The wrong side of history

The Australian 2 December 2011

The current fallback argument against gay marriage, after all the other arguments against the Great Australian Fair Go have been exhausted, is of course that gay marriage isn’t that important an issue and there are more pressing things to be getting on with.

Now you will find, suspiciously, that the people saying this aren’t generally (a) gay and (b) wanting to get married. However, they do have a point, there are indeed more important things to be attended to and the best way to make an ugly squabble against basic unfairness disappear is to remove the basic unfairness as quickly as possible, especially if it costs nothing, the majority of Australians support it and it even has the advantage of being the right thing to do.

Over to you, Julia.
