Well, That's Certainly Big of Them. Conservatives Back Down on Gay Marriage - Sort Of, In a Way, a Bit Maybe

Sorry, but I still hear that sound of knuckles dragging on the ground.

The Conservatives, we're told, have removed a provision in their policy book that defined marriage as "Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve" or something along those lines.

Now this is apparently a seismic event, a real breakthrough in the Tory psyche, an unburdening of sorts, or something.

So, what does it really mean? Why not ask Tory leadership contender, Maxime Bernier.

It’s about telling Canadians that you can love whom you want.”

They're telling us, the plebs, that it's now okay to love whom we want. It's an act of political benevolence, of sorts. "Okay, be gay if you must."

To me it's more like "we are not going to say we support same sex marriage, we just won't write down that we oppose it".
