Yes Snoopy it is all very, very dodgy. The article in question wouldn't hold up to even a cursory inquiry as it is only an opinion on law and not a real legal paper. This book: Amazon.com: 0198264887: Books Seems to have a bit more credibilty. But what makes all this controversy so very "dodgy" is that what we are talking about here is basic equality, basic human rights. It is very suspect when one needs to go through legal and mental acrobatics to justify marginalizing a segment of our society. Ironically the political party that talks about freedom and liberty, that talks about reducing government intrusion into our lives is the first group to deny those very things when it suits them. Literally none of the arguments against gays or gay marriage is able to stand up to a critical examination. Not one.
