The Dallas Morning News coverage (AP):

2nd Canada court backs gay marriage

BC joins Ontario in recognizing unions; opponents may appeal


Associated Press

TORONTO – British Columbia became the second Canadian province to allow same-sex marriage under a court ruling Tuesday.

The decision by the province's Court of Appeal further increased pressure on the Canadian government to follow through with plans to rewrite federal law that defines marriage as between man and woman.

An Ontario court issued a similar ruling last month, leading to more than 250 same-sex couples obtaining licenses to marry in Toronto.

British Columbia's Appeal Court earlier ruled in favor of same-sex marriages and gave the federal government a year to draft a new law redefining marriage. Gay rights groups then asked the court to reconsider the one-year delay after the Ontario ruling.

In its decision Tuesday, the three-member B.C. Appeal Court panel said it was "apparent that any further delay in implementing the remedies will result in an unequal application of the law between Ontario and British Columbia."

Religious and family groups opposed to same-sex marriage said they will ask Canada's Supreme Court to allow them to appeal the Ontario court ruling that legalized gay and lesbian weddings.

Angered by the government's plan to let the Ontario ruling stand and instead propose a new law permitting same-sex marriage, the groups said they would try to intervene.

"The federal government has abdicated its leadership role," said Derek Rogusky of Focus on the Family, a conservative lobby group. "This matter has far-reaching consequences nationwide, and the nation's highest court should be permitted to consider the fundamental issues."

Focus on the Family was joined by the Interfaith Coalition on Marriage, a collection of Roman Catholic, evangelical Protestant and Islamic organizations, in planning to seek intervener status in the case.

Prime Minister Jean Chretien has said his government is drafting a law that would legalize same-sex marriage while allowing churches to decide what ceremonies they sanction.

Aw Shucks....I'm all choked up!

I bet the divorce lawyers are jumping up and down with glee. A brand new source of revenue has just opened up for them.

The gay community may end up deciding this isn't so great after all. Now they will have to deal with getting "taken to the cleaners" when they get divorced and it may not feel so liberating when they are making alimony payments to all of their ex's.

Homosexuality is deviant sexual behavior and a mental illness.

Homosexuals: 1) subject their body parts to uses nature did not intend, such activities often presenting immediate risk to the participants; 2) are prone to greater suicide, depression and other mental disorders and deficiencies than the heterosexual population at large; 3) are prone to far greater sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS, than the (normal) heterosexual population; 4) molest young people (pedophilia) at a far greater rate than heterosexuals; 5) engage in degrading sexual promiscuity, oftentimes engaging in risky sex with many partners during the same event; 6) are engaged in aggressive and widespread efforts to indoctrinate our children by introducing the homosexual lifestyle using public schools as the primary indoctrination “vehicle” and likewise, through the movie/music/TV industry, with the dual goals of gaining school-age acceptance of homosexuality and encouraging sexual activity among children, especially same-sex experimentation; 7) view most everything through a mindset heavily biased in favor of the homosexual lifestyle and culture, which renders them mostly useless when asked to opine on matters that normal heterosexuals better resolve.

The mental deficiencies described herein applying to homosexuals shall not be confused with the deficiencies associated with the left wing democrat/socialist/marxist/ feminist/environmentalist minds, etc., which have their own distinct set of mental disorders.

This doesn't even touch on what the Bible has to say about homosexuality.
