|Message||Surely you dont want to seriously legalize gay sex or adoption? Gays and children...they dont seem to mix very well.|
Then there is article 2, really that only deals with the concept of "marriage" which, for some odd reason we can't really put our finger on, is supposed to be sacred. Indirectly, maybe, in some minor way, if a gay couple were to be permitted to say the word "marriage", instead of "domestic partnership" or "civil union", well, it just seems to us that straight people might not like marriage very much any more...
Considering that they deserve to live in a world where only their stereotypes of sex and other issues are permitted, it's only fair that we give them the right to a nation without recognized homosexuality. Because...the Pope says so. And it's probably wrong, according to a really old book that still sells fairly well.

|Message||Is there no response? Where are the parties who vote against our righteous bills? Why are they so silent?|
They claim the moral high ground when they dont even attempt to justify their immorality.

Then they came for the trade unionists and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me--and by that time no one was left to speak up." - Pastor Martin Niemoller|
