// mini rant time
You know... they argued about Gay Marriages again this last week in Canada... hell they even protested against it on Parliament Hill... idchits... They talk about how the term Marriage is a religious one according to a vast majority of interpretations and that it should be within the scope of "religion" to define it... or at the very least to "help define it". I've a hearty "fuck that" for every last person that thinks this way. If "married" was a religous term... then what's it doing on my tax return? GET A FREAKING GRIP PEOPLE... the gay marriage deal is a property rights and self respect issue. Take your religious dogma and cram it up yer squeeky tight little sphincters and let it out in church! The courts interpret laws set by government. The fact that our system of government embraces christian religious elements (like using the word God in the constitution) does not translate into the Church having any say in how the government does it's job... it's called Lip Service. So please... stop waisting my tax dollars arguing about this issue and get on with what you know will ultimately be the way things work. Do you honestly think that your son or daughter who, despite your best efforts, lives a life with a homosexual partner, is undeserving of the same rights as another person who lived their life with a heterosexual partner? Get... A... Freaking... Grip.
