RE-POSTING: As Marriage Equality has again surfaced as a current national issue, the following post of May 2013 is reposted today (16 Sep 2016):

The FABC had submitted a written submission in support of Marriage Equality on this in April 2012 (drafted by Ajahn Brahm of Bodhinyana Monastery). Subsequently the FABC was invited to a parliamentary consultation on this topic. We were represented by Ajahn Sujato of Santi Forest Monastery on 13 April 2012 at NSW Parliament. The discussion was part of an ongoing series of consultations on a proposed revision of the Marriage Act under consideration by Federal House of Representatives.

The Jewish (Progressive) and Hindu representatives supported changes to support same sex marriages as did our Ajahn Sujato.
