Will religious organisations be allowed to refuse to provide facilities, goods or services for same-sex weddings?

Will religious organisations be allowed to refuse to provide facilities, goods or services for same-sex weddings?

A:

Yes, but only to the extent allowed under existing anti-discrimination laws.

Currently, the Sex Discrimination Act allows bodies established for religious purposes to refuse to provide facilities, goods or services where consistent with their religion’s doctrines, tenets or beliefs or where necessary to avoid injury to the religious susceptibilities of their followers.
