They can't win the argument because they have a shit reason - "gays are icky". So they invent bullshit and try to make the debate all about their bullshit.

I support the right of store owners who don't want to provide services to any particular group of people... as long as they have a big sign in their window with a list of the people they won't serve. That way I can avoid going into shops run by a-holes.

It's a just insufferable that we must endure this Hyde Park soapbox drone. A failure at the priesthood, journalism & the law, the American marines or a bellowing Sargent-Major from Police Academy is his sad life.

This is not about religion fools .this is about financial security and recognition for long term relationship. All people have the right. If this goes to poll we are a gutles bunch . I expect the house to say yes. But the coalition conservatives are a bunch of children .who only care about ther reputation. Christian infiltrated useless political party. Gods save us.no may the pagan gods get me away from the churches of hate
