Centrepoint comes back to life with the Landmark Cafe

By 27 June 2012 109

landmark cafe

Last year we were concerned that City Walk’s Centrepoint build was increasingly vacant.

Well it seems to be coming back to life. The Landmark Cafe putting a big service frontage onto City Walk has some real potential.

I particularly like the way the interior plays with relics of bygone ages like penny farthing bicycles and The Canberra Times.

if marriage and same sex civil unions are the same, then why not call them all marriage?

Because of … because … because … children need a mother and a father …. um …. because …. the church and religion and stuff … um … stop being bigoted against me for being bigoted.

If the rights they confer or protect are the same, why are you still trying to upset people?

There is nothing wrong with thier gay people, they’re happy, not hurting anyone, who cares.

I just don’t belive in changing something just because some a minority group keeps whinging about it.

The word marriage would apply to homosexual couples already, if a majority of Australians agreed with such a change, but the fact of the matter is that it’s not something that most people care too much about. Yeah you’ve got your redneck brigade, but that doesn’t constitute the majority of Australians.

Children need positive male and female role models. They can be inside or outside the home. Otherwise what about all the widowers who raised children in single sex parented homes? Schools and community/sports groups and the friends of the parents provide this. Most parents regardless of gender try to ensure this. I have never ever met a gay person who didn’t have straight friends or family.

I think you will find the majority waqnts gay coupkles to have the exact same rights as hetero couples. Its on;y the vocal minority thats against it.

Interesting that you link to an article that systematically debunks the flowchart in question.

Evidented by the fact that gay marriage is recognised in Australia?

Eh, I googled the flowchart name and found the first site that showed it. My bad. Still doesn’t take away from the humour of the image.

So organised politics is in concordance with popular opinion now? Gosh, riot act will be quieter…

The majority of Australian voters *are* in favour of same-sex marriage (even ACL polling demonstrates this).

As for: “I just don’t belive in changing something just because some a minority group keeps whinging about it”. Then presumably you’re also against suffrage and racial equality?

No it isn’t, it’s simply reality.
Marriage is one thing. Homosexual coupling is another thing. There is no such thing as “equality” between two things that are different.

Not allowing homosexuals to marry is bigotry and segregation. That’s facts. It’s not debatable.

well that lasted long, the doors are shut and there has been a sign in the window for a little while now saying the business is for sale due to family circumstances.

And is not related to the fact that running a very mediocre and totally untrendy cafe in the middle of Civic is a terrible business idea?
