SYDNEY, Australia, December 11, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) Christians in Australia who uphold the sanctity of one-man, one-woman marriage are feeling threatened after the country legalized same-sex marriage last week.
After a volunteer mail-in survey, lawmakers in both houses of Parliament passed a law legalizing homosexual marriage last week. But as Pastor Mark Powell put it in The Spectator Australia, Let it be known that on the December 7, 2017 the day in Australian Parliamentary history when "love won" the hate campaign truly began.

Sad state of affairs.
They have no constitutional rights in Australia. Parliamentary govt can do anything.
They can’t just be happy that they got what they wanted.
This just goes back to what Ive always observed - the more the homoLeft gets, the angrier they get.
