Comment 2 by Macropus :

This is what it is to have an atheist head of government who is terrified of offending religion. Granted, she's on a political knife-edge with a tiny majority, but she knows she will lose the next election anyway, and should be supporting these long-overdue reforms. At least she would have something to show for six otherwise undistinguished years in government.

They fail to notice that by continually appeasing a minority who will never vote for them, and will never be satisfied by any appeasement (witness the routing of Labor in the Queensland state election, and what the Christian right voters said), they betray their voting base, who now wander off to greener pastures.
