Canada legalizes gay marriages

Postby Dixie » Wed Jun 29, 2005 9:01 pm

Yesterday, Canada legalized marriage between people of the same sex. It's the third state, after Belgium and the Netherlands, in doing so ;)

Great news! I applaud!

I am glad that in some generous countries like Canada, gays and lesbians can finally be considered as ordinary people, instead of monsters and weirdies. I hope I can see the same scene happens in China in the near future. but I know, here in China, we still have a long way...

It won't change anything. They are just making themselvs into an even bigger side show by trying to pretend that they are "ordinary people".

It does not matter so much if you, I or someone else personally find it "acceptable", we all can have our own opinions about it BUT what I do miss in your and in mr_love's post, is respect. They are just normal people and in my personal opinion, they do not deserve to be talked about as 'disgusting'. No one has to agree with gay marriage, but it would be nice to just show respect to people, no matter what their lifestyle is.

Freedom of speech works both ways, buddy boy. We are espesially entitled to display our disgust at changes in laws that we believe undermines our values. Don't pretend that disgust for the homosexual lifestyle is a new or unusual reaction. For thousands of years our forefathers have known that two men co-habitating have no buisiness claiming the umberella of marriage.
I find it shocking that anyone would accept this barbarity in this supposedly enlightened age.
