a wonderful, positive message, perfect for this Christmas season of love, peace,
and good will to all (a message lost on groups and individuals who continue to
promote faith-based bigotry, to their detriment).
decision caused barely a ripple in today's news, compared to the 7 court decisions
that have provided breakthroughs elsewhere in Canada. The Dec.
9th decision from the Supreme Court of Canada has made it clear that the remaining
provinces and territories that still discriminate will be forced to change, either
by the courts or by Parliament (whichever comes first). This, perhaps, is the
biggest news of all: gay marriage is quickly becoming normal in Canada.
gays and lesbians gain acceptance, opponents of human rights are in sharp contrast
with their absurd and mean tactics and arguments. We can only hope that they are
spending millions of dollars and hours campaigning against marriage equality.
It's money and time, poorly spent, that won't be available to attack other issues,
like women's rights, stem cell research, etc.
just one more gift that the movement for gay marriage is giving to Canadian society.
