Canada's Government Argues in Court against Retaining Normal Definition of Marriage

OTTAWA, June 11, 2004 ( - The Canadian Liberal Government has filed a new brief to the Supreme Court this week saying that allowing homosexual marriage is a must. The brief argues that providing "civil unions", which would still establish almost all marriage rights for homosexuals and, many critics warn, would diminish genuine marriage, would be unacceptable and would be challenged in court.

The brief also says, "Religious faiths have always enjoyed the freedom to refuse to celebrate marriages that are contrary to the tenets of their beliefs."
