FLIP SIMMONS: EQUAL LOVE

EQUAL LOVE


Two nights ago, two of my dear friends got married.
Two people - Two humans - celebrating their love & eternal dedication to each other.
And, even though it was not acknowledged, by the Australian government, we celebrated.
We celebrated love. We celebrated a wedding! And boy, what a wedding it was - 
One of the most beautiful I ever had the privilege of being a part of.

How is it possible that I live in a country where a person can marry a relative (of the opposite sex), yet same-sex marriage is still not possible under the law. 

Also, I find it abominable that same-sex marriages entered into under the laws of another county are also not recognised in Australia. Yet, I can go overseas and marry the first girl I see and, well, that's that! 

It's a fundamental principle of right and wrong. This is plain and simple WRONG. 

EQUAL RIGHTS - by law.
EQUAL LOVE.
