Isz, there is way to much BS and jockeying from both sides.
I find it bizarre that the UN would "rebuke" Australia for not allowing same sex divorce as it is a human rights issue. This is the same UN that does not recognize SSM as a human rights issue. WTF?
Then there is the draft marriage amendments (attorney generals) that I find disturbing;
2 Paragraph 23B(2)(b) 7 Omit “a brother and a sister”, substitute “2 siblings”. WTF?
I tried to find a balanced view of the below video (stating on a sign you will burn in hell is just plain stupid, not abuse) where the "NO's" were abusing and throwing **** at the "YES" campaigners. Sadly, I couldn't find anything. All the gay community is doing is segregating itself further from society. There were probably a lot of people who would have said yes but continued outbursts like the above have pushed them to no. The Government should never have put them in this position and unfortunately, I suspect this is a small minority of the gay community. Being petulant/belligerent in public is just plain stupid.
My tolerance/respect for SSM is wearing very thin but SSM deserves legal recognition.
Back to my post topic; Macklemore stated this morning (on the news), that this was a "great platform to recognize SSM". His presence is political, pure and simple. The money would definitely better spent elsewhere.
