    O’Brien: A number of aspects of the new law are profoundly disturbing.
    Fron WIKI: An Act to amend the Criminal Code (hate propaganda), popularly known as Bill C-250, its title during the second and third sessions of the 37th Canadian parliament, was a Canadian Private Member's Bill that amended the Criminal Code of Canada to add penalties for publicly inciting hatred against or encouraging the genocide of people on the basis of sexual orientation and added a defence for the expression of good-faith opinions based on religious texts.
    Prior to this amendment, the Criminal Code prohibited the promotion of genocide and the public incitement of hatred against groups identifiable by colour, race, religion, and ethnic origin; C-250 expanded coverage of these existing provisions to include groups identifiable on the basis of sexual orientation. The bill also expanded one of the defences available to persons charged with the incitement of hatred, allowing for the expression of good-faith opinions based on religious texts, in addition to the preexisting defence allowing the good-faith expression of opinions on religious subjects.

    Why are you misrepresenting the truth?

    Neither are homosexuals. There is nothing speacial about marrying the person you love, the person you're attracted to. It is the same rights hetrosexuals have. Nothing special about it at all.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Yeah... let them have the special privileges a man and a woman have.

    Also really happy about this : Poll: Support of gay marriage law high in NY – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    Most people in my state, even the elderly, support same sex marriage here in NY.

    It's just a matter of time. it will be accepted across the country. It's just a matter of when and not if.

    If a minister does this, he or she should step down. Its against God always. Like the catholics who rape boys. Its mostly a pedophile club and they usually do nothing for God. I think the catholics should disband.
