Being largely to do with the pronouncements of the yellow press.

Also, I was just in the shop and the Scottish Daily Abscess Mail had a front page story about how Scotland will be the first bit to have gay marriage imposed.


Obviously, while I'm in favour of people being able to marry who they want, I'm against anyone being forced into a gay marriage simply because they aren't in a straight marriage yet. I hope that makes the situation clear.

Edit: Should have known it was the Mule rather than the Excuse - it didn't mention dead princesses. Sorry for the inaccuracy, and for the inexcusable lack of a reason to despair at the Mail. I'm sure another will come along in a few minutes.

That would be very open-minded of them. Signs of improvement, perhaps?
Possibly the whole 'imposed marriage' thing could be done by a system of drawing lots? To be humane one might be allowed say two vetos before being required to take the third option, so that nobody ends up with Anne Widdecombe or the nutter with the buses... :-)

More seriously I think a poster campaign explaining that if you think having a gay marriage or a blood transfusion or whatever will stop you getting in to the heaven of your choice then it's fine for you not to have them, but that other people might prefer to go somewhere else...
There should probably be some points system - you could reject a certain number of milliSouters worth of suitors before being stuck with the random choice.
Yes, and perhaps the really ghastly people should be required to marry each other to save the rest of the population?
There was a Conservative Party leaflet once which said that the Lib Dems are in favour of compulsory gay marriage. I asked my LD then-candidate how it worked for people who were already married, and he suggested a sort of pairing of couples so you'd end up with a four-person marriage.

This would raise its own issues - would each person end up with one ring, total, for the marriage, or would they be expected to give one to and receive on from each other member? That's three rings each. Twelve.

I can see the nation's jewellers being right in favour of this.

Might be just what we need to get the economy going.
It's good to know that there's a policy in place for that eventuality. :-)
