Responding the news that the gay marriage ban costs Australia over $700 million, Fanny asks:
Oh this is a tough one… Does the government hate gays more than they love money??
The answer, of course, is “yes”. Yes, the government “hates” gays more than they love money.
Or, more precisely – they love bigot votes more than they fear losing greedy votes, which they secure in other ways.
It’s a pity, really, because there are actually more non-bigot votes out there, if anyone other than the Greens would care to represent them.
