In what appears to be the second pillar of the Cons attempt to reach out to their Taliban foes in Afghanistan the Cons are introducing legislation to see if they can’t get parliament to deny gay and lesbian couples the right to marriage. This falls on the heels of the Cons earlier attempted cultural liaison with the Taliban when they all but abolished Status of Women Canada. When Taliban leaders were queried on the Harper government’s motion they responded “it is a pity, we have so much in common but they still insist on bombing us.” Apparently Randy White has been dispatched to Afganistan to see if there is anything else the Cons could learn from the Taliban in their fight against human rights. Originally Stockwell Day was to go but he decided to stay home and work on the Cons summary execution legislation.
