Grant Morrison’s run on JLA is rather infamous for its rather extreme snapbacks. Premised on the idea of the JLA being an allegory for a pantheon of gods, it was decided that the JLA (being made up of seven of the heaviest of the heavy hitters in the DCU; Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman http://thaibanglaholiday.com/?p=1177, and Martian Manhunter) would only tackle huge, often literally world shattering events. Threats included but were not limited to: an assault on Earth (okay, San Francisco) by renegade angels from Heaven, a war between two nigh omnipotent djinn that threw the Earth and moon around like basketballs, not one but two mass invasions by White Martians, and (as a grand finale) a massive galaxy killing superweapon that was defeated by granting temporary superpowers to THE ENTIRE POPULATION OF EARTH. The snapback from that final arc (awesome though it is) is enough to give you whiplash. The entire human race apparently suffers no consequences, societal changes or other effects from acquiring superpowers, fighting a galaxy killing superweapon, and then losing those powers again; in fact, they never even bring it up. Not even in a “Oh, it’s Batman: I sure wish I had superpowers again right now” kind of way.
The push to extend same sex marriage bill amendments to include service providers like florists or bakers is over. (Reuters: Enrique Castro Mendivil )Save the date: Here when the first same sex weddings could happenBakers, florists and other service providers will not be exempt from discrimination laws, meaning they will not be allowed to refuse to provide services for same sex weddings.Key points:James Paterson and David Fawcett will not continue the argument that florists and bakers should be able to say no to same sex weddingsBut they will introduce five other amendments, including having two definitions for marriageLabor, Greens have said they will strongly resist changes to parts of the bill around discriminationThe Senate is considering Liberal Dean Smith’s same sex marriage bill and will debate a range of amendments this week.But the push is over to extend the amendments to include service providers like florists or bakers.Liberal senators James Paterson and David Fawcett will not continue the argument that those service providers should be able to say no to a same sex wedding if they are opposed to gay marriage.But the two senators have flagged they will introduce five other amendments, including having two definitions for marriage.They want to keep the definition of marriage as being between a man and a woman as well as having a separate definition that covers same sex couples that says “marriage is the union of two people to the exclusion of all others”.The two senators argue that having both definitions clarifies that both views are legitimately held.Bid for two definitions of marriageThe amendments also said faith based organisations should not lose charitable status if they believe that marriage should only be between a man and a woman.Parents would also be given the right to withdraw children from some classes if they believed what was being taught was in conflict with their moral or religious beliefs.Senator Smith’s bill allows for religious ministers to be able to refuse to conduct same sex weddings, but senators Paterson and Fawcett want to extend that to civil marriage celebrants.Attorney General George Brandis has also flagged a similar amendment.More than bakers and florists There is more to Paterson’s amendments than the ideological concerns of the ultra right, writes Mark Fowler.Greens senator Janet Rice said her party would be resisting any changes that extended discriminations against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex people.”In particular the bill already contains quite sufficient protections for religious organisations and for ministers who are going to be able to continue to discriminate,” Senator Rice said.”We very strongly believe that civil celebrants should not be able to discriminate,” she said, describing it as a secular marriage rather than a religious marriage.Senator Rice said she had been told about 3 per cent of existing civil celebrants had concerns about conducting same sex marriages.”Our position is even those celebrants, as civil celebrants, should have to abide by the laws of the land and so have to solemnise all weddings if approached to do so,” she said.Tasmanian Liberal senator Eric Abetz told Parliament the Smith bill would change the definition of marriage in a way he says ns did not consent to.Senator Abetz was a prominent No campaigner during the same sex marriage postal survey.He said the same sex marriage bill also allowed intersex and people of non binary gender to marry and that was not what ns voted on.
