but this isnt about gay marriage, its about same sex marriage. This bill will allow me, as a heterosexual man, to marry another heterosexual man if I so wish. However, this brings with it a level of inequality, because, as the law stands, I can't enter into a civil partnership with a heterosexual, or homosexual woman, I can only marry her! So same sex couples, whether gay or straight, will have more rights than different sex couples!

I am against homosexual marriages but I am not against equal rights. This Delmar says my beliefs are being corrupted into saying equality means every situations as two sides. I have to place my attitude on how my grandparents would have considered had some person said one-day man would set foot on the moon. They would no doubt consider purveyor of this kind of statement to be lacking in grey matter. Now we have seen things happen that years ago would not have been envisage by ordinary everyday people.
We are taught to love our parents, and grandparents, bother and sisters. Even to love our enemies. So if two people male or female fall in love then the fact that our world is progressing, so should our consideration for things that once appeared alien to how we had been taught. Everything changes, so why not our laws on same sex unification.
