The "no" crowd allways harp on about how ssm is harmfull to kids but they never acually explain how, they usually just bitch about free speech when i press the question.

And of course, this debate is about allowing two people to marry. Plenty of marriages have no children, and not all same sex couples will want children. Saying "Won't someone think of the children!" is the usual no crowd trying to muddy the waters.
Needs a logical fallacy category all its own*: Argumentum ad Kindergartenum.


* - Yeah, I know... Appeal to Emotion covers it.

At long last! Congratulations to Karl and Bodo.

Now, when Germany doesn't blow up or disappear into a sinkhole, and life goes on, will Australia take note?

considering many xtians retain their faith despite ample evidence to the contrary, I doubt this will sway anyone. in fact, Australia has taken note, our govt has not.

Well I'm glad that's settled then.

In a remarkable turn of events we have had an opinion poll to tell us what the results of an opinion poll will be.

Quote:
Mr Abbott and Mr Hayes’ comments come as an exclusive Sky News ReachTel poll has revealed the ‘yes’ vote is on track to win the government’s postal survey.


The poll of nearly five thousand people found more than 64 per cent of those surveyed have sent back their ballot and voted ‘yes’.


A further six per cent still plan to vote ‘yes’ and 15.5 per cent have already voted ‘no’.


According to the figures, 79 per cent of Australians have already completed and posted their response.
Can someone tell me again why we are spending 200m on an opinion poll when we can have them free and get the same answer?
