Freedom

Canada has become more libertarian than the US on an issue.

A bill passed in Canada’s parliament making gay marriage legal from coast to coast. The Canadian Senate is expected to pass it next week.

Somehow, I don’t think that gay marriage will cheapen or weaken or otherwise compromise the “sanctity of marriage” or whatever other bullshit secular-sounding excuse the homophobe lobby dreams up to oppose gay marriage. Nor do I subscribe to the Santorum slippery doggy slope theory, whereby gay marriage would lead to the legalization of polygamy, bigamy, bestiality, or child molestation.

And this isn’t a liberal big-government victory. Oh, no. This is a victory for that concept that the conservatives purport to glorify: individual liberty.
