Norwegians Love Gay Nups

Norwegians know what’s up.

A recent survey found that 58% of the population approves of new legislation that will equalize gay marriage. Thirty-one percent, meanwhile, are against such a move, while a remarkable 11% simply don’t know or don’t care enough to answer. The majority of opposition came from the Christian Democrat Party, which should come as no surprise.

Gay groups are certainly gay over the news. Norwegian National Association of Lesbian and Gay Liberation leader Jon Reidar Øyan remarked, “We are very happy that such a large majority of the population wish to put an end to the discrimination of homosexuals and our children.”

    Hurrah indeed! The Nordic countries really are setting an example for the rest of the world to follow. Denmark was the first to legalise gay civil unions in 1990 – gay sex was actually illegal in Ireland at that time! I tip my hat to Scandinavia!
