And proof that this isn't over the top, someone posted the comment half an hour ago:"Otherwise what's next? Marry your brother or sister? Or marry your dog? There is a list of No Nos. So let's not start elliminating the list of No Nos -- by permitting two men to marry and then adopt babies. If we remove that taboo -- the next taboo on the list to be removed will be incest -- for sure."http://www.trademe.co.nz/Community/MessageBoard/Messages.aspx?id=1082579&topic=7
Don't know about civilised society collapsing, but after the Icelandic economic collapse they elected their first lesbian prime minister and an anarchist actor-comedian to be the mayor of Reykjavik. If the same thing occurred in NZ we might be able to enjoy a massive outbreak of conniptions amongst the sort of people who get het up about This Sort Of Thing. So it's a win-win!
Hey, something we could yet lead the world in.Patsy
You can marry your gerbil in Belgium.
All I can say is that the gay activists that want change are damned lucky they have the rabid fundamentalists to oppose them, because if they didn't, their argument would fall over as illogical nonsense.A heterosexual tradition can no longer exist if it includes homosexuals, this isn't about rights, it is about compelling to "hand it over".There is no difference between rabid Christian activists and rabid gay activists, yet we celebrate the latter as progressives.Cultural nihilists more like.
Rabid Christian activists are gay?Who knew?I've always believed rabid described dogs and bats.Traditions can be modified, Shunda and are adapted to fit new situations. Sitting around the burning yule log at Christmas time just doesn't suit, here in New Zealand and there's just no market for dunking stools anymore.
