Gay Marriage Map

Since 1998 there have been 34 US legislative ballots on same-sex marriage. 33/34 the US legislatures have voted NO!  In Sept 2012 Australia voted twice, both times NO. So when does democracy get respected Rainbow nation? or do you keep nagging till you get what you want?

About coNZervative

A blog about politics, life, culture, literature, music and thought from Christchurch, New Zealand [NZ] (the home of 10,000 earthquakes since 4 Sept. 2010) built because of the bullying and cajoling of Liberal opinion-makers (journalism and Hollywood) against conservative-minded people who are as entitled to opinion and a perspective as anyone; and because Conservativism has served the world well. John Stringer is a New Zealander (Christchurch) in his 50s married to an American from Taco Bell; they have 5 adult children in 3 diff. countries. John is an ex-Anglican pastor, a teacher, published author (NZ), novelist (USA) and cartoonist (Aust, NZ), and has spent the last 25 years in NZ politics with the National party (he was a parliamentary candidate in 1999). There was a stint in London working for the British Conservative party as well, where he did media minding and campaign work with several Brit cabinet ministers, including Baroness Thatcher, Baroness Blatch, Michael Howard, Tom King, among others. He has an MA (classical studies, Victoria); is a graduate of the New York Film Academy; and has various awards for writing. His passions include British bulldogs, fly fishing, and history (Ancient and WWII). Winston Churchill was mainly a “Conservative” but also a “Liberal” MP between 1900-1964. A Member of Parliament for 64 years, he contested 21 parliamentary elections (for Oldham, Manchester North West, Dundee, and Epping/Woodford). Throughout his career Churchill stood for liberty. He believed in open debate and freedom of speech, and opposed any system or ideology that tried to dictate the way one should think. Churchill felt deeply that disagreements within the democratic system should not degenerate into personal animosities. RIDER: This site is not connected to nzconservative, a Catholic site, or NZ Conservative Party, although from time-to-time I share some of the views espoused by both groups and other sites I follow, as published; I am an independent thinker and blogger.

    Moronic in that it leaves off civil unions completely. Currently 1 in 7 Americans live in states with marriage equality. As for the states with votes against it, most of them did some years ago, well before their was a seismic shift in public opinion polls. Whether they could duplicate that record today is very dubious. But then, you really aren’t interested in the facts, are you?

    Just like all those annoying civil rights demonstrations. Talk about a scratched record. No respect for democracy those naggers.

  3. Judge Holden says:

    Yeah, those gayers should just shut up, and Rosa Parks should have just gone and sat where she was told. How dare she nag the democratic people of Alabama like that?
