Will Church halls be forced to hold same-sex marriage ceremonies?

Will Church halls be forced to hold same-sex marriage ceremonies?

A:

No. It will continue to be consistent with existing anti-discrimination laws. Religious exemptions under the Bill and the Sex Discrimination Act apply to facilities, goods and services provided by religious organisations. For example, a mosque, synagogue, temple or church hall used by a congregation for important religious rites could be refused as a venue for a same-sex wedding.
