I meant to post this yesterday but completely forgot. British Columbia has followed Ontario by allowing same sex marriages to be performed in the province. This is encouraging news in the human rights area but there are people determined to fight against this liberal ruling. I don’t have a news link but several religious groups have stated that they will fight this all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada if need be.
Why is it that many religious groups are so freaking hypocritical? Love thy neighbour, unless they are gay (then oppress them as much as you can). Why is it that a large percentage of the worlds problems are caused by religion? Do the Christians and Jews not remember that not so long ago (in the time scale of the universe) they were persecuted for their beliefs and practices? Now they feel the need to persecute another group of people because they feel morally superior to this group? Many days I think that the world would be better off if we were all Pagans or something like that. At least we’d respect each other and the environment a little more than we do now.
