In this Sept. 1, 2013 photo, Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd speaks to the crowd during the Australian Labor Party's campaign launch in Brisbane, Australia. Rudd has mounted a spirited defense of same-sex marriage only days out from Australian elections. Rudd announced in May that he had reconsidered his opposition to same-sex marriage, and he promised to hold a Parliamentary vote on allowing gay couples to marry within 100 days if his center-left Labor Party wins the election. Rudd was questioned about his new stance at a nationally broadcast forum in his hometown of Brisbane late Monday, Sept. 2, 2013 by New Hope Church Pastor Matt Prater. (AP Photo/Tertius Pickard) less
