    Default Government separates gay couple and sells all their worldly possessions

    You can read the full article here. The comments section is also interesting fodder.

    I remember reading the article feeling like it was a nightmare coming true. You are old and then disempowered and are blocked from seeing your loved one in the last hours of your lives.

    That "used" to be the story for elderly same sex couples but I thought in today's day and age things had changed. That this happened so recently is scary to me. The details are still coming to light.

    Why do people have to do this to homosexual people...

    Because the bible says so .

    If I wrote in the bible, does that mean society will do this?

    How you can willingly cause two people that much pain and suffering and think you're doing the right thing is beyond me.

    I'm only going to post one reply to all the "the bible/God/Church" says so, no it doesnt, homosexual acts are considered anathema, there isnt any directions about what to do about it OK?

    Dont use everything you find wrong in the world to bash Christianity, it gets tedious and to be honest it happens often enough and regular Christians who dont care too much about homosexuals or fellow travellers will start to go on the defensive, try and get a fair hearing about something like this then.

    While it's true that many Christians are somewhat neutral about homosexuals, I think you're fooling yourself if you think this is not caused by religious fundamentalism, whether directly or indirectly (as they spread their ideas).

    It's certainly not atheist groups lobbying to have homosexual rights removed. The Bible may not directly say what to do about them, but it does say it's "wrong" which leads to people doing these things.

    I hope they win their lawsuit, this is what lawsuits are intended for.

    Something like this, but not remotely as bad, happened to my dad when his girlfriend of 10+ years unexpectedly died.

    Something like this, but not remotely as bad, happened to my family about twenty years ago when my grandpa (who was actually my step-grandpa of many years, but grandma divorced him) got sick.

    This is exactly why I support separating civil marriage from religious marriage and giving both gay and straight couples domestic partnership rights.

    This is so sad and I cannot understand how anyone, regardless of their beliefs, could be so cruel. I'm glad they had their legal ducks in a row because they he will probably win this lawsuit.

    A lot of people who share my basic religious beliefs would disagree with me strongly, sad to say.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
