Win some, lose some

Federal MP Pat O’Brien quit the Liberals and has decided to sit as an independent because he’s opposed to the Liberal bill to allow same-sex marriage.

With that view, Mr. O’Brien, why not just leap all the way to the Conservatives, where you can spend lots of time and energy opposing the rights of the gay minority in Canada to your heart’s content? After all, the Tories lost Belinda Stronach to the Libs, it could be considered a fair exchange.

There’s no such thing as same-sex marriage. Call it a civil union or make up a new term, but not marriage. That’s between a husband and wife.

Or, better yet, put it to a referendum.

Put WHAT to a referendum? This queer- marriage kafuffle is so far down the list of ‘Things-that-matter’ that the only reason Martin is watering that particular flower is for pure political hell raising. It keeps the media off his very exposed unethical ass.

Hey, the ethical thing would be to put it on the ballot.
That’s why it’s NOT on the ballot.
