    Love Thy Neighbour, and Marry Him Too

    Stardate 4273.0

    Senate passes same-sex legislation

    Canada has become the 4th nation in the world to allow same-sex marriages. The Senate voted 47-21 in favor of Bill C-38. Only 3 Senators abstained from the vote. Courts in 7 Canadian provinces say that the traditional definition of marriage violates the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

    Somehow, I doubt Alberta was one of the seven. Stephen Harper, being the crazy Bush lovin nut he is, said he will bring the debate back to the burner if he is elected Prime Minister. Good luck pal. Not on my ship mister... :D

    The Bill will become law once Royal assent is given today.

    I haven't said a lot on this before. I suppose maybe it is because I don't *know* any homosexual people... At any rate, believe it or not, I have a somewhat *gasp* conservative view on this. I think my main issue is a social issue, that being the upbringing of children. Don't get me wrong, I would never ever suggest that two men, or two women could not be good parents. But the problem I see is that children have enough issues growing up at school, with friends, sex, drugs, weight... now Johnny might have to deal with the fact that his parents are both Lumberjacks :D

    Still, the thing that is GOOD about this, is that as a nation, Canada stands for true freedoms and equality. While freedom is slowly disappearing to the south of us, we can stand tall and resolute, and back up the eqaulity of ALL people, whether based on color, religion, sexual orientation or whatever.

    It makes me proud to be Canadian!


    The Royal Assent has been received! Super duper I say :D

    All opinions shared on this site are strictly my own. Some people may disagree and that is fine, but rude comments or overzealous debate will be curtailed. I enjoy civil discourse, and encourage independent thought. I oppose George W. Bush and his Wars based on lies.
