Atheist Prime Minister of Australia

Australia now has an atheist, redheaded, working class, woman prime minister.
And you Americans thought getting a black guy was a long shot!!
Talk about made my day, when in one of her first public interviews our new PM Julia Gillard professed that she was a lapsed baptist who is actually an atheist because she just cant bring herself to believe in it all. You go girl!!!

Oops, I should also mention that her declaration of being atheist does make me feel all warm and fuzzy and proud being an Aussie.

Full quote:

"We believe the marriage act is appropriate in its current form, that is recognising that marriage is between a man and a woman, but we have as a government taken steps to equalise treatment for gay couples," Ms Gillard said.

How can gay be equal if they can't get married? Mind you, I don't see the issue for an atheist gay couple. I would not have married my wife if I had known back then what I know now. And in fact, neither her nor I bother to wear our rings any more. They don't symbolise anything. We love each other and we know it. That's all that matters and no piece of paper or metal band would change that.

Good, but still in the stone age when it comes to gay marriage. Really odd someone so seemingly smart could be so stupid on this issue:
