Parliament Passes Gay Marriage Bill

I was heartened on Tuesday to see that Parliament passed the Gay Marriage bill – and by a large majority. 400 MPs voted in favour of the Bill and 175 voted against. Happily, both my own MP (a Lib Dem) and the neighbouring MP (a Tory) voted ‘Yea’.

I know there are some issues with the legislation but overall, it’s overdue. It follows the opionions of the majority of Britons. I firmly believe that in 50 years the gay rights movement will be looked on in the same way as we now look at the civil rights movement – as in “Well of course they should have the same rights. The idea that they shouldn’t is utterly absurd and without any justification whatsoever. How could they possibly justify that?”

I am yet to hear an argument against gay marriage which I consider in any way legitimate.

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.
