  O'Brien A Closet Homophobe, Apparently
Theocons come in all packages, I guess. Pat O'Brien has left the Liberal caucus over his objections to the gay marriage legislation.

Maybe it's just my education and committment to civil rights speaking, but I cannot understand why certain people are having so much trouble with gay marriage.

"It's because we're Christian!" they plaintively cry. OK, except that if you've actually read what Christ said (like in the beatitudes, fr'instance) you'd realize that the man would probably be fine with two gay folks getting hitched. You know, judge not lest ye be judged and all that jazz.

I mean, I understand that the Old Testament is very exciting, with all that vengeful god stuff. But I figure if you're going to call yourself a Christian, you should at least have a passing familiarity with his teachings. Just throwing that out there.

Equally irritating, O'Brien's 'moral' defection will get Tory hearts beating once more in the vainglorious hope that they can topple the government and usher in a brave new era of 'me first' politics. And of course, prevent the government from, you know, governing.

Nice move, O'Brien.
There's nothing closeted about this man's homophobia, and there hasn't been for a long, long time. I say good riddance--it's not like he's been some stellar MP, anyway. At least now Martin won't have to do backflips to keep him.
and the games continue...

Martin's pushing hard on the CPC MPs from NFLD today, I see...

Why can't they figure out that secular marriage isn't christian marriage anyway?

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
