This new advertisement is circulating among my Facebook friends. I've been ambivalent about gay marriage...but I think this is a powerful ad. According to reports, marriage equality is a hotly contested issue in Australia, where the Prime Minister supports a conscience vote on same-sex marriage, but would not favor including marriage equality in the partys platform. A conscience vote would likely not pass. Meanwhile, groups in the USA such as The Third Way in Washington DC have argued based on new research that it's a message of commitment like this one and not about benefits or rights that will be most effective with American voters. What do you think? Watch the video on YouTube here.
