And the fabric of your country's society remains intact? And your country hasn't gone to Hell in a handbasket?


Shucks! I guess those "Family Values" folks were wrong!

This is good news, however there has been a glitch (at least in Vermont.) There is no provision for divorce from the same sex marriages.

This seems to be a problem now.
yeah, I could be wrong but I was always under the impression that Vermont allowed legal unions but not actual marriages. Maybe I just misunderstood the definitions? It wouldn't be the first time

They are legalizing dope, they were not "with us" against Iraq.

And many Canadian speak French.

Who needs them, anyway.

Was all this sarcastic?

Actually, we already stole those from you and now have a yearly Ottawa tulip festival.

So we're ahead of the game.

I hesitate to cheer yet, because there are some cranky straight MPs who still want to rain on the parade.

Ultimately, what it shows, at the end of the day, is that, outside of the moralist rhetoric, it doesn't affect heterosexual marriage at all. Period. The religious right will continue to not recognize it, just as the Catholic Church hasn't recognized Protestant marriages from the start (yes, all you married non-Catholics are living in sin technically, in the eyes of the Church). However, do Protestants give a flying fuck at the end of the day? Not at all, and the same goes with gays and gay marriage. The only reason people care is because they have been indoctrinated to, and when people finally wake up one day from their coma, they'll realize that it changes absolutely nothing about their lives.

But, as I've said, I find it difficult to cheer something that still possibly maybe could be taken away...

Your gripe with the church's angle and the religious point of view in general sums up how I feel about it in general. Homosexuality as a whole affects only those it involves. I really couldn't care less about 2 men loving each other, or wanting to marry each other any more than I could about Arthur and Martha from Alice Springs wanting to tie the knot. It makes no difference to me in any way at all. I completely lack an understanding of why 2 stranger's lives matter to anyone who isn't associated with them. I hope this doesn't sound cold, as like Arthur and Martha, I offer them my fleeting best wishes and move on with life. The real difference here is, of course Michael and Michael have this brick wall of countless people who DO care about them getting married and as a result, couples like them often have to miss out. This story is possibly a huge step forward for homosexuals, and I hope that nothing crops up to stop them and future men wanting to follow suit and actually being able to.
Actually, you made me laugh melon, I'm a Catholic living in sin through no fault of my own. The Catholic Church was the one who refused me to marry in their church and have the hide to imply it is sinful. If I could give a shit about the opinion of a hypocritical institution that cannot even acknowledge its own failings, I might be closer to understanding the hurt that others experience at the church's hand. But alas.
