Six years of gay marriage and Canada hasn't crumbled

There are 46 comments on the www.leaderpost.com story from Jul 13, 2011, titled Six years of gay marriage and Canada hasn't crumbled. In it, www.leaderpost.com reports that:

In the run-up to Bill C-38 being passed, the naysayers darkly predicted the seismic crumbling of Canadian society as we know it; they said the "gay agenda" would undermine heterosexual marriage and families.

They predicted that in this new anything-goes Canada which would be created if Paul Martin's government sanctioned gay marriage, people would be marrying their cats, pedophiles would be marrying children, priests would be forced against their religious beliefs to officiate at gay marriages, and on and on. Each imagined scenario was more dire and ridiculous than the last.

Great article. They've found the same facts in the American states that have allowed marriage equality for same sex couples. Do you think that the Christian fundamentalists are lying?

The Canadian experience again proves that homosexual 'marriage' is a cruel lie with no real basis in homosexual life. No significant percent of the population has 'married' in ANY country that allows the concocted oxymoron.

Yes, they always do. Lies are synonomous with Christianity, oh, and republicans.

Oh, there the Pekin troll goes again with the same debunked nonsense. He never tells us what would be "significant," although each and every marriage is significant to the spouses.

Along those lines, I read an analysis of the states that currenly allow same-sex marriages, and they found that HALF of same-sex couples had chosen to marry. And that in just a few years.

Last time I checked, HALF was significant. As in HALF of heterosexual marriages fail.

I was wondering when people would realize this but I thought same-sex marriage has been around in Canada closer to a decade than 6 years.

It should be humorous when gay divorces occur in droves and they demand alimony and child support and have to split half their pensions. Rights come with responsibilities people. Young people, go to law school - there is a huge job market in family law. Imagine working for a lifetime and then jim and bob get 'married' and then they have to share their pension rights upon divorce. Marriage is really for having and raising children to prevent illegitimacy. Also, some children of gays may sue them for the embarassment of having gay parents. Children have sued their parents for university tuition.

I am sure that half of gay marriages will divorce and I bet that some gays will use the defense in court that their's was not a real marriage thus they don't have to pay alimony, split 'marital' property, pay child support, etc. Lawyers will have an interesting time. Same-sex room mates will have to have a lease and a lawyer signed document stating that they are not lovers but only sharing the rent for economics. Tell your young adult children to be careful lest a former room mate try to sue them for alimony, spousal support etc. although they were only college room mates.

Catholic, you're a horses A$$. Why don't I hear you railing against the 50%+ divorce rate among straight couples? Why don't I hear you railing against all the illegitimet children out there from straight pairings.

I think your children should sue you for being an idiot parent.

Actually I hope that you never get to breed.

What's you're issue? Concerned that gay marriage will all-too-quickly resemble str8 marriage?

Now, let me count how many Catholics I know who are divorced...

Again with your tired tirade about numbers and percentages.

I have 14 children - all fathered by different men. I collect alimoney from all of them... I use the child support $ for my own shopping since I am a Diva. All my ex--husbands are my servants. Diva rules. All my children will be going to law school to see how much we can sue society for. Of course I have rights and no responsibilities since I live in the evil age.

Do you find it "humorous" when straight couples get divorced? I don't. How odd that you would find any couple divoring "humorous". Don't you think?

We know that, but thanks for the reminder.

A job market created ENTIRELY by straight couples and their 50+% inability to remain legally married to each other.

Yeah. Imagine. Straight couples do it every day. Your point?

How's that workin' out for you? With the highest rate of children born to unmarried (heterosexual!) parents in the history of the world??? Tell us, how's that "legitimacy" thing workin' out for you??
Catholic wrote:

They may also flap their arms and fly like birds. That's about as likely.
Catholic wrote:

That is SUCH a terrific argument to support your point!! We should repeal Canada's marriage equality legislation so that children can no longer sue their parents for university tuition. You're brilliant!

Look, poodle. You're in Canada, right? Any of these delusional fantasies of your show ANY signs of actually happening? Or are you just free-associating for your own amusement?

HIV/AIDS rate up sharply in Canada.

One major city alone:

http://www.actup.org/forum/content/canada-new...

Any promotion of homosexuality ups the health risk for all of nation, especially through blood transfusions whether through controlled transfer or not and through human contact between those who are infected with those not infected, many of whom don't even know they are infected.
