Just in from ABC News:

Liberal MP Andrew Laming is wrapping up debate on his amendments.

The conservative MP has tried to table letters from a number of Christian schools that are concerned about their ability to teach traditional views of marriage. Leave was not granted.

That means we’re getting close to a vote on these amendments.

LNP MP Andrew Laming is pretty fired up in the House. He says the amendments are unnecessary, claiming there are very few religious marriage celebrants.

For goodness sake, you go to a marriage celebrant because you don’t want to get married in a church.

They are hardly queuing up for that reason. Those celebrants, if they hold a religious conviction, can go back and connect with their local church.

In my part of the world, you can’t walk down the street without running into a church…

…We have existing religious protections, they overwhelming cover views around marriage. If you’re a celebrant who happens not to have that religious conviction, I’d love to meet that unicorn! See MoreSee Less

Weinam Creek
