Canada legalized gay marriage ten years ago -- Here's what to expect next, America

Brian LilleyArchive

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage. But the truth is, this fight was lost a while ago.

In Canada, same sex marriage was legalized a decade ago, and that ushered in changes to Canadian society, large and small.

Laws will have to be re-written, for one thing; words like "husband" and "wife" have to be removed, along with the phrase "natural parent."

But there's much more...

READ Brian Lilley's book CBC Exposed -- it's been called "the political book of the year.”

The High River gun grab violated every Canadian's civil liberties, and must never be repeated.

Wow, that’s really awesome, Robert, thanks.
commented 2015-07-02 21:53:25 -0400
Thanks, Robert, yes, I see.

You know Terry 25 years ago gays were pretty open and you’d be lucky to hear of 1 in 10 considering gay marriage as even a possibility are we to assume that for hundreds of years people held an opinion and now suddenly people who still hold are bigots with “interesting” opinions? The lunacy of the left knows no bounds. Terry I’ll try in the future to despite my lack of discrimination against any real individual person work harder at actual bigotry to help your rash hate fit the narrative you’ve chosen.
commented 2015-07-02 14:14:14 -0400
Thank you for your interesting perspective, Robert.
commented 2015-07-02 12:53:12 -0400
As I suspected Terry like all childish libs you prefer a feeling to a thought, happy endings and fairy tales, politics and law are like children’s books for you, everybody is happy and goes home with a smile and unintended consequences don’t exist. Awwww, there there we all feel better now gays can have a wedding reception and snap lots of photos, all is now right with the world. What a load of shit you people believe.
commented 2015-07-02 07:18:36 -0400
There, see? That’s much better. You actually CAN express a stupid idea in a single paragraph, without making me waste all that time wading through the drivel!
commented 2015-07-02 00:57:33 -0400
That’s fine Terry why prime yourself with my actual opinion before you comment on it, it’s much easier to just throw insults and hate based on how you feel about how I feel. I’ll be sure to make sure in the future I don’t worry about getting facts on things I comment on and just hurl invective. Here’s my first try all gay men have AIDS and they spread it by thinking lol.
commented 2015-07-01 21:30:59 -0400
Actually, Robert, I didn’t read your whole post. Too much ranting. Sorry.
commented 2015-07-01 21:20:57 -0400
Jimmy, I’m willing to fight for MY country are you? I doubt it ya bedwetter.
commented 2015-07-01 20:04:25 -0400
Jimmy, I don’t know, either you’re smoking something or you’re in dire need of some anger management, you’re going to pop a gasket. What’s your BP?

Hey Jimmy what’s the majority of Portuguese have to say about the colonial wars they were still fighting in the 70’s? Do the majority of Canadians of Portuguese descent know that red and green rag was the symbol of tyranny and fascism to so many Africans just a few decades ago? Maybe we should outlaw that hate banner being flown in Ontario because the majority of Ontarians are against colonialism so please don’t put one on the hood of your car.
commented 2015-07-01 18:11:59 -0400
Terry you’re funny, did you not read the parts where I said I wasn’t christian and I held humanist beliefs? Or the part where I said I don’t object to gays leading their lifestyle? My objections are with nuts like you who think contrary to the 100’s of years of case law defining marriage you can just alter it to create a happy ending for people who had the right to marry in the same way as all did per its definition. How about the insanity that we need to “teach” children, or “celebrate” gays, where the the fuck did these things become the norm. Should we teach children some people like to screw cars or cherry pies as well? How about we teach them gay men like to prowl restrooms with holes cut in the wall and blow other men, it’s as true as any of the shit you want taught. Or should we just provide this sanitized version where gays don’t have quadruple the rate of STDS, double and half the rate of suicide, triple the rate of pedophilia, surely we should provide truth shouldn’t we?

You stay there with Wynne, Jimmy. But don’t expect any transfer payments when YOUR country is bankrupt
commented 2015-07-01 15:32:44 -0400
Sounds good Peter. I think it’s doable especially if Mulcair gets in I’m pretty sure we could round up 6 million of our closest friends and make it happen
commented 2015-07-01 15:26:26 -0400

Well since the majority of Canadians feel as I do – get the fuck out of OUR country. Go live in Texas, where many there share your archaic views.
commented 2015-07-01 15:08:55 -0400
Kelvin. How does British-Albertewan sound. Brad Wall as PM. We need Stephen Harper as well for social and military defence
commented 2015-07-01 14:08:33 -0400
I second that. Bye-bye Dr. Jimmy and your socialist comrades. Sorry butthead I can’t lower myself enough to entertain your comments
commented 2015-07-01 14:00:09 -0400
Here’s something batshit crazy for ya. I can’t wait for the west to separate. all though I have been against tearing this country up in the past, I’ve served this nation in the military and plead an oath to queen and country. But if Jimmy talks for the nation I can no longer abide by that and I find myself looking for greener pastures like a liberal free west. Which mean all you bums and creeps get the hell out my country. The divide is getting wider folks according to dr jimmy, we don’t need a lot of room so we will take back Alberta and join with Saskatchewan and live happily ever after without the likes of the jimmmys

The Rebel doesn’t remotely speak for the majority of Canadians. That’s why no one gives a shit about this place beyond a very select few of batshit crazy conservatives for the most part. Everything that I have said on The Rebel has been pretty much the position of the majority of Canadians – which has been repeatedly backed up in various polls and statistics.

Even The Toronto Sun, which has a connection to The Rebel – had to tell PEOPLE LIKE YOU to shut the fuck up, because you are making normal conservatives look bad. Why do you think that is?

Peter Babich: I understand that perspective. That’s why I don’t get mad at Jehovah’s witnesses or proselytizing Mormons – they believe they have a message of salvation and redemption, and they want to share it with me. I can’t resent that. But I have no patience for Christians without humility and without compassion who use their faith as a platform from which to assert their own moral superiority and the inherent evil of those who disagree with them, in huge, sweeping, statements like those voiced by Robert. Sorry, I don’t the voice of Christ in all that yelling.
commented 2015-07-01 10:34:16 -0400
Peter, the funny part is liberals hate christianity for its adherents relying on faith and try to make it seem as if they pose a danger because of it, meanwhile the dogma of political correctness relies on faith that requires you to ignore every bit of extant data regarding things like poverty and crime.As a person that considers himself a humanist rooted in science I occasionally wonder how Christians ignore science for their faith, but I certainly admire the morals that the new testament teaches and view pious christians as zero threat to our western values, the same can’t be said for secular humanists on the left, I don’t ever recall a christian advocating that people be forced to believe like this moron Jimmy said, nor do I ever recall a christian claiming because I don’t agree with them on faith that I was “christianphobe” lol. Only the blind faith of the PC crowd could take an opposition to gay marriage that is rooted in defence of stare decisis regarding marriage and suddenly act like you are advocating for stoning gays even though you’ve said a thousand times they should be free to lead their lives as they choose,It’s just that you feel, as with straights that their sex choices should not be flung in your face in public, but kept in their private space.
It’s obvious the faith of the left doesn’t have room for the concept of live and let and live believes forced adulation and reeducation are the best way to deal with differing opinions. Reasoned discussion is impossible and hypocrisy is perpetually on display with these imbeciles, buzzwords abound homophobe,racist, bigot and fascist. This is the same group that somehow sees a thug strong arm rob a shopkeep, charge a cop, and go for his gun and end up dead as symbol of institutional racism yet they watch hundreds of beatings of whites on streets by blacks on youtube and blame poverty. The lack of reality and the fairy tales they believe is astounding, yet they obsess on group who has a strong faith in Jesus and solid moral center. They have the balls to attack Christians, but not muslims for their faith it’s comical. You needn’t look further than their opinions on the Jews, when it was vogue to see the jews as victims of the “white man” they were all about screaming anti-semitism fast forward a few years now they view jews as the “white oppressor” of muslims and want to extinguish Israel. It doesn’t matter that 70 years ago Jews were really killed for their faith by the millions to these fools, now it’s about supporting the forces of anti-western Islam that the Jews fight with extreme caution to not kill innocents and they act like the Palestinians are the victims of a genocide. These lefties are all morons.

Terry rudden. While some Christians live by their faith it is admirable, but who will speak on Christ’s behalf of not us. Didn’t he command us to baptize all nations? How to you expect to achieve this if you don’t spread his gospel? I don’t presume to be holy, I only wish others can pick up and take forward the wisdom passed to us
commented 2015-07-01 01:17:13 -0400
Hey Jaco the irony I do find in you using your belief that a majority thinks something as affirmation of its correctness, meanwhile a small minority are gay so by your convoluted logic they must be wrong. Now pardon me while I laugh at your greasy ass digging out a basement or something.
commented 2015-07-01 01:10:07 -0400
Wow you simpleton Jimmy, do you run around with that red and green rag of your ancestral homeland that was fighting to enslave Africans just 40 years ago? Or better yet does coming from a fascist dictatorship actually make you think you can speak for everybody? I love that you believe I should hold my personal views based on the geography I occupy. Why not pack your bags and return to that hellhole that was the cause of the African slave trade rather than preach to people who support tradition. I love that you say you don’t believe in fairy tales like those that identify as Christian (which I do not), but you do believe in the fairy tale that degenerates should be celebrated, because that’s what pride celebrates the most outlandish and depraved of the gay community, not that small minority that just want to live their lives free of other gays and twisted liberals exposing them to the world. Leave it be you savage imbecile, now pardon me while I wipe my ass with that rag you semi-civilized types fly.

Jimmy. If you are being contested by the majority on this site, what makes you think you have the support of the majority of Canadians?
commented 2015-06-30 23:25:59 -0400
You’re not satan. You’re nothing
commented 2015-06-30 21:57:20 -0400
No Peter Babich – the things I say have the support of the majority of Canadians and Americans for that matter. YOU are the wrong side of history, so yes – I do speak for the majority.

Sorry I don’t believe in fairy tales about a man that lives in the sky.

You don’t believe I am from Canada – where gay marriage was legal 10 years ago and we support diversity here. LOL. OK. Yes you are right – I am Satan.
