Not to worry peetey, lots of people don't think that gay marriage falls
under the rubrik of 'rights' - gay or normal - global or EU.
Learn to read. We are not talking about gay marriage. We are not even
talking about civil unions. We are talking about banning discrimination
due to sexual orientation in the workplace. Latvia is violating the
commitments it made when we joined the EU. Artis Pabriks, the Foreign
Minister, called this a short-sighted, populist decision that will be
"deplored - and condemned - throughout the EU." MEP MIchael
Cashman: ""Latvia must respect EU laws or she will be dragged kicking
and screaming to the Court of Justice."
That is exactly what will happen, Hui -- but LPP, a collection of
self-righteous ("paštaisni" -- that _you_ would dare to criticize
Anita's excellent Latvian skills boggles the mind!) populist slime
trying to get elected by stoking bigotry.
Kārlis Streips: "By demonstrating its absolute neglect of universal
human rights standards and European Union requirements, the Latvian
Parliament has made it absolutely clear that Latvia continues to be a
banana republic in which politicians place their own selfish and greedy
interest before any other considerations."
