    Hmm. Someone's changed their tune.

    Edit: Dreadful read this thread, granted most of the posts were made the best part of a decade ago, but still, deary me.

    I'm loving the fact one of the blokes (I assume they're a dude) earlier in the thread talking about Christian values in society is called Lord of Darkness.

    He was always a very affable chap, and struck me as being very tolerant tbh. I must say, I'm surprised about the content of his posts.

    Not surprised about Hingston's though, always knew he was a ****.

In 38/50 states, gay marriage has over 50% support from under 30s. For ages 30-44, only 11/50 have 50% support. For ages 45-65, it's only 1/50. For 65+, it's 0/50.....

    I have NEVER seen anything remotely like this by age.

    But that's not the only thing, as you say. Over the past ten years, so many people have simply flat out changed their mind. That doesn't happen often.
    That graph is incredible.

    Yea, I was surprised it was this different when I first saw it. As the conservative commentator George Will said recently, the opposition to gay marriage is literally dying.

    What's it defined as? A 2-3 year union with the very real chance one person in the relationship will **** someone else? Well worth protecting

    Edit: I'm a big fan of replying to posts from 2005 by the way.

    Australia will eventualy pass it and then claim to be the first country to pass gay marriage in the southern hemisphere and steal it away from NZ, just like we did with Pharlap.

    Kudos to NZ. A rugby nation, you see?

    You can read that any way you like.

    Nah, seriously, I think NZ was the first country to give women the vote too, wasn't it? This is inkeeping with her liberal traditions.

    Anyway well done Kiwis, not sure why they were debating a "bull", but otherwise a splendid step forward as one would expect from such a nation.

    In 30 years' time people will be embarrassed and ashamed at ever having opposed this.
