Gay-marriage-sydney-australia

How do your neighbours feel about gay marriage? News.com.au has launched an interactive tool that will show Australians, postcode by postcode.

Interestingly, it shows “while most Australians are in favour, there is a wall of opposition to gay marriage running through western Sydney, one of the nation’s key election battlegrounds which both major parties must win over to win government.”

The results for Greenway, our electorate, would seem to bear this out. I find that doubly interesting given that, far from being a Christian stronghold, the southern end of Greenway is hot spot of religious and cultural diversity. Raises all sorts of questions about what we mean by “secularization” when some of the more de-Christianized suburbs are found to be amongst the more ethically conservative.
