"Can't a guy get any rest around here?!"

It's weird how rarely they find skeleton archers. If games have taught me anything, at least half of all skeletons are archers.

I hope he lived a good fulfilling life in the Great Valley. Just as his mother wanted.

This is so clearly the work of the devil trying to deceive us.  Teach the controversy!

Hamas Leader Haniyeh Calls For Intifada Against Israel Over Jerusalem Status

Hamas Leader Haniyeh Calls For Intifada Against Israel Over Jerusalem Status

They called for one after Israel placed metal detector on Temple Mount to stop terrorist attacks.

Hamas is a joke.

About two years of stabbing/shooting attacks in the Temple Mount.

Israeli female soldier killed in a shooting by a terrorist hiding among Muslims worshippers.

Israel finally takes measures to prevent smuggling weapons into the Temple Mount.

Hamas calls for intifada for Israelis taking measures to prevent terror attacks.

Logic.

A "real" third Intifada would have a huge impact on the region.

Love always wins! Proud to be Australian in this moment of history.

I didn't think this day would come for a long time. This comes after months of a national optional survey conducted by the government on the topic, full of arguments and some very rude graffiti everywhere, which ended with a 61% majority for Yes. Had it not been a majority this government would not have passed it.

And Australia slowly makes it way into the 21st century.

On ya, 'straya!

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 90%. (I'm a bot)

Australia, which changed the law in 2004 to say that marriage is only between a man and a woman, now joins 24 countries which recognise same-sex marriage.

In a bruising three-month campaign, opponents of marriage equality claimed same-sex marriage would have far-reaching negative consequences for gender education and claimed it would harm religious freedom and freedom of speech.

The yes camp's Equality Campaign combined with moderate Liberals, Labor, the Greens, unions and the progressive campaign organisation Get Up to argue that same-sex marriage was a matter of equality and fairness.

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 89%. (I'm a bot)

SAME-sex marriage has been made legal in Australia after politicians voted in a landslide today to pass the historic bill.

Earlier, same-sex marriage opponent Kevin Andrews was slammed on social media for his final speech on same sex marriage just moments before the final vote.

MPs voted down a series of amendments on the same-sex marriage bill this morning but were unable to conclude debate before the beginning of Question Time at 2pm AEDT. Another amendment on legal protections for charities was voted down at about 3.30pm. It's expected a final vote could be held before 6pm. Malcolm Turnbull refused to cancel Question Time today to continue the debate on the remaining amendments.
