I've got a solution! Let gays and lesbians establish their own nation with their own Constitution. There, they can marry, propagate and circumvent
all that silliness of living in a nation founded on religious principles......you know, like the UK, US, Saudi Arabia, India, and practically
EVERY NATION on EARTH!
Is there a religion on earth where gay and lesbian "marriages" are "sacred"?

Oh my god! Yes, I said GOD! Does that offend you?
And yes, there is a religion where gay people are recognized and respected as equals in all aspects, look up "Paganism". You know, that ancient
belief system that the invaders tried to wipe out and replace with their own?
Seriously, some people are so moronic I wonder how they manage to breathe without constant care.
This is not about the "sanctity of marriage", if it were, the various churches would be doing something about the massive divorce rates. Where's
your "sanctity of marriage" there?
This is about gay people having equality. I do not know which laws are in place discriminating against gay people there, but in the UK, you could be
made homeless if your partner of fifty years died, you could be refused visitation rights in hospital, you'd be taxed to the hilt on inheritance...
the list goes on.
I have no idea what makes some people (like CreeWolf) think that their way of life is somehow more acceptable or superior than another (I have a
distinct feeling this comes back to Right-Wing fundamental Christians again though), or why they think others deserve less rights, less freedoms and
less basic respect.
It has no effect on you how others choose to live, and you have ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT to try to dictate to others how they should live when it has no
bearing on your existence.
What does it matter to you if a gay man or lesbian woman can visit their partner in hospital, or leave their home to their partner? Fact is, it
shouldn't matter to you at all, but it does because you (like so many other religious fanatics) believe that you have a right to tell other people
that they must live by your rules.
The video was yet more propaganda. I'm as fed up as those guys there of hearing right-wing fanatics trying to be the next Hitler and giving their
religious freedom as an excuse to dictate to the masses.
This was a democratic decision, and the fight to repeal it should be democratic too, without all the fanatics using the cross to hide their bigotry
Now, if you don't mind, I'm going to take a walk, and try to forget that there are some truly hateful people in this world.
