JOY Law: marriage equality and religious freedom


Posted By on 28/10/17 at 2:38 PM

In this episode of JOY Law, Amelia Edwards and Kristina Antoniades discuss religious freedom, discrimination and the Australian Marriage Postal Survey, including:

  • religious organisations and exemptions from discrimination;
  • existing legal protection for religious freedom (for example, not having to ordain a priest who is transgender);
  • commercial enterprises and discrimination;
  • potential implications for separation and divorce for same-sex couples who married overseas if the laws are not changed to recognise same sex marriage, and
  • legal recognition of the marriage of transgender and intersex people.
