“How does gay marriage affect you personally?” Ask Goddard and Vidmar.


Bruce Hausknecht writing at CitizenLink:

Yesterday I wrote about the repercussions from the issue of same-sex marriage in the lives of Peter Vidmar and navy chaplains.

Today’s headlines concern Toronto, where sports anchor Damian Goddard was fired the day after tweeting this controversial line on his personal Twitter account: “I completely and whole-heartedly support Todd Reynolds and his support for the traditional and TRUE meaning of marriage.”

.. So Goddard gets sacked. Of course, he lives and works in Canada, which legalized same-sex marriage several years ago. That probably accounts for the speed with which Goddard lost his job. In the U.S. it would take several weeks to be fired or forced to resign, as Peter Vidmar experienced.

... So add this little story to your list of responses for the next time someone asks you: “But how does gay marriage affect you personally?”
