Australian government may move to bar discrimination against homosexuals

Catholic World News - December 15, 2010

The proposal—contained in a “Red Book” briefing for the incoming government of Prime Minister Julia Gillard—would prohibit discrimination against homosexuals and lesbians. Attorney General Robert McClelland’s office said, nevertheless, that the Gillard government would not change its public stand in opposition to legal recognition of same-sex marriage.
