  1. These heteros. Always flaunting their sexuality.

      Can’t help ramming down everyone’s throats can they?

        Sprouting there sprogs out like rats expecting everyone else to pay for it.

          Oh that bit I don’t mind. Someone’s got to staff the care home when I’m too old to wipe my own arse :)

        2. Hey Dave, maybe you should pay for “it”. It might make you less grumpy and put a smile on your face.

  2. I wonder waht this idiot thinks he’s up to. The Supreme court of Canada just ruled that it is a hate crime to distribute Homophobic material . The ruling came after another Idiot in Saskachewan tried to do the same thing there.It was ruled unconstitutional and against the charter of rights and freedoms to distribute such material in Canada. I guess he is just trying to get publicity. Or a jail term whichever comes first.

  3. “Police diversity unit?”
    Sounds a tad Soviet-esque to me…

    1. yes, terribly “soviet-esque”, because the Canadian police force people to be accepting and open to everyone.. that is positively evil.

      your mother dropped you on your head when you were a baby, didn’t she.

    2. Because the Soviets were famed for their inclusiveness and celebration of diversity, weren’t they?

  4. Can anyone just calm down. Yes, the choice of wording is poor but we should definitely focus more on those actively leading their propaganda campaigns against us, eg. some radio hosts, churches, “family associations”.

  5. I rarely criticize PN but this is a poorly written and incomplete article.not enough information. Did his company pay for be leaflets. Why did the newspaper agree to distribute?
    His message is right. Traditional families are the best. Two loving parents (their gender is immaterial).

    1. He paid for it himself. Real Estate agents are independent contractors… basically franchisees.
      It was not placed in a newspaper (no idea why it say that in the PN article… nothing I can find says anything about a newspaper). This seems to have been a case of a private citizen himself paying to mail leaflets to the community around his office.

      His message, by the way, isn’t “right”. Any loving family is the best. Whether that be one mother, or one father, of two parents regardless of gender. The study he himself cited was the disproven and ridiculed Regnerus “study” which is so faulty it’s amazing it could ever have been published.

      1. Apologies. No offence meant to loving one-parent families. My statement represents a personal preference.

    Oh……so presumably, bigotry is not a “bad intention” then?

  7. Re/Max are slime. How dare they merely say that the agent’s views are his own. Re/Max should have directly said they value all families equally. I’d never do business with them.

  8. Ah, but to what specific traditions does this individual refer? The Biblical ones, which in the OT are largely polygamous ? Or Christian, the central family of which involved a single mother and, later, halg-siblings? Or the suburban US nuclear family which, as traditions go, is not all that terribly old or (given the speed with which it’s falling apart) well-established?

  9. Today’s headline: “Andrew Ciastek, Re/Max Realtor, Fired Over Anti-Gay House Brochure” http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/05/03/andrew-ciastek-remax-real_n_3209353.html

    “Andrew Ciastek was fired for “poor judgment on his personal marketing,” Christine Martysiewicz, director of internal and public relations for Re/Max Ontario-Atlantic Canada, told Xtra.ca Friday.”
