GUEST,Steamin' Willie BS: Why Gays Should Not Marry, Simplified (134* d) RE: BS: Why Gays Should Not Marry, Simplified 07 Jan 11

The novelist Ian Fleming once stated (I don't know if it was in a James Bond book though) that gay men cannot whistle.

Whilst trying to work that one out, it occurred to me that there is an equally absurd outrageous comment doing the rounds,

Why gays should not marry.

I went to a civil partnership celebration a couple of years ago, (both grooms refused to call it a wedding till the law catches up with the law,) and had a bloody good time. Mothers crying, risqué best man speech, the full monty. As some of the congregation were bell ringers, they had arranged a quarter peel at the cathedral that afternoon. Sadly, they didn't tell the Dean the matter of the occasion. After all, the old bigot might not have allowed it, despite one of the grooms being a regular ringer there.

So sad, so wrong, so out of step with the rest of the world and as ever, so damned hypocritical.
