So it doesn’t matter if 75 per cent of voters in Germany support same-sex marriage. And it doesn’t matter if the ruling party is the only one in that country opposed to it. The government’s leader, Angela Merkel, doesn’t support it, you see, because she feels marriage should be between a man and a woman.
Merkel is reportedly a committed Christian, the Independent reports — well, as committed as someone who has been married twice can be. Because you know how some Christians pick and choose which so-called biblical principles they follow and which they ignore.
Merkel claims she supports civil partnerships and “is very supportive of us eliminating all discrimination,” the Independent reports.
Well, all discrimination except for not allowing same-sex couples to get married. That sort of discrimination is OK, apparently — not to mention the trickle-down discrimination that sort of oppression will cause by telling the population that gay and lesbian people should not be treated completely equally.
Merkel’s doublespeak was duly noted by one LGBT organization in Germany. Reports the Independent:
A spokesman for UK LGBT charity Stonewall said: “Can someone really support ‘eliminating all discrimination’ if they believe that same-sex unions shouldn’t be labelled as ‘marriages’? It must be a quiet week for Angela if her current concern is synonyms.”
Indeed. Merkel is getting somewhat dotty in her old age. She has been in power since 2005, and it’s obvious that time is taking a toll on her brain. If she can’t see the hypocrisy in her rationale, then one has to wonder about her ability to lead a nation.
Clearly, it is time for the 75-percent majority of people who support same-sex marriage in Germany to vote Merkel and her gang out of power, and bring in a party more in tune with the times.
