GAYS VOTING AGAINST MARRIAGE
DNA’s website reported on Ben Rogers and Mark Poidevin, a gay couple who say they’ll vote against marriage equality. Our website readers responded…
Obviously these two grew up after homosexuality was legalised in Australia. They have never lived in a world where their sexuality is illegal and punishable. Maybe a trip to one of the 10 countries in the world were the punishment is death would wake them from their selfishness.
Homosexuality was legalised without a plebiscite because it was the right thing to do. Equality is not about what you want, it’s about giving everyone the same rights and privileges. – Trevor K (from DNA website)
The homophobes, including the gay couple, are doing the exact same thing they did in the US. They screamed it was those who were for equality who were the bullies because we wouldn’t let them practice their religion. No one was stopping that except in cases where they used their religion as justification to discriminate. When they knew they couldn’t win by using truth, they changed tactics and portrayed themselves as victims.
If we had legal gay marriage, it would not affect this gay couple [Ben and Mark] one bit. It would only affect those who wanted to marry. Thus, they’ve earned the homophobic label justly. They want everyone to think as they do and that’s to vote for inequality. They just can’t wrap their heads around that they are homophobes.
