Marriage rights - for witches
Last month, Victoria became the last Australian jurisdiction to repeal anti-witchcraft laws. Part of the Vagrancy Act of 1958 outlawed "fortune telling and pretending to exercise witchcraft" as well as "any occult or crafty science."; additional penalties were proscribed for "any kind of witchcraft, sorcery, enchantment or conjuration.". With this repeal of the Act, pagan officiants are now recognized as legally allowed to perform weddings in Australia; four have already been certified by the state, and are apparently being flooded with requests for ceremonies.
