From article:

"The country’s MPs have voted to re-ban same-sex marriage, just six months after it was legalised. US soldier who defected to North Korea in 1965 dead at 77 Under the proposed new bill, same-sex couples won’t be able to marry, but will instead enter into a ‘domestic partnership’. Speaking in favour of the bill, backbencher Lawrence Scott told the Bermuda Assembly: ‘As it stands now, they [LGBT couples] can have the name “marriage” but without the benefits.

Always be careful with copy-pasting.

Why should they get their shit together?Because they may not support the same views as you?Everyone is not and the same sex wagon,if you can't respect that oh well.

Just wanted to say I find it absolutely hilarious that your 666th post was one defending homophobia, bigotry, and goes against basic human decency to treat everyone equal.

Fantastic timing.

You find my 666th post defending someone or people with a different opinion to you and others,fantastic? Thanks.

Human rights aren't an opinion.

From the article it doesn't sound that it really got taken away. They lost the term "marriage" but won the associated rights and benefits with it. Sounds like a net win to me.

Should probably adjusted in the title as they're not revoked but rather renamed.

It's still an obvious distinction and discrimination towards them.

It is, but that doesn't make the title in any way correct. Also, still a net win. The step to "actual marriage" is now closer than ever.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
