Hey Swede -- since same-sex marriage has been legal in Sweden since 2009, how come we haven't heard about the fire and brimstone raining down like the anti-gay promised? How come Sweden hasn't fallen apart with anarchy ruling the streets?

Canada (where I'm from) has had legal same-sex marriage since 2004 and Canada has done quite well for itself economically, socially, etc. Even in spite of an idiotic conservative Prime Minister and his cronies who keep embarrassing the country.

No, bigot, you're too late and too stupid.

Most of the industrialized West already has marriage equality with full rights.

You sound desperate. And sexually ill.

Yes, there are homophobes everywhere. What can be done about it other than counter their hatred with facts and displays of love?

Here's a little news for you. For all intents and purposes, a civil union IS marriage. It's only a matter of time before they change the label.

Actually you're wrong. The courts have already ruled that so-called "civil unions" are NOT marriage, and it does not confer the same legal rights and responsibilities as marriage. Which is why I am fundamentally opposed to so-called "civil unions".

Now some of you who favor this say it's a half-step that we should be happy to get and settle for. So i ask you this: Did Rosa Parks, a GREAT American, settle for sitting in the back of the bus ? After all, whether you sat in the front of the bus, or the back of the bus, the front and back seats of the bus both got to the next bus stop at the same time. Dis this GREAT American, Rosa Parks, settle for being treated AS A SECOND-CLASS citizen ???

Allow me to clarify. I am aware of the shortcomings of "civil unions" vs. unions with the label of marriage. What I was trying to suggest is that, legalities aside, a civil union is a bond between the two persons involved which is as deep and devoted as any marriage.

Don't misunderstand. I want gay people to have all the rights that I, in a "straight" marriage, get to have. It is a simple matter of fairness, which should not even be open to legal arguments, or to the vacuousness of bigotry.

Rosa Parks is one of my heroes.

You can love whomever you like. Just keep it behind closed doors. Nobody really cares who you play with or how; excepting the media.
