GAY ISSUES

New Zealand has the become the 13th nation in the world to legalize same-sex marriage after their parliament approved a bill that will take effect in August. It was a joyous scene as the bill passed and the parliament broke into unexpected song. The country's MP Maurice Williamson was the undoubted star as he delivered a hilarious and wonderful speech just before the vote. Now the race is on for the position of 14th country to legalize gay marriage, will it be Colombia?

After previously stating that her father and Former President Ronald Reagan would support same-sex marriage, Patti Davis is now saying that her mother Nancy Reagan is also pro-gay rights. And two more deaths have been attributed to the recent outbreak of a deadly form of meningitis

National Republicans have cut ties with former South Carolina Congressman Mark Sanford and his new bid for Congress because his ex-wife caught him trespassing and you really can't bounce back from that. The apparent front-runner in Paraguay's presidential election is no fan of gays as he said he would shoot himself in the testicles if his son were to tell him that he was gay. Also have you ever wondered what would happen if someone had an anti-gay marriage rally and no one came?

VIDEOS OF THE DAY

If you are prone to vertigo you probably should steer clear of this video of a wingsuit dive into a tiny cave. Also Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert each praise the bravery the people of Boston have shown over the past couple of days.

  1. Well, the good news is that it's still pretty gosh-darn easy to buy an assault rifle and it's still all-but-impossible to get married in most States, if you're gay.


    So we can all rest easy knowing that no children this week will be senselessly murder by a drive-by lesbian wedding. We can go to the movies, knowing we're safe in our dark crowded cinemas knowing that there are going to be no men there armed with their husband's other arm. Cuz them married gays like to be all arm in arm and stuff. Which is dangerous.

    Yes, the children will be safe. No deaths this week from gay marriage. Because these gay marriages are just destroying the country at an appalling rate.
