Rights out, Right in Feb. 11th, 2004 08:33 pm
"The legions of 'hate-America' liberalism" [...] including the American Civil Liberties Union, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, the Democratic Socialists of America, Democrats.com...

Malaysians urged the United Nations not to issue a resolution recognizing the rights of gays and Lesbians, including that to marriage, saying Muslim countries should derail any vote on sexual human rights in the world organization.

Sunday, close to two-thousand of opponents of same-sex marriage massed [...] in one of the biggest demonstrations since the end of the Vietnam era.

"Marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a woman," [Bush] said in the statement. "If activist judges insist on redefining marriage by court order, the only alternative will be the constitutional process. We must do what is legally necessary to defend the sanctity of marriage."

Oh and I'll throw this one in for free:

Sorry but 'close to two thousand' is 'one of the biggest demonstrations since the Vietnam era'? Don't Americans believe in peaceful protest and taking to the streets?

As scary as this country is becoming, with the Government trying to push through new 'anti-terrorist laws' that basically amount to 'we don't like your face, sonny', I'd sure as hell rather be here than in the States, where at least if we disapprove strongly of Government policies or ideas, we get off our sofas and march.

Yeah, that's us liberals. We sure hate America, alright.

Oh, and Karen: the "2000 protestors" thing is NOT the largest march since Vietnam. That ignores the 100,000 protest in San Francisco against the Iraq War last year.

So it's crap reporting, then? Somehow it seemed like a ridiculously small number.
