Marriage Equality Submission

The FABC has recently submitted a written submission on the subject of Marriage Equality which was drafted by Ajahn Brahm of Bodhinyana Monastery (WA). This was in response to an invitation by a parliamentary committee. Subsequently the FABC was invited to a parliamentary consultation on this topic. We were represented by Ajahn Sujato of Santi Forest Monastery on 13 April 2012 at NSW Parliament. The discussion was part of an ongoing series of consultations on a proposed revision of the Marriage Act under consideration by Federal House of Representatives.

The Jewish (Progressive) and Hindu representatives supported changes to support same sex marriages as did our Ajahn Sujato.
