Another example of a government trying to impose moral values that have no business becoming laws.  The biggest failed example of this was a US law known as Prohibition.  All it accomplished was to make a lot of criminals rich and get a lot of innocent people killed.
Luckily in this case the parliament allowed for individual opting out and the vast majority of its citizens have elected to do so.
I suspect that most if not all of my Libertarian friends are enjoying this one.  Their party has a long history of opposing such unnecessary laws which tie up resources which could be used to enforce the real criminal laws on the books.
Like the Libertarians it's not that I support immoral conduct, I just oppose making such conduct criminal.
