Thread Name: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
Subject: RE: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
Sorry Don...you're right, that was a stupid joke....apologies.

But I am not trying to dodge anything, I keep getting asked the same questions and I think I am answering them adequately.

Howard and Ian were trying to distort the figures, so I quoted direct from CDC and HPA. I may not be well educated, but I am not stupid, I can spot games people play, a mile away.

Bill I have answered your question many times.
I am against legislation to bring forward homosexual marriage mainly on health grounds. I have advanced facts to back up my stance many times, surely I dont have to go through it all again.

I am also anti on the grounds of damage to the very important family structure......details above.
So in conclusion, if the hiv rates among MSM were to drop to anything approaching hetero levels, I would still be against the legislation.
I have stated this many times before.....why is it so important to you?

On "equality" the only issue the pros can bring forward, I notice that no one has addressed the position of people who wish to live as man and wife with a close relative.

There have been cases when these people have offered to be sterilised, so that there would be absolutely no health problems, yet they are denied all "rights" even civil rights insurance rights etc which are now available to homosexuals.
They have to live a secret life, always in fear of prosecution, yet the "liberals" look the other way.....I smell hypocrisy.
