Australia has taken a decisive step towards legislating marriage equality by Christmas after 61.6% of voters in an unprecedented national postal survey approved a change to the law to allow couples of the same sex to marry.

The result, announced by the Australian Bureau of Statistics on Wednesday, will lead to consideration of a same-sex marriage bill in parliament with the prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, promising marriage equality should be law by Christmas.

  1. Like ir dislike we have to admid that everyone has the right to express his beliefs . Hopefully Ahmadiyyah will support the right of gay lesbian.
    If Ahmadiyyah do not support the right of Homosexual groups, because God curse homosexualilty thousand years ago.

    Homosexual groups and Ahmadiyyah group had the same right to express his beliefs

    Unfortunately the extremist Clerics ban Homosexual and Ahmadiyyah in Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia and other Islamic countries. It is wrong absolutely.

    Islamic teaching ( Gospel and Al Quran) tell us that there is no compulsion in religion of God. Q2:256.

    All ❤️
