My Gay Marriage Bill Will Tear Families Apart – Louisa Wall

Check out the PR brain on Louisa Wall:

The Labour MP behind the bid to legalise gay marriage expects the debate to divide grandparents and grandchildren.

With Labour MP Louisa Wall’s Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill tipped for a final reading in May, same-sex marriage could be passed into law next year.

Ms Wall said the bill [has] the potential to split families


Ms Wall said she could understand senior citizens’ reluctance to endorse gay marriage. “For many people, what they’ve seen is what they understand – and they understand marriage to be between a man and a woman.”

None of her parents’ friends were openly gay when she was a child, she said. “You just didn’t see it, growing up.”

I’m a supporter of marriage equality but these comments from Louisa Wall, if accurately reported, are just plain silly and as is usual the loopy twits who oppose fairness and equity have jumped on the band wagon and used them to try and drive a wedge.

Louisa should think more carefully before opening her mouth.
