    What in the fuck has the Royal Wedding got to do with homosexual issues?

    The Royal Family are big homosexual employers. I'm sure some of our half brothers the bisexuals work for them too.

    The damage those wacko liberals do.

    Let's face it - she will have a quick expiry date once she has spat out an heir.

    To think there are those who would tell you that there is no such thing as a : gay agenda!" It's nothing more than right wing propaganda; giggles.

    In my opinion, that is an inappropriate time to protest... It's the opposite of anti-gay protestors at a gay funeral. Rude.

    Too right and, by the way, there is the Civil Partnership Act and endless protections for gays in every day life, far more than in many other western countries.

    "Congratulations William and Kate on your Wedding Day. We wish you a happy life together. You can get married, gay people can't. We are banned by law. We ask you to support marriage equality. Equal=Love."
    Hardly the equivalent of "GOD HATES FAGS!"

    I´m not sure why gays would want to get married in a christian way.. but hey... All the same legal rights are there with civil partnerships. I certainly wouldn´t join the protest.

    To hell with the "marriage equality" thing.... I heard on the news last night that the amount of money being spent on this pompous occasion is expected to be somewhere between $80 to $125 million dollars!! 10,000 canape's for 600 people and a formal sit down dinner for 300 people.
    If I were British...I think I would be protesting something else about this wedding !!! ..icon_rolleyes.gif

    and sales on royals related stuff are estimated to be over $1 billion this year, most of that spent in London.

    "the monarchy is already estimated to contribute £500million a year to GDP so the “royal economy” will be worth more than £1billion next year, of which up to half will be spent in London"

    I'd rather protest about not having enough raisins in Raisin Bran.

    Not as tastless as the two Moslem protests

    "Moslems Against Royals"

    and

    "Moslems Against Crusades"

    The Polic have told them to not protest outside Westminster Abbey. They're still gonna turn up.

    How embarrassing. Why do some gays always have to make it about "The Gays"?

    Because it's always in the face of gays that they are treated not as equals.

    It would be like women protesting at voting centers while men are allowed to vote while women are not.

    If blacks had the same quality bathrooms and drinking fountains as whites would be ok to make them separate like that then?

    It was done a week before the wedding. They have not even started getting the chapel ready. I heard the flowers don't start coming in until tomorrow. I don't have a problem with it. I hope that they don't do it on the wedding day.

    How totally counterproductive. The only difference between a civil partnership and marriage is that a civil partnership ceremony cannot take place in a religious setting (though blessings can and do). Otherwise in law (and in surveys of public opinion) they are equivalent.

    One of the main barriers to changing the name to marriage is the desire to (placate Daily Mail readers and) ensure that churches and other places of worship cannot be sued if they refused to carry out gay ceremonies. All this sort of protest does is fan the flames of paranoia that churches would be targeted by 'radical gay' lawsuits if religious marriage were legal, and therefore delay them further. This is the wrong way to win that argument.

    One ponders how many of the queens working inside the places, are looking forward to the Royal Wedding and a new Princess. I'm sure there are a few who give themselves more airs and graces than the real Queen herself, will be absolutly snobbish towards her, because she is a commissioner, and somehow they are better.

    Protesters just need to understand Kate is actually a fabulous drag queen. Only a gorgeous lady boy could pass off for such a beautiful English woman.

    Then why don't they do that for black people?

    It's never the time or place though. It's damaging to hold straight weddings when gays are being denied them.

    It's not exactly the same thing. Most funerals are small, private affairs. This wedding is an extremely large public event. These protestors are not holding signs saying god hates anyone or calling for the death of anyone. Most importantly, and it seems everyone is overlooking this, this protest was held today and not the actual day of the wedding. By the way some people are talking here, you would think they interrupted the wedding procession.
