Same-sex 'marriage' and 'The Emperor's New Clothes'

I posted this yesterday on Bangor to Bobbio. I've simply copied and pasted.
The British Parliament yesterday voted in favour of a bill that would legalise same-sex 'marriage' in England and Wales. A majority of the Conservative Party that governs in a coalition with the much smaller Liberal Democrats, voted against the bill which still has a few hurdles to jump over before it becomes law. 
Three days earlier the French Parliament voted in favour of a similar bill, though it too has some way to go.
Hans Christian Andersen
It might be good if those who voted in favour of the absurdity of same-sex 'marriage' would either read Hans Christian Andersen's The Emperor's New Clothes or listen to Frank Loesser's musical rewriting of the story [video above] for Danny Kaye to sing as he played Hans Christian Andersen in the 1952 movie of the same name.
