The Gay White North

Canada's House of Commons votes to legalise same-sex marriage. Now, listening to the religious leaders here in America, I'm fully expecting the wrath of god to hit Canada in full-force, assuming their Senate approves the legislation. Will we be able to view the fireworks from our northern border states? Should they start setting up an asbestos wall of some sort to protect themselves?

The legislation applies to civic weddings at public places like city halls and courthouses. No religious groups will be forced to sanctify same-sex marriages if they don't want to.

There, see. It's like what I've been saying all along: The government should only concern itself with civil unions for whatever secular purposes it might serve, while marriage itself should be handled by churches for spiritual reasons. Then maybe everyone can shut the fuck up about it.
