Anti-Gays Don't Hold Protest
The not-so-influential lobby group,
Attack Gay Marriage , uh, “Defend Traditional Marriage,” was protesting outside governement offices in Ontario last week—or so it would look at first glance. When asked about the protest, spokesperson Jack Fonseca responded “This is not a protest.” Instead, he indicated that it was a “positive rally.”
The protes—oops… positive rally included a handful of people carrying megaphones and signs with phrases like “Notwithstanding Clause: Use it, Mr. Harper,” referring to the never-before-used-in-federal-politics clause that can make otherwise unconstitutional laws legal for a period of 5 years. The pr—ositive rallyers want the clause used so they can ban same-sex marriage in Canada without facing constitutional challanges. Yeah, that’s being positive…
Now, pardon me a moment. My neighbours above seem to have stopped defending the tranquility of soundlessness. Just listen to them walking around like that! They need to be more pro-quiescent; I’m going to rally for their support.
