Canadians may have free healthcare, but their doctors generally aren't as well trained as U.S. ones. Also, most people don't really care about the whole gay marriage debate. I personally don't like the idea. I have no issue with a gay couple getting the same legal rights as a straight couple. If you want to give the rest of your life to a person with whom you can not complete the reproductive cycle that keeps our species alive, that's fine. It's none of my business. I just think that marriage is a bond reserved for two people of the opposite gender. You can't just change the meaning of a word because it doesn't suit you.

How could you say that Canadian doctors aren't as well trained as American ones? You think that just because we have free health care, we just let anyone become a doctor without going to University and an assistant first?

Because the US is home to 6/10 of the top 10 Universities in the world, meanwhile Canada has 0/10, some canadian doctors are better trained but the vast majority are not.

And all of your doctors go to those 6/10 universities?

Listen to yourself, that doesn't make any sense. There are thousands of Universities across the world, and just because Canada doesn't have one of the top 10 universities means that the doctors aren't as well trained?

The only thing that determines the rank of universities is
1. the number of alumni and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals
2. the number of Highly Cited Researchers

It doesn't take into account the actual curriculum taught. So any doctor that doesn't have a nobel prize isn't worthy of fixing your broken arm?

Even if a County's quality of doctors was related to the amount of "top universities" in the country, Canada isn't far behind at having #28 in the world.

The definition of Marriage doesn't state it has to be between a man and a woman. I find it funny that thousands of years ago in the Roman empire when the kings had both male and female lovers, they were more accepting of gays then our society is now.

I support gay marriage more for legal reasons than for "male/female bond" reasons. If you plan on spending the rest of your life with someone, then filing joint taxes, being included in one's benefits, and providing healthcare decisions should be allowed. There are straight couples that get married for no other reason than it's a good financial idea.

My friends parents didnt see a point in marriage until the bought a home together. They got married because they could file a joint income tax return.
