Gay marriage – for better or for worse?
Last updated at 14:53, Tuesday, 06 March 2012
Marriage is the union of a woman and a man. Or possibly in future, a woman and a woman or a man and a man.
Have your say
@Ian. "In that context, being a slave or a king for your time on earth doesn't really amount to much." and that, right there, is the harm of religion. It makes you satisfied with injustice in the here-and-now with the promise of jam tomorrow.
Special privilege? We still have Sunday trading laws. Wearing a crucifix when there is a no jewellery dress code, yes that's special privilege. Faith schools? The very manifestation of privilege. Have you religious indoctrination paid for by the tax payer! Of course that is privilege.
@Ian. When two people love each other and want to declare their commitment to each other before their community there is a perfectly good word to use. That word is marriage. Why invent a new one? Unless you are trying to say that the union of two gay people is in some way inferior to our heterosexual marriage.
I myself a gay man strongrly agree that we should have the same rights as hetrosexual people. there is this big thing in the world that homosexual people are sick or its wrong .. isnt this a fragment of the mind , and morally wrong statement made by the general public ! BACK GAY MARRAIGE ALL THE WAY!
