Australian same sex marriage referendum voted down

From AFP at Daily Mail:

Australia’s parliament late Monday rejected the government’s proposal for a national vote on whether to legalise same-sex marriage.

The upper house Senate voted 33-29 against the coalition government’s bid to hold a plebiscite on the issue.

Attorney-General George Brandis introduced the bill into the Senate, where the government does not hold an outright majority, despite expectation the opposition Labor and Greens parties would scupper it.More.

Reality check: Perhaps the Supreme Court will legalize it anyway and get the country caught up with progressivism in the rest of the West.
