|Message||To all parties: This bill is not about the right to get married (if there is such a thing). This is about equality, and the end to the medieval practise of discriminating against someone because of their sexuality. I mean, this is the 30th Century! Surely we can all treat human beings... like human beings.|

|Message||OOC: CPD, i'm rp a populist party, but that does not mean we are right-wing, we are not right-winged nor left-winged, we are simply populist and regarding social issues ultraliberal, and regarding economical and immigration issues conservative, just some sort of new populism. 30th century populism ;), we are willing to cooperate with all parties, except fundamentalist religious parties, and anti-civil rights parties.|

|Message||IC: We have to treat human beings like human beings, and if some sort of God created all men equal, why should not homosexuals be equal? Equal rights for everybody, that should be the goal of Darnussia.|

|Message||All men are equally guilty yes, and perhaps equally valuable in the eyes of God, that does not mean that the things they do to make them guilty are right. Is a homosexual no more or less valuble to God than a man who is completely straight and has never even had sex outside of marriage with a women, yes. But it has nothing to do with the fact that he is a homosexual, it has to do with the fact that he is human.|

|Message||And the point I just made is irrelevent, because it is not a political argument, and this is a political situation. We do not support government recognition of civil marriages whatsoever.|

|Message||The point I was trying to make was that all men are naturally sinful. Not all men commit the same actions, but they are all guilty of some type sin, and in God's eyes, no sin is acceptable, that is why it is called sin.|

|Message||Yes, alright. We understand you do not support recognition of civil marriages, but that doesn't mean you can deny homosexuals the same opportunities as heterosexuals.|

I do not attempt to deny homosexuals the same opportunities has heterosexuals, where did you get that from? I do not support the criminalization of homosexuality, infact, I support the opposite. This does not mean I think homosexuality is right. My political views are not necessarily coming from the Bible, I don't know what makes you think this.
|Random fact: The default rule is that role-play events can only be done with the consent of all of the players in the nation or nations concerned, and that if one of the players withdraws consent for the role-play, then the role-play becomes void. However, there are procedures available to overcome the risk of a role-play being brought down like this. These procedures cannot compel players to actively participate in a role-play, but they do oblige them not to stand in the way of them and to recognise their legitimacy under the rules.|
