It’s so shit like this doesn’t happen to your family, your friends or your neighbours because no one deserves to have this happen… ever.
How appalling that a gay couple who had legal documents (wills, power of attorney etc) in place were separated at the time of their greatest need of each other, thrown in separate nursing homes and weren’t able to be together when one of them died. It is so inhumane, so wrong.
I’m sick of my workmates asking why I want gay marriage to be legal here in Australia when I should be happy with what I have got, which is barely no legal rights whatsoever just a few tax breaks & the government calls this crap reform. This is precisely why I want it.
I don’t give a shit what people call it – call it marriage, call it civil union call it anything you like, but what gay couples need is legal recognition of their partnership that can never be thrown out of a court of law because of what mood a judge is in.
It is our right. It isn’t a fucking privilege.
The Pope has taken crazy to a whole new level with his recent statements on gay marriage. The Pope has been quoted as saying:
Creatures, including humans, “can be protected or endangered”, the Pope, 82, told the Vatican diplomatic corps in a traditional January address focusing mainly on environmental issues.
“One such attack comes from laws or proposals which, in the name of fighting discrimination, strike at the biological basis of the difference between the sexes,” he said, citing “certain countries in Europe or North and South America”..
Really?? Allowing same-sex marriage to occur is going to kill off the human race? Are you kidding me?
It isn’t like us queers are going around having heterosexual sex and breeding until countries finally enter the 21st century and legally recognise our relationships. Allowing same-sex relationships to be legally recognised is not going to destroy the human race, but the more people who see the Bible and the Catholic Church as not reflecting the world they live in, the more likely they will be to turn away from the Church. This is what I think the Pope is really afraid of.
Count me in for bringing the downfall of this irrelevant institution.
