The silent majority has spoken

Who would have thunk it, Julia Gillard and Tony Abbott agreeing on something?

Apparently both still hold some fundamentally conservative core values, as both helped defeat the same sex marriage bill in the House of Representatives today, thankfully ensuring that Australia's legal values continue to represent the wishes of the vast majority who want nothing to do with it.

Sorry, gay marriage supporters, but the reality is that most people don't care about your cause, don't like your lifestyle choice, and are not interested in seeing it intrude into their own culture and lives any more than it has already.    If nothing else, politicians can be counted on to curry the favour of their voting constituency, and 42 for to 98 against sounds like a pretty resounding sort of result to me.

"Now the federal parliament has effectively brushed the wishes of a majority of Australians aside" said some poofter with a with a vested interest, but little demonstrated skill at basic mathematics.  If you get the greenies and small "l" liberals out of the road, the polls show the majority of society isn't interested in it.

If nothing else, I'm exceedingly pleased to see this defeated, because acceptance by the state is a imposition of acceptance upon all, and it sure has hell doesn't represent my point of view on the matter.  It's also yet another further step towards legitimisation of a fundamentally deviant lifestyle, and we're way too far down that particular track already.

Homosexuality may well be further legitimised in the future, but hopefully not until after I don't have to put up with it.
