Victorian Opposition Leader Ted Baillieu has confirmed to the ACL that he and his party are opposed to same-sex marriage and same-sex adoption.

Following an article (offline) in yesterday’s The Age entitled ‘Baillieu Warms to Gay Marriage Bill, Brumby passes’, ACL Victorian Director Rob Ward sought clarification on the Opposition’s position and was assured by Mr Baillieu that the Liberal Party has not changed its position on gay marriage, which is really a Federal issue anyway. The Victorian Government is also opposed to gay marriage. Please click here to read Rob Ward’s blog comment on the issue.

In the lead up to the Victorian election on November 27, Rob is writing a daily election blog on the www.victoriavotes.org.au website. Reading it is a good way to keep abreast of some of the breaking election issues.

The website also contains a host of other election resources - including the responses of political parties to 21 key questions - and is a great source of information for Christians looking to make an informed vote at the upcoming election.

Prior to the election, ACL is also running a number of Candidate Forum Events, mainly in marginal seats, to give Christians the opportunity to meet and question the people who are seeking their vote. If there is a forum in your electorate, we strongly encourage you to attend. Please go to www.victoriavotes.org.au to find out details of the forums and to make use of all the other election material.
