While I was — and still am — a strong supporter of British PM David Cameron for bringing equality to same-sex couples in his country by pushing through legislation legalizing gay marriage, I am dismayed to see him now reportedly (see Daily Mail report) saying he regrets doing so — not because he feels gay marriage is wrong, but because it has cost his party support. Perhaps he is saying that simply to appease the bigots and fundamentalists in his country, you know, the “own sweat smells the best” crowd.

Mr. Cameron, you did the right thing by gay people. Because, you know, If winning an election means oppressing the rights of LGBT people, then it ain’t worth it.
