To be very annoyed by this mailshot

Have just had the worst leaflet through my door I have ever seen from "MyArea for Marriage", imploring me to write to my MP to protest about marriage becoming a genderless institution. Best claims include "Kids need a mum and dad" and "people will lose their jobs for supporting traditional marriage". Whilst I love free speech, I have never been so annoyed by my doormat.

Yanbu at all I would have fumed at that. They didn't even have the courage to knock on the door and debate it out. Spineless bigoted twunts.

Tell me about it.

I got an email from a woman at school inviting me to go to a talk by a paediatrician, a philosopher and a psychologist about the impact of gay marriage on children. Apparently, I should attend because I will be shocked by what they say.

Fucking fuckwits.

catgirl1976 Sat 12-Jan-13 12:09:22

I bet you would be shocked Greythorne

bare yup, they posted and ran

I have a no junk mail plaquard, still get pizza leaflets ....

baremadness Sat 12-Jan-13 12:12:31

Pizza leaflets....homophobic propaganda....yep that's the same

catgirl1976 Sat 12-Jan-13 12:13:10

I'm all for pizza

Not so much bigotry. Even if it comes with garlic bread

Apparantly "people will be punished for believing in traditional marriage" hmm

Sallyingforth Sat 12-Jan-13 12:13:16

... then you need a junk food placard!

ResolutelyCheeky Sat 12-Jan-13 12:22:53

In the uk marriage is a legal institution, not a religious one. Why is it so important for people to argue about something that will have no impact on them if they dont want to marry someone of the same sex?

HollyBerryBush Sat 12-Jan-13 12:35:59

There are some very odd people out there.

I've just googled 'myarea for marriage' and can't find anything on t'interweb, who are they? or is this some ramblings of a person rather than an established group?

catgirl1976 Sat 12-Jan-13 14:12:45

I removed the name of my actual area and prelaced it withh "MyArea"

It's this lot

I wouldnt give them the airspace if i were you!

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 12-Jan-13 15:01:57

That's awful!

I can't understand that way of thinking at all. I think marriage is really important,I also think everybody who wants to get married should be able to. Shouldn't even be an issue.

Can you complain to the council about the leaflets being put through letter boxes OP?

BigShinyBaubles Sat 12-Jan-13 15:02:09

Thats awful! Not even fit for the recycle bin.
A friend once told me that a woman took a petition against gay marriages into her weightwatchers meeting and asked everyone to sign it! She soon got kicked out.

Is there an alternative we can show support to? A way of reminding the fickle feckers that are politicians that non bigots also vote?

catgirl1976 Sat 12-Jan-13 15:06:38

Oh......good point bare

I will ask MN to delete

Alisvolatporpiis - I guess I support their right to hold their horrible views so I won't complain about the leaflets being distributed, but I will rant about how wrong they are

RuleBritannia Sat 12-Jan-13 15:10:42

Frankly, I would prefer to have a campaign against advertising leaflets, newsletters, pizza leaflets and anything else being pushed through our letterbox without being pushed all the way through so the letterbox closes again. Why should they be allowed to open our letterbox and leave it open for the cold to get in or warmth to get out?

Narked Sat 12-Jan-13 15:11:56

I found this on the Stonewall site.

Cantbelieveitsnotbutter Sat 12-Jan-13 15:13:12

My view on it waiting to be shot down
Reason for not welcoming / discouraging gays into religion is mainly (fluffed up into 'god says its bad') due to increase the population and therefore the number in said religion.
Now science has given a helping hand to that, what is the problem?!?

catgirl1976 Sat 12-Jan-13 15:13:48

I shall make a donation, happy in the knowledge this twunty leaflet has had an effect on my actions

Just not the one they were hoping for smile

manicbmc Sat 12-Jan-13 15:16:32

Eh? confused

We have buses round here with 'Some people are gay, get over it!' on the side.

If these idiots were putting leaflets through peoples' doors and the homophobia was replaced by race, then they would rightly be arrested. They should be for inciting hatred against gay people.

Narked Sat 12-Jan-13 15:20:52

Have just donated to Stonewall. That's another bit of a bus covered.
