident the Yes vote will win easily. I'm less confident that parliament will handle things well.
Agreed politicians got it wrong in the first place by not making a decision themselves.Waste of money electing them to make decisions.
I am sure that we wont have a say if the coalition sends off our troops to fight in another war

With the recent confusion, I reckon that they will get the country wrong!

The Coalition would be mad now not to act on it , would be a political death knell if they didn't and they'd lose my vote

And I hope all my gay and lesbian friends can do exactly what they want to do , many have been in long term relationships and deserve the same rights as their straight brothers and sisters

I feel sorry for the Bakers, they're going to go broke now because the gay community will boycott them now. Serves them right , although it probably means no more vanilla slices,or in Happys case ,no more pies

Time for a pro-gay bakery named Masterpiece Bakery to open up and make a fortune - with creative products and names the world is at their feet.

Where a similar majority thought it should have already been legislated for.

Seeing that we have already known for some time that the community overwhelmingly felt this way, the only good result is that the ABS reckon they have come in twenty odd million under budget.

Warringah 75% in favour. What's it going to be Tony? Listen to the people you represent or do your personal beliefs come first?

On that note, the seats that voted no overwhelmingly are labour heartland but probably have many socially conservative people living there. Interesting times ahead. Might be a masterstroke from Turnbull, who has turned himself into a "Master bator" with his ineffective leadership.

If it gets to a vote in parliament, these labour members will have to vote yes, surely. I hope people don't care enough about the issue to vote out an incumbent on the basis of a single issue, but this is the risk when you ask the people to do the politician's job.
