last night conservative PM David Cameron has finally done something for which I respect him. the house of commons voted overwhelmingly (400 vs 175) to legalise gay marriage. of course, civil partnership has existed for a long time but now our gay and lesbian friends can also marry in church.
I call this a victory against the still existing minority of bigots. as a nice side-effect, it might just about cost him the next elections as 25% of voters of his own party threatened tp make their cross elsewhere.....
life is good sometimes....!

    Little bit longer for us to over come our biggots. Soon though..soon.

    That makes me so happy. When I think how far the UK has come in the horrific history of the gay population, I am ecstatic! I hope the spirits of the past can see this and know they did not die in vain.

    you mean people like Oscar WIlde?

    No, I mean tragic people long before Oscar Wilde. At least Oscar Wilde managed to get off with his life after surviving two years of hard labor. I'm talking about the ones that were disemboweled, hanged and burned at the stake.

    yes, those were indeed the dark ages...the Victorians weren't much better though. Oscar Wilde survived - a broken man.
    did you read 'de profundis'?

    No I haven't, but thank you for telling me. I will look for it on Amazon. I saw this movie just called "Wilde" and Jude Law played his lover Bozie." My God, that guy was beautiful in that movie.

    good luck to gay people. they have the right to be happy with theri choice of partner. if they are both unnatached consented adults then what the hell is the problem?

    it has sweet FA to do with 'another victory against bigotry', as is so naively and childishly suggested in this question. What it DOES have to do with, however, is the relentless drive by the homosexual/lesbian lobby to try to convince the rest of us of the 'normality' of their proclivites.
    This latest development where 'marriage' has now been effectively re-defined to encompass
    same sex as well as the centuries old heterosexual one, universally and throughout all cultures
    understood and accepted, is just another piece of 'Alice in Wonderland' type of legislation drawn up by a pathetic PC obssessed government in a desperate attempt to curry favour and win votes from the so called 'pink electorate'.In so doing, they may very well find out to their cost, that the relatively few extra votes they garner in this way will be inevitably out-weighed by the very much
    larger number they LOSE from the many, many people who they alienate by this Mickey Mouse
    legislation...

    gosh, you are talking out of your backside.

    it was legislated by a conservative government with a vast majority (404:175). in fact, 25% of Tory (that is conservative to you) voters said they would make their cross elsewhere if the Tories went ahead....they did anyhow. more guts than I gave them credit for.

    you really should get your facts straight before you post anything at all.

    oh, RAy, now really! your 'facts' are wishful thinking and I have just proven it to you. and all you can do is block....that humour bypass operation you had needs to be done again. LOL!

    If I am talking out of my 'backside' then that part of my anatomy has certainly a lot more sense and intelligence in it than that 'part' of you that we shall laughingly describe as a 'brain' !
    I am well aware of the 'facts'-- .-something that you are obviously in abysmal ignorance of-so i suggest you confine your own posts to YOUR nether regions
