It’s Quite Possible That the Conservative Party of Canada May Never Give it the Fuck Up

Cover of this morning's Globe and Mail

I’ve been warning y’all about this for months and now it looks like it’s finally coming to fruition. Rotting, festering fruition.

Read it and weep. When will it be strenuously argued that “freedom of religion” explicitly contains the idea “freedom from religion”? In the meantime, contact your Member of Parliament and scream until you can scream no more that you will not allow Canada to be remolded by pig-ignorant bigots masquerading as religious-rights advocates.

And if you think that this’ll get defeated, once and for all, and the bigots will finally shut the fuck up about it, think again.

    I agree with Brenda Cossman that it’s political posturing – the religious right is pressuring the Tories to do something and this is all they can think of. I totally discredit the person who quotes a “G@M” poll about Canadians disapproving of same-sex marriage – what the hell is “G@M”? Anybody can publish a poll that skews an opinion to one side or another. The poll thing is a non-starter, especially since we’re talking about legal, constitutionally defined rights. Yeah, it’s a story to watch but these people don’t have a hope. That’s my opinion.

    I can only assume that the person citing a “G@M” poll — I’m guessing they meant “Globe and Mail”? — is as meticulous in their reading of poll results as they are in naming their source. I agree, though, Ian. It’s gonna get defeated. But will they stop yammering that granting equal rights to one group somehow impinges on the rights of any other? Never.

    Update: I’m told that the “G@M” poll in question was an online poll. Now that you’ve picked yourself up off the floor and wiped away the tears of laughter (or are they?), you can go about your day with the knowledge that the poll is as significant as an Entertainment Tonight poll on whether Paris Hilton is hot or not.
