Barack Obama, U.S. president
"I think same-sex couples should be able to get married,"


But here in Australia our PM Julia Gillard said this:
“This is the frank answer, we’d got very clear Labor party policy on this and it won’t be changing
– that we believe the marriage act is appropriate in its current form,
that it’s recognising that marriage is between a man and a woman,
but we have as a government taken steps to equalise treatment for gay couples,
in the things that government does in social security benefits and the like.”

“Look, that is my view, I think that’s where we’re at as a community now,
and I think it’s appropriate that for these very sensitive issues that we’re reflecting community views.”

Well do I want everyone to have the same rights.
I vote she better start listening to the people.
When that happens I will be happy.

I thought that Labor parties were Socialist. The view of the Australian Labor party looks rather conservative to me.
