Coalition For Equal Marriage

Posted 02-22-2012 at 01:29 PM by Wil

One for the UK residents who believe in equality.

I wondered how long it would be before something emerged to counter the horrendous Coalition For Marriage. At 28 thousand signatures, it's a depressing reminder of the hatred and discrimination that festers in society.

But now there's the brand new Coalition For Equal Marriage! Yay!

Shit. You're right.

HOW DO I TAKE MY SIGNATURE OFF

I guess I should read things before signing them.

My Chemistry teacher is opposed to marriage in general because he doesn't like how we've got two seperate institutions for hetrosexuals and homosexuals.

When he told me that secular hetrosexual marriage didn't exist here, I almost threw up.

EDIT: Also, Wil's blog header doesn't make sense anymore. And 'A Wil To Grind' isn't a thing.

I'm putting hearts on the Facebook walls of people whose names I see crop up on the petition.

Except for MeechMunchie. I'm worried he'd react badly, like that time I threatened to stalk him.

There is no direct mention of "homosexuals"/"gay ppl" on the petition, like they were afraid to use the word because it would adversely affect the signature number. The four "arguments" are incredibly dumb (just look at 'em, they're absolutely pointless, they never even tell why it is a good thing to sign)...

I've never met any homosexual person, but from what I see there, I'm getting a feel they are idiots. Not going to sign.

'Equal marriage' is not the same thing as 'Same-sex marriage'. Equal marriage is for everybody, not just those that fall in the man/woman false dichotomy.

The petition is a response that by the Coalition for Marriage. The arguments aren't standalone, they're pointing out how bad the C4M's points are. I think it would be beneficial if they explain why it would be good, but frankly if you're not already pro-equality there's little that a succinct petition can do to sway your opinion.

Um... I understand I'm missing some info about original C4M, could you link the original and/or describe what's so different between those two?

The original C4M is anti-equal-marriage. They want it to remain between a man and a woman.

If that makes you guys feel better, I think the arguments from http://c4m.org.uk/ are at least equally stupid as counterarguments from c4em...

I decided to bait my dad about gay marriage on the way to school today, hilarity ensued because he's a hard line Catholic. XD

All I had to do was tell him that gay marriage should be allowed and Churches are stupid for disliking gays.

Now then, are you gonna come here MA or do I have to come to you?
