Same-sex mar­riage bill clears Aus­tralia’s Se­nate:

The Washington Post - - THE WORLD -

Aus­tralia’s Se­nate passed a mea­sure to le­gal­ize same-sex mar­riage, per­haps as soon as next week, af­ter law­mak­ers dis­missed a con­ser­va­tive push to al­low re­li­gious ob­jec­tors to refuse ser­vice to same-sex cou­ples. The bill moves to the lower house next week. If the leg­is­la­tion passes as ex­pected, Aus­tralia will be­come the 26th na­tion to le­gal­ize same­sex mar­riage.
