As I have said in the past, I don't give two hoots for gay marriage. When I was young and saw things in black and white, I believed that a man and woman only need get married if they were to have children, for the children's sake. Time and I have moved on and I no longer think this and I doubt society generally does. However, I do believe if gays or dykes want to get married, then why shouldn't they.
While I suppose in some ways I have benefited from the long term gay rights campaign, it will perhaps be to my disadvantage in my old age.
What has puzzled me, and others, including Dina, who was quite rightly suspicious, is why Prime Minister Gillard is against gay marriage? It goes against almost everything we know about her.
Perhaps the answer is in this clip from gay and lesbian newspaper, the Star Observer. Long have Australian politicians made deals with religious groups, internet censorship being a still ongoing one, so the explanation is quite feasible.
Could it be true? Did Julia Gillard really sell her moral compass for
power? Kevin Rudd allegedly spilled the beans to gay marriage advocates
Kerryn Phelps, Jackie Stricker and Geoff Thomas, that Gillard made a
deal with the Australian Christian Lobby and Joe De Bruyn that placed
our PM on the anti-same-sex marriage bandwagon.
