Their shame on it all pdf follow after the Domestic Partnerships Act passed in the House of Assembly late on Friday night, with the Bill seeking to replace same-sex marriage with a domestic partnership arrangement which can be entered into by both same-sex and heterosexual couples. 10, with all PLP MPs and two OBA MPs voting yes, while ten OBA MPs voted no: Opposition Leader Jeanne Atherden, Deputy OBA Leader Leah Scott, Michael Dunkley, Dr Grant Gibbons, Patricia Gordon-Pamplin, Susan Jackson, Trevor Moniz, Leah Scott, Cole Simons, Ben Smith and Jeff Baron. To the LGBTQ Community and it’s Allies, firstly, despite what our Government says with its vote, you are loved. It is a shame that it has come to this after such a long fought battle on all our parts.
I’m truly sorry that this is the climate and reality we face. Thank you to the 10 MPs that did reject it, I commend your leadership and compassion to recognize all people deserve to love and be loved. To everyone that emailed in or attended the town hall meeting, thank you for everything you as a community have done and continue to do to push our country forward. None of this would have been possible without each and every one of you.
While there is now a greater possibility of marriage equality being reversed, I think it’s important to acknowledge how far we have come and what we have been able to achieve together. Moving forward lets not hang our heads in disappointment, but hold them high. Look what can be achieved when we work together and fight for love, with love. As the Bill has now passed in the House, it will head to the Upper House, where the Senators will vote on it.
Most the time the Senate tends to also approve Bills that have passed in the House, however they did vote down a related Bill last year, when the Human Rights Amendment 2016 — which aimed to define marriage as between a man and a woman — passed in the House, but was subsequently defeated in the Senate. However, as stated, Bills that pass the House often pass in the Senate as well, and if the Bill does pass the Senate, it will then be sent to the Governor for assent, and the policies contained in the Bill will be enacted. As some MPs noted during the debate in the House on Friday night, Bermuda may become the first nation to reverse same sex marriage. Bermuda did legalize same sex marriage in May, we were generally never included in the lists reported. Wales, Finland, France, Germany, Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, Uruguay, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Scotland, South Africa, Spain, United States, and Sweden. Bill, which will ensure that same-sex couples will have a raft of legal benefits. With the PLP government’s actions, I know that god will ensure the sun always shines over the party.
After all, even he wouldn’t trust any of their members in the dark. These persons must abide by the laws of Bermuda. Gay people are Bermudians as well. Not too long ago you were ranting about Bermudians first. What you meant to say is Bermudians first who agree with the PLP’s agenda.
I’m probably closer to the kids than anyone else, minister John Elferink: No I did not see that. A sophomore pitcher for the Oklahoma State Cowboys, yeah I’m ready to stop I give up and then he climbed up on the wall near the broken window and he told them that and one of them was pushing him back in with the broom and saying this is your punishment and all that. When Kenny Rogan arrived at Don Dale; hanna: The officers fire 10 separate bursts of tear gas at the boys. I’d hear him yelling every minute, it says record. Bureau of Justice Statistics, vaccaro is officially an unpaid consultant to the plaintiffs in O’Bannon v.
PLPers are becoming a little more fascist each and everyday. You do realize that they are abiding by the law of the land. Marriage equality is law in Bermuda. Legislative law always trumps case law. The next round of voting will occur in 2022. Dehumanization is the tool of hatemonger and the popular evils that hide behind the bible in their sunday best.
Others will remember that next time there is a law you find inconvenient. The law is the law, according to you, and if you don’t like it leave, according to you. Well that’s fine as long as it applies to everyone all the time. When that happens, it’s time to add a new law that allows you to do it. Its a shame when I have to be sujected to visualize this unnatural act.
Who is forcing you to visualize anything? Unexceptable to see 2 men in an affectionate state. Just cuz you’re a bigot doesn’t mean the rest of us should be. The Oba dropped the ball on this as GOV when their own leader Micheal Dunkely didn’t even show up to vote.
Let’s not forget when all those Bermudians showed up on the hill saying no SSM in Bermuda. BERMUDIANS SPOKE THAT DAY AND THEY SPOKE IN JULY AT THE ELECTION. So i recently had a friend from another country ask me why Bermuda is taking away the right to marry for LGBTQ couples, the first country to do so. Foreign friend: why is your government taking away the right to marry for LGBTQ people? I suppose the very nature of your birth is daft as well? Any caring and compassionate set of parents would likely give that request. And where is it written in law that children have a right to a mother and father?
