House passes same-sex marriage bill

Scores of same-sex American couples came to Canada to be married. Thousands of Canadians exercised their new right.
Overall there wouldn't be be a significant change in the country. Same-sex marriage has been legal in most of the provinces for awhile already. This Federal same-sex marriage law will be applied to all the provinces now.

Canada is now the third country to have same-sex marriage legalize.

It's good progress... but some countries and a lot of people aren't ready for that.

lol. Some ex-soldier from vietnam got married to another man and when he died that other man wanted 'war-widow' compensation, which is given to the widows of soldiers and ex-soldiers. Government said stfu so he went to the UN and they replied: we think your government should loosen its under pants but we can't force 'em.

This happened a while ago BTW.

This is actually quite an interesting topic: if they get married should there be a definate husband and wife in the marriage for such situations you think?

Social conservatives will beyotch and whine about the decline of morality and how the evil "homos" will corrupt the children and destroy Western civilization... Quite honestly, I love all this "fire and brimstone" BS because it makes religious/social conservatives look ridiculous and will come to bite them in the ass since almost none of their apocalyptic predictions will come to pass.

On a side note, I'm becoming even more disgusted of Jack Layton and Paul Martin's political marriage of convenience... it should be a free vote regardless of the official party line. Jack Layton is a left-wing, smug, do-nothing Canadian politician (and he has the gall to think he speaks for Canadians, f*** him)... he's punishing the only NDP member who voted against the measure. Yup, way to promote democracy, dumbass.

Give it a few more years and something bad will happen to the world powers, what with rising fuel costs and wars it would be like that quote from 'three dollars': "...it's how healthy people feel in unhealthy times"

My dear, ofcourse it is the way to promote democracy! Look at the USA, a fine democratic country and example for the whole world! Don't you see how they push other countries around and call it democracy?

You sound like Stephen Harper, the leader of Conservatives when he complained that votes from the Bloc were not legitimate for the same-sex bill.

As Gilles Duceppe would say, “Our mandate is every bit as legitimate as any member who sits in this chamber. That’s what they call democracy.”

32 Liberals did vote against the bill so it is democracy in action.

Technically all the members of parliament SHOULD be voting to represent their constituents. However there is also an underlying rule to follow party line. So... this particular decision was a difficult thing to choose over. However, should things like this be left to majority rule? I dont think so, as sometimes the majority isnt right.

Overall I think its a good decision, and we shall see how it plays out. I am really sick of hearing the religious complaint about "oh its not the path of god!!!1". Really, tell me what is wrong other than this theoretical religious bull****. please.

So true yet for somereason democracy advocates it in many ways... as the guy in MIB 1 siad: "Person is smart, people are dumb panicking dangerous idiots..."

Well, gay people where the first in the world to be diagnosed with aids... and it has never been acceptable in almost any society since written history began. However in a world like this the state should not be ruled by any individual religionanyway, so its no excuse...

first of all the USA doesn't have to accept a marriage from another country and individual states don't have to accept a gay marriage that was done in massechusetts. Second of all i hope all the gay people here move to Canada, just like all of the cowards who ducked out of vietnam.

You callin' Muhammad Ali a coward? Why don't you move to the Middle East, that seems to be the only place with people as unaccepting of others as you.

Dont even bother with him, its not worth the effor to get some one so naive to change the way he thinks. Maybe we can get Boltz or Proto to give us some info on how natural selection kills off things like that.

I hardly think i'm naive. Someone that is naive doesn't have any common sense. Bringing Boltz or Proto, whom think that their own transhuman ideas are supreme over all the universe, into this could only start a flame war in which neither side can be proven right.

I really think that Tolerance is the most retarded thing ever. Why should i have to tolerate corporate scandle, scandle in government, moral degradation, poor service, etc,etc..? Tolerance will be the down fall of everything good our society has. When my father was a kid there was ONE MURDER ALL YEAR and it was a public outrage. Now there are several dozens of muders every year which no one cares about (aka tolerates). And even when a cop is murdered it's reported on the news as "unfortunate"). So when i say i'm intolerant of gay people it's probably for the best of this country because if we just stand here and do nothing about it the world will look more and more like MTV reality shows which scares the **** out of me.

Oh yes. I forgot that has EVERYTHING to do with gay marriage. How about gun control? Education? Poverty? But you know, lets just dump the blame on the gays.

Seta-San: One Murder All Year? .. what year was your dad living in? Murder has been a problem no matter what era you lived in. You truely are naive. Gay people are no different then you or me. They are humans that deserve every right that everyone else has. I speaking of the law, they should be allowed civil unions. As for religion let the church deal with that.

You come off as separatist and I wouldn't doubt you would be all for no rights for blacks and women if you lived during those times. If anything its people like you who are so closed minded that we have such an ugly history in America when it comes to treating minorities (black, indian, gays, or whatever might be the flavor of the era).

i never said the everything has to do with gay marriage. I'm saying that it's just one more step down on social ladder. My ideas of an ideal world is what America was in the 1950s minus the racism. I believe in gun control, but on the other hand i don't believe in getting rid of all guns. The only guns people should be able to own should only carry one shot and should have to take a little time to reload. But meh.. just so long as you all think that you're great "forward thinking intellectuals" I suppose it'll be near impossible to convince yourself of the painful truth while you're having your delusions of grandeur.

and yes keith. In omaha nebraska there was a year where there was one murder all year and to the citizens it was one murder too many. What year was it... Can't exactly remember it was in the 50s or early 60s.

delusions of grandeur? .. you must be the one that is delusional if you think the 50's were any better then today. Every era has its social problems and there is no perfect world or time. Segregation is a big thing to just take out to have your perfect world considering this was the mind set of the people of that time. If it wasn't blacks it would be something else. There has never been a time where people were equal and the reason that is, is because of the type of thinking you express. You would rather surpress then accept which really shows how weak you are. It takes a bigger person to respect the wishes of others and to have a fully understanding of what they are rather then live in fear of what you don't know or can't accept.

This sucks. :hdbash: The humans are going down to the animals. Humans were given Brain and superiority was given over animals Because they have the so-called brain. But look they disgust it. spoil it in the mud. Disgracing the name of Humans.

Anyways, oO what do you get when Same-Sex marry each other? What about the honour :2love: held when Two opposite Sex-marry? oO Does the same thing apply for the Same-Sex Married couples?They get nothing. But they wouldn't have worries about getting children and all... hehe. :laugh: thats a sucking thought by most people who do those kinds of marriages.

I once heard the following:
Two males got married (U.S). and the parents of the two were asked how they feel
and guess what they said..... "We are Happy if they are Happy"

This totally sucks :spy: and the ones who made this legal have nuts in their brains. They need to clear them off.
Imagine George W Bush Getting Married to Clinton.
and what about Michael Jackson???? Alton John????
:lol:

(in reply to Seta-San .. his post seems to be deleted now though where he reposted about wanting the 50's minus the racism)

To be honest it wouldn't be the same minus the racism or Segregation. What exactly would you do with the people that you say do not belong such as gays? You practicly borderline on being a separatist wanting a time where only people who you feel fits your mold should be allowed. This is what caused Segregation in the first place .. jeebus. :p

RealOne: What exactly makes you any different then a person that prefers same sex marriage? So they are animals? Kind of like when people felt Native Americans were Savages, and Blacks were a lesser man because of their skin color. It is always an excuse to make the one type better then other. Man so much closed mindeness. Do you seriously think you are better then the average gay man? Please explain why?

Then maybe America will have only 1000 americans.:lol:
IMO, I think that we should let gay people be what they want. If we deny them marriage, then they will still live together, so nothing changes. Let them be what they want, it doesn`t affect my decision at all. And if gay people are carying diseases, then have doctors to try and find a cure or to privent diseases, cause whatever people do, they`ll still be gay.
