Same-Sex Marriage Here to Stay (for now. . .)

Lord have mercy on us. May the Holy Family intercede for our nation that we would rediscover the true meaning of 'family'.

OTTAWA, December 7, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Canada's Conservative government's motion to re-open the debate on same-sex marriage was defeated in the House of Commons today by a vote of 175 to 123. The margin of defeat was wider than expected with fewer pro-family Liberals voting in favour of the motion unexpectedly worded to include acceptance of same-sex unions and respect for same-sex "marriages" that have already taken place under the current law.
