    This week on the Counsel Of Many: a man doesn’t want to vote for George Smitherman as the next Mayor of Toronto because he married his gay partner and is now attempting to adopt. “Am I out of line for feeling this way?”

    “I’ve lived in Toronto my entire life and have seen mayors come and go. I’ve voted for various mayors for various reasons and NOT voted for other mayors for other reasons. I know the mayoral election is still quite a ways off, but I’ve just found out that one of the candidates (and a potentially good one) is not only married to his gay lover but that he’s also attempting to adopt a child with him as well. Never in my life have I been forced to take these sorts of issues into consideration when voting for mayor of this great city. I’m of a generation that just doesn’t agree with these types of “lifestyle choices” or whatever they’re calling it these days. Personally, I’m very uncomfortable voting for someone to be the leader of my city who is personally involved in so many socially divisive issues. In my daily life, I’ve been forced to accept a lifestyle that I just don’t agree with. And now I feel that if I just can’t get past the fact that this man is gay, is married, and is adopting a child into a motherless family, BY CHOICE… well I feel like I’M the bad one here. Could someone please help me understand this a little better. Am I out of line for feeling this way?”
