I confess to having some difficulty understanding the same-sex marriage debate. Maybe it’s because I’m an agnostic secular humanist with a philosophical opposition to marriage (which is always a nice excuse for being single). Maybe it’s because I think for every reason to get married there are three reasons not to. Maybe it’s just because the debate itself doesn’t make any sense.
The idea of equal opportunity is an important concept underlying the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Many of us proudly share the belief that, at the very least, every Canadian should have reasonably equal access to education, health care, employment, decent housing, and security.
