I believe we established several years ago that Octo and JR only go grocery shopping in Norway.

I'm in my seventh decade on Earth. I know things.

I don't know, I'm not Norwegian, but I can't imagine gay rights would even be an issue there anymore.

Høyre is considered a reform party profess to the moderately conservative political tradition, adhering to the thoughts of Edmund Burke. The party is committed to fiscal free market policies, including tax cuts and relatively little government involvement in the economy. It does, however, support the continued existence of the Norwegian welfare state.

Høyre is also the only party in the Storting which proposes a reduction in public spending. The party is often associated with wealth and has historically been attacked by the left for defending the country's richest, though this argument is rarely presented any more. In contrast to the party's centre-right economic orientation, the Conservative Party's social policies are quite liberal: the party voted in 2008 for a law that recognised same-sex marriage and gay adoption rights.[12]

It is also in favour of Norwegian membership in the European Union, although stating that this is not a priority, nor realistic in the short term, as Norwegians have rejected membership in two referendums and opinion polls show that at least two-thirds of Norwegians still oppose membership.
