Penny Wong says same-sex marriage will come but not with the support of some church leaders

The SMH Penny Wong, the openly gay Federal Minister for Finance said ...people who opposed gay marriage had nothing to fear. Equality does not diminish the worth of your relationships, it simply recognises the worth of ours...When we are told these relationships are different, that they should be treated differently, we understand the truth of what is being said. And it can be hurtful. But instead of flinching, we are motivated to act because we all know the worth of our relationships. That is why this campaign will continue and that is why change will come.
But is Peter Jensen listening to those he has hurt... when he, together with Catholic and Greek Orthodox bishops have ordered clergy to read out a letter against same-sex marriage during services today.
