    Look at the very bottom… “David Hodorowski hosts the new weekly variety show Pickle Tickle on Wed 7.”

    Pickle Tickle, huh? Now that’s interesting…

    The only reason for a binding contract is to protect the innocents – i.e. the kids. This modern western notion that marriage, straight gay or otherwise is about “declaring our undying love” as if it’s something special and unique seems self indulgent to me.

    Gay marriage is a moral issue. So is foisting your beliefs on others. So, IMHO two people who want to get married, divorced, snoggled, etc. that’s pretty much their business only. If they demand you honor or respect or otherwise recognize that fact, that’s up to you. But I’d suggest you try treat everybody equally. Now if your beliefs demand you try to prevent others from equal protection under the law, I’d suggest that you ought to resist that urge and learn to live and let live. You’ll be happier for it.

    This is hysterical!

    As a conservative bible believing American Christian, I have to say that I personally do not have anything ‘against’ Gay Marriage, rights adoption or whatever. It their choice, it’s fine. What does bother me is the limiting of
    1) Free speech against a lifestyle, I’m not talking hate speech, injury,etc. I’m talking about the hypocrisy of condemning others for not supporting what gay community, when all the while accusing us of the same thing. Do I believe homosexuality is Biblical, not at all. Do you care, why would you. You believe it’s fine, then fine. Horrible circle argument.
    2) Special allowances and laws to protect a particular people group while limiting others. Example, a bakery prefers not to bake a cake for a gay wedding, the gay couple go nuts and sue the company. Nothing is done to protect the business but everything comes alongside the gay couple. Limiting their rights to free speech and government infringing on privately held businesses.

    I am in no way a spineless weak Christian, I won’t embrace Homosexuality as a Biblical relationship, but in that I do have same freedom to believe and think the way I do, is just as much a right for the gay community.

      If a bakery refused to serve me because I have dark skin, would you say that is ok?

      Giving people the right not to be discriminated against by people who started a business, and in doing so agreed to abide by the rules of business (including non-discrimination) is not being discriminatory against the business, it is allowing gay men and women the same basic right we all have: recieving a service without it depending on our colour, gender, status in society, or who we chose to marry.
