The issue is with regards to who the marriage partner may be and not the individual themselves, thus not a Charter issue.

The mere fact than an individual does not want to abide by the law and/or wishes to push the boundaries of the Canadian social structure to suit their own personal needs, does not make that person an advocate of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, it simply makes them a Liberal.

The biggest lie thus far from this Liberal government is not the sponsorship scandal or the gun registry boondoggle, it is the fact they are brainwashing Canadians to believe the issue of same- sex marriage is a Charter issue.

Nowhere in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms does it refer to the rights of couples.

The Charter is there to protect an individual person’s rights and freedoms so that they are treated the same as the next person.

Same-sex marriage is not a “constitutional” issue, nor is it a human rights issue.

The Charter contains no substance to either support it or deny it.

For the Charter to come into play, there must be a case of discrimination with regards to who (or what individual) is permitted to marry.

ANY PERSON CAN MARRY

Any person is permitted to marry. It doesn’t matter whether they are black or white, handicapped or an Olympic athlete, heterosexual or homosexual. The same laws and boundaries apply to all – a single law respected and honoured by all Canadians.

The issue is with regards to who the marriage partner may be and not the individual themselves, thus not a Charter issue.

The mere fact than an individual does not want to abide by the law and/or wishes to push the boundaries of the Canadian social structure to suit their own personal needs, does not make that person an advocate of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, it simply makes them a Liberal.

NOT A CHARTER ISSUE

The issue of same-sex marriage is not, has not, and will never be a Charter issue.

It is a social issue, a moral issue to be decided upon by our elected MPs, MPs elected by their constituents based on the assumption that they will represent their constituents.

Not long ago, Parliament voted unanimously to protect the definition of marriage.

NOT POLICY

Legislating same-sex marriage is not party policy, nor was it promoted for or against during the last election.

Now MPs are being bullied by a dictatorship-style agenda that will forever change the face of this nation.

It now appears it was the Liberals who had the hidden agenda.

Go figure.

Our society and our laws stipulate the definition of marriage is the union between a man and woman.

TRUTH AND A LIE

I am neither religious, nor have a marriage license, but I know the difference between a truth and a lie.

And the biggest lie thus far from this Liberal government is not the sponsorship scandal or the gun registry boondoggle, it is the fact they are brainwashing Canadians to believe the issue of same- sex marriage is a Charter issue.

The original purpose of the Charter has been misconstrued by our courts and modified to suit this government’s agenda.
