SUBMISSION ON THE MARRIAGE EQUALITY AMENDMENT BILL 2010
Dear Committee Secretary,
As an Australian who believes same-sex couples should be able to marry, I strongly support the Marriage Equality Amendment Bill 2010.
The Bill is an important step towards providing legal equality for same-sex partners and removing discrimination against them.
The Bill will strengthen relationships, families and marriage, and will make Australia a fairer and more inclusive nation.
I support provisions of the Bill which will allow a celebrant who is a minister of religion to refuse to marry same-sex partners.
I oppose civil unions as a substitute for full equality in marriage for same-sex partners.
