Good to see imho, everyone should have the right to be who they are and express themselves in whatever way they see fit. Nice to see Gov'ts standing up for the rights of people.


Its great that it's become a visible Global Equal Rights movement.

Through pressure from the UN - - even the least tolerant countries are - - at least - - lessening penalties of LGBT.

When your married its all the same sex anyway, so whats the problem? Now if they said that they want to legalize Scots marrying sheep......then you'd have a problem.

Well - until sheep evolve enough to be able to speak.

They can't give their consent. Gotta have that Adult Consent.

here is the definition of marriage;

mar·riage/ˈmarij/Noun: 1.The formal union of a man and a woman, typically recognized by law, by which they become husband and wife.
2.A relationship between married people or the period for which it lasts.



Must be an old dictionary.


Still a proper definition, regardless of age.


Nope - I believe the definition has changed, since gay marriage is legal in some U.S. states, and in several countries - recognized by law.



So it's legal in some us cities, that justifies a new definition....because us Americans are always right.

Note the sarcasm.

Aren't Scotland and England ruled by Great Britain?

Isn't this part of a Equality movement for all of Great Britain?

I could be wrong. But - I think that's how I read it.

No Scotland and England are part of the UK. The UK is made up of Scotland, England, Wales and N.I

However countries such as Scotland have their own parliament which has the power to create laws in Scotland and such but it doesn't have complete control as it has lesser powers in Westminster.

This decision was taken by the ruling party in the Scottish parliament - The Scottish Nationalist Party- and It will only affect those in Scotland.

Thanks. I like facts. I never mind being wrong - - its part of learning.

I used to have a chat buddy from Scotland. She was a supporter of Scotland's independence. The forum was closed. I miss her.

Anyway - - I do get UK and GB mixed up. I'm probably not the only one

Its a shame the ancient and beautiful ceremony of Marriage is being ruined by liberals and athiests.



Its a shame Equal Rights is being ruined by closed minded - judgmental Fundamentalists.

And I doubt any marriage ceremony will be more beautiful then when Gays do it.

Kind of ironic - - that the Sistine Chapel - - one of the most beautiful religious artworks in the world - - was done by a Gay dude.

You already have equal rights. You have all the same rights given to anyone else. What you want is special rights.

I just celebrated my 20th anniversary with my husband.

The only "special rights" - - are the RIGHTS included with Legal Government Marriage. Which every American couple (hetero/homo) Equally has a right to.
