The sunny side of Marriage Equality, the spiteful ignorant nutballs it upsets

By johnboy - 23 October 2013 49

While I have some serious reservations about using gay and lesbian couples in kamikaze waves against the Abbott Government there is a plus side to yesterday’s love in at the Legislative Assembly.

Staggeringly ignorant Queenslanders really don’t like it:

Those still with their panties in a bunch over it should give a great deal of thought to the company they’re keeping.

And thanks to Bigfeet for the reminder below:

I love leftists and their arguing logic. “Evil, hateful, homophobes, cavemen, ignorant, spiteful – why can’t these revolting bigots stop being so hateful and intolerant of other people’s beliefs?”

I hope we can see a similar post about the sunny side of the high court overturning the legislation and the folks it upsets (and resultant bile).

Why go all the way to QLD, when we have our own Mr Gillespie right here?

This comment really is the pick of the bunch:

“This is very bad – A very sad day for Australia indeed!

As I have always said – Get rid of the queer sexually disoriented white women in this country (like Abbott’s f*cking sister) and get some decent Asian women down here and breed these queer retards out!”

SO much magic going on there.

I wonder if that was my brother……he lives in QLD & is married to a Filipino somewhere between 20 & 30 years his junior (we really dont know how old she is) and has this attitude.

There is so much wrong with the arrangement (its really not a marriage) that I dont know where to start.

What we really need here in the Sodom and Gomorrah of the South is some bi-curious televangelists, such as:

perhaps the Deep North has a few spares tucked away that they can send in our direction.

I am suspicious of the wording of Joe’s spray – looks deliberately dumbed-down to me. Whatever the case, there’s a reasonable chance that he, or his father, have been the victim of pedo-priests, so maybe there’s some context and extenuating circumstances to his verbal assault.

I’m sure they’re perfectly comfortable in such company.

The issue is status anxiety.

If you extend status you diminish it (infinitessimally) but these trolls have very little going on in their lives to be proud of.

Perhaps if they spent less time worrying about what someone else does and concentrate on their own crappy lives, they could probably improve them. Maybe even get a hobby that stops them from getting the sweats over what someone might be doing.

Don’t laugh the ACT is full of twisted creepy public servants who are sexually twisted. The ACT should be disbanded and broken up between Victoria and NSW and )Parliament House moved to Sydney which should be the Capital of Australia…Quote from Paul Keating.)

I wonder whether his opinion will change when he finds out that NSW Parliament is planning on introducing a marriage equality Bill in the near future.

I really don’t understand the resistance to it.

If some gay people get married it dosen’t hurt me so why should I care what they do?

I believe we should be able to do whatever we want as long as it dosen’t negatively effect others.

If they want the peice of paper (as do hetro couples) to live as they are living anyway who am I to stop them or even care, that is other than caring that another human is not getting treated equally in whatever area the discrimination is occuring.

Something needs to be done about global population control, so the more gays the better.

I’d rather move to Tassie. Much nicer….

Wow. There are some seriously backwards, hateful and scary comments on that thread.

Live and let live, people. My wife doesn’t agree with gay marriage due to her religious upbringing and beliefs (I don’t have any problem with it myself and would advocate for it if necessary), but she certainly doesn’t deny their life choice and right to be safe and happy (as much as anyone can be, anyway) and supports their right to equality – just not the use of the term marriage.

Hateful bigots like those posting on that thread are also likely to have “F**k off we’re full” stickers on their utes too.

I’m ashamed of Australia’s rednecks.

I’m surprised a queenslander wrote that. They probably got help from someone from another state.

I honestly don’t know why people just have to get up in the business of others. Gay marriage doesn’t cause any harm, you don’t have gay people busting down doors and forcing you to watch them consummate the marriage. Where is the direct personal harm? There is none.

Gay marriage has already happened in many other countries around the world, how come our society in Australia hasn’t fallen to bits? Are we protected by some mysterious no-homo international barrier that protects us from overseas gay marriage? How does someone getting married in the ACT affect someone living in the QLD or WA any more than it does for someone married to the same sex in Auckland or San Francisco?
