New Zealand MP's Gay Marriage Speech Goes Viral
Found it quite funny in some parts
A day after New Zealand legalises gay marriage, an MP's impassionate defence of the bill draws roars of laughter in parliament.
An MP's hilarious yet touching speech in New Zealand's parliament about legislation that legalised same-sex marriage in the country has become an internet hit.
MP Maurice Williamson poked fun at those who opposed the legislation - which was approved on Wednesday - leaving colleagues in fits of giggles.
"I've had a reverend in my local electorate say, 'The gay onslaught will start the day this law is passed,'" Mr Williamson said.
"Well, we are struggling to know what the gay onslaught will look like. We don't know whether it will come down the Pakuranga Highway as a series of troops or whether it will be a gas that flows in over the electorate that blocks us all in."
He continued: "I also had a Catholic priest tell me I was supporting an unnatural act. I found that quite interesting coming from someone who has taken an oath of celibacy for his whole life.
"I haven't done it so I don't know what it's about."

Fantastic, haven't heard anyone say it just as well as that before.
Amazing Revision procrastination has now been justified.
