Jimmy C BS: Canada Legalizes Same Sex Marriage (142* d) RE: BS: Canada Legalizes Same Sex Marriage 06 Jul 05

A bigot is one who would deny rights to other people. I do not want to deny gays the right to form a union. I just want them to call it something else. It will never be considered a marriage to the majority of canadians, and that will not change. It could quite easily be referred to as a Civic Union - A Registered union - A same gender union or whatever (with all rights assured). Two men in a relationship is not the same as a man and a woman in a relationship and never will be.

In the N. Ireland article above, even the gays recognise that their relationships are different from heterosexual relationships and state that

"Same gender couples are not looking for heterosexual marriages, it's something different. We want our relationships recognised by law to protect us and give us the rights as a couple."
