yay canada!

Canada approves same-sex marriage

glad to see another country in the world with more sense than the United States.

hell, polar opposites on the sense scale. I mean, they put it into law to permit it, and what is Bush trying to do? get a Constitutional Amendment to ban it.

I'm moving to germany (taking the plane tomorrow night) to go study in berlin, and possibly stay there for awhile ( my bf is german... and when we met he moved to canada, so I have at least 4 years to go to equalize things:)

Phreadom said...

so he's moving with you? or is he already back there?

well stay there !go bush i hope the amendment pass's it should save the family stop the death of it it was adam and eve not adam and steve

haha... that comment is a brilliantly concise statement proving how stupid you are. bravo! :-D

let's see... the idea of a family being a father, mother and child is a rather modern concept relatively speaking. the last few hundred years, primarily in the united states. historically not even a drop in the bucket. not to mention that it's actually proven that statistically same sex couples have raise children in a BETTER environment because the children are generally planned for and very well taken care of by 2 loving parents.

adam and eve are fictional characters, so any "proof" based on them is utterly useless.

and pushing for a constitutional amendment to deprive citizens of their rights rather than protecting them... ranking 2 normal loving adults who love each other as any differently than 2 other loving adults that love each other, simply because your millenia old storybook tells you so (along with telling you to kill your own children, murder rape victims, kill babies, castrate yourself, etc etc)...

not to mention that you type like a dyslexic 3 year old...

again.. bravo! I don't think I could make you look more foolish than you make yourself look. :')

I love how the government just lies and lies and lies. And how they ignore the opinions of those within the country.

Polls showed that 75% of Canadians did not want same-sex marriages aprroved. But the government, who "represents the people", voted to extend parliament so that they could pass the bill, which had been rushed through all the preliminary things a law is supposed to go through. It was rushed through and did not go through the proper scrutiny that a normal law is supposed to go through.

Not to mention that Martin promised he would wait until the fall to pass the same sex legislation.

I'm not overly upset that it has been passed - it was obvious that it would happen anyways, in our country's desire to be politically correct. To me, the passing of the bill demonstrates the government's willingness to lie and bend the rules when it suits their own interest.

if you can point me to some pages that detail the information you're talking about, I'd be interested in reading them.

also, it sounds like you have a problem with the idea of same sex marriage for some reason? and/or feel that the legislation itself was lacking in some sense?

from everything I've read, the legislation was written to cover all the bases etc. as far as how it got pushed through, I wasn't aware of anything like what you're referring to, but who knows. I'm just glad that something intelligent and correct got pushed through... not politically correct. if anything, same sex marriage is politically incorrect... and your alluding to the contrary makes me question your stance all the more.
