Australia’s High Court has overturned legislation allowing gay marriage in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).
The ACT parliament passed a bill in October making the territory the first part of Australia to legalise same-sex weddings.
But the national government challenged the decision, saying it was inconsistent with federal laws.
Some 27 couples who married since the law came into effect last weekend will now have their unions declared invalid.
The legislation had allowed gay couples to marry inside the ACT, which includes the Australian capital, Canberra – regardless of which state they live in.
Federal law, however, specified in 2004 that marriage was between a man and a woman.
Civil unions are allowed in some states in Australia.
Attorney-General George Brandis had previously warned that the local law would face a legal challenge, because it was inconsistent with the country’s Marriage Act.

When the center-left government of Norway was replaced in September, a lot of Norwegians proclaimed a new area for Christians.
I voiced my objections, and sad: “The process of damaging our culture and society will just slow down”.
The new Conservative Government in Australia is a brilliant example of the lowing down process. While sodomy and sexual perversion is crippling many European nations, Australia has put on the brakes.
In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.
The Bible is crystal clear that sodomy is sin, perversion and rebellion against God the Creator. Those who want to escape the fire of Hell, must repent. Change their ways, and beg Jesus the Messiah for mercy.
The problem with a democratic system, is that people can chose to be run by both dictators and perverts. So of the Australians turn away form God, there will surly come a new Prime Minister who, again, will legalize sodomy.
