Canada and same-sex marriages

I can't understand the issue surrounding same-sex marriage. Who cares? Why is this even an issue? The only thing people have against it is solely based on "morality" and has nothing to do with the actual things a government should be concerned about: economics and security.

I know politicians have to kiss the asses of special interest groups, especially the vocal religious right, but for crap sake, don't they have anything better to with which to occupy their time? How about the handout (AGAIN) to Bombardier? Or the continuing escapades of Sgro?

This is nuts. They are wasting time and money on an issue that, in reality, is none of society's fucking business. I don't care if two guys want to "legalize their love for eachother" by symbolically signing a legal document and shoving rings on their fingers. Who cares?

Joke:

A guy walked into the local welfare office, marched straight up to the counter and said, "Hi... You know, I just HATE drawing welfare. I'd really rather have a job."

The social worker behind the counter said, "Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur/bodyguard for his nymphomaniac daughter. You'll have to drive around in his Mercedes, but he'll supply all of your clothes. Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You'll be expected to escort her on her overseas holiday trips. You'll have a two-bedroom apartment above the garage. The starting salary is $200,000 a year".

The guy said, "You're bullshittin' me!"

The social worker replied, "Yeah, well, you started it."
