MP Kilgour Denounces Prime Minister's Coercion on
Gay 'Marriage' Vote
"I think it's deeply unfair to bludgeon your ministers ... into voting with the prime minister on the issue," Kilgour said in a fit of Alberta Dekleiniphobia.*
*Named after Alberta Premier Ralph Klein, Alberta Dekleiniphobia is linked to an abnormal thought pattern and fear of good looking men kissing, believed to have started in the Alberta Legislature after eating some mad cow
Kilgour is getting all huffy now, yet he knew when he ran for re-election the Liberals, his party, was going to put forward the same-sex marriage bill. I have no doubt Kilgour received a fair number of votes from people that expected they were voting for a Liberal and not someone whose views are better expressed by the Bush kissing, homophobic Conservative party run by Stephen Harper.
Lifesite says pro-family groups in Canada have launched massive grass-roots lobbying campaigns aimed at getting the message across to politicians that a decision to vote against the traditional definition of marriage will spell defeat at the polls come election time. Beyond that however, the groups are stressing that MPs who chicken out of the vote by absenting themselves or abstaining will also be held accountable. Kilgour seems to have gotten the message loud and clear.
"Yes, of course I'll be at the vote. Believe me, I've learned my lesson from that. I'll be voting against any proposed law that would change the notion of marriage to include same-sex partnerships," Kilgour said.
In Kilgour's time of need, he is obviously off his rocker, why doesn't someone organise a kiss-in at his Edmonton office. If that can't be done, then the next best thing is to email the guy a love letter. I am sure you all have a good idea as to what to say. Need a hand, visit the Canadians for Equal Marriage
