Equality Marches On

Sweden has become the fifth European Country to grant full marriage equality, bringing the world's total to seven. (Eight, if you count Nepal, which is simply waiting for it's legislture to make it official).

The list of countries and their population follows:

Norway, 4,805,437
Sweden, 9,234,209
Belgium, 10,666,866
Netherlands, 16,500,019
Nepal, 29,519,114
Canada ,33,602,000
Spain, 46,157,822
South Africa, 47,900,000

This means that approximately 200 million people now live in a country where full marriage rights are now the norm.

Equality Marches On.

YOU KNOW THAT GAY LOVE IS WRONG AND SINFUL. SWEDEN WILL BURN IN DEEPEST DEPTHS OF HELLFIRES JUST LIKE MAN WHO LAY WITH MAN AND WOMAN WHO LAY WITH WOMAN.

IF YOU MAN OF THE SO CALLED BIBLE LOVE WOULD LAY WITH WOMAN JUST ONE TIME YOU WOULD SEE THAT, THAT IS THE PUREST SAFEST LOVE OF ALL LOVES THERE IS. WHAT YOU DO WITH MAN IS DIRTY. READ THE BIBLE AGAIN BE WITH A WOMAN DIVORCE ALL THOUGHTS OF GAY-ISM. AND WE CHRISTIANS WILL REJOICE AND THEN WE CAN BE ONE WITH THE LAMB. DO YOU KNOW THE WHOLLY WRIT? LEAN IN CLOSER FOR THE WORD, HEAR IT? IT IS A WHISPER OF LOVE FROM GOD THE FATHER OF ALL THAT IS GOOD, TRUE AND HOLY. LOVE THE LAMB. SWELL WITH PRIDE IN THE LOVE OF THE LAMB OF GOD AND JESUS AND YOU TO CAN BE A DISCIPLE OF THE HEAVENS.

PRAISE BE SINNER. COME. HOLD THE HAND OF OUTSRETCHED LOVE FROM JESUS. I KNOW JESUS PERSONALLY AND HE WANTS YOU TO BE IN HIS TRIBE. TRIBE OF ALL TRIBES. NOT THE TRIBE OF HOMO LOVING DEVIL WORSHIPPING.

I am sure you all know this by now, but the marriage equality case in Iowa has been decided.

Decision will be announced around 8:30 CDT tomorrow.

Stay tuned.
