Not Just a Man and a Woman in Canada

The Supreme Court in Canada looks likely to legalize same-sex marriage later today, December 9th. If this happens, Canada will be one of the few countries in the world to give such a blessing.

Just wondering what U2 would think of such unions...they are a band who are both immersed in religion--and seemingly open-minded and tolerant of minority groups. Where do you think they stand?

Where do YOU stand?

Where do I stand? I think this thread is an interesting one that deserves discussion, but it is in the wrong section!

Good for Canada. As for U2 I can't really speak for them but I would take an educated guess and say they were for it..

i think it's a huge step in the right direction. great day for canada.

*edit: this was just the supreme court giving the ok to the legislature to go ahead and make the legislation that will legalize same-sex marriage. it's not a done deal yet, but we're on our on way.

in a similar vein, new zealand recently passed legislation allowing for same-sex civil unions.

From what I've heard, the Canadian government has taken measures to reduce that crowd from coming in. Otherwise, I think Canada would become overpopulated.

Since I hear Melon wants to move to Canada, I am hoping he finds love and gets married.

I want to be there!
