A leading Australian bridal magazine has shut after being ditched by advertisers for refusing to feature same-sex couples, one year after the country changed its marriage laws.
The Christian founders of "White", Luke and Carla Burrell, said they did not feature gay weddings in their magazine as they had "no desire to create a social, political or legal war".
In a farewell blog on Saturday, the couple said they were targeted by activists because of their stance and forced to "pick a side".
As a result, several advertisers withdrew their sponsorship making their publication "no longer economically viable", the pair added.

Goalposts have moved again.
It is no longer enough to remain silent on the subject of gay marriage. If you do that, they'll come for you.
In another fit of "if you're not with us you're against us!!!" the gay mafia managed to get the magazine closed down. Not because the publication or the owners were anti-gay, but because they refused to bow to the Don and kiss the ring. It is no longer sufficient to just be quiet, now you have to actively go along and promote the cause.
I predict this will not end well for anyone.
