From the "Will you, fer Chrissake, please just GET OVER IT ALREADY!?!?" department.

There's dogged and determined, and then there's just plain moronic (free reg. required):

Unlikely bedfellows form anti-gay marriage lobby

OTTAWA (CP) — A former Liberal MP has started a group that will spend the coming election campaign taking on candidates who support same-sex marriage.

Ontario MP Pat O'Brien — who resigned as a Liberal this year because of the marriage issue — has founded Defend Marriage Canada with a Conservative ally.

He and ex-Tory MP Grant Hill, who is a doctor, say the group will raise money, publish letters, and lobby voters to elect candidates who oppose same-sex marriage.

The Liberal government passed Bill C-38 redefining marriage earlier this year, following court rulings that the traditional definition was unconstitutional.

Conservative Leader Stephen Harper says that if elected, he would allow a free vote on whether to overturn the new law.

Critics note that to change the law, the federal government would need to invoke the Constitution's notwithstanding clause for the first time ever.

And if you rush right over to that web site, you can still sign the "National Marriage Petition" to preserve the traditional definition of one man-one woman marriage here in Canada.

Oops. Too late.
