    The Gays in Spain Have Marriage on the Brain (lalala)

    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/...in663980.shtml

    Spain's Socialist government on Friday approved a bill to legalize same-sex marriages, putting this predominantly Roman Catholic country on course to become only the third country to recognize same-sex marriages.

    The bill was approved at a Cabinet meeting and is expected to be presented to Parliament in February for debate.

    "The right to marry is a right for everyone, without distinction. It cannot be understood as a privilege," Deputy Prime Minister Maria Teresa Fernandez de la Vega told a press conference after the Cabinet meeting. "The recognition of homosexuals' rights eradicates an unjustified discrimination."

    Under the bill homosexuals will be allowed to adopt children and couples of the same sex will be able to inherit from one another as well as receive retirement benefits from their working spouses in the same way in which heterosexual married couples do now.

    ====

    With this response from the Catholic Church:

    A spokesman of the Spanish Bishops Conference claimed some months ago that allowing same-sex marriages would be like releasing a virus into Spanish society.
    Spain would become the 3rd nation to allow gay marriage.

    The Biblical source of forbidding gay marriage and love are the same well that the Catholics and the Evangelical Protestants draw from. Do you think there will be a precedent that a nation as religious as Spain will pave the way for the US to follow suit?

        Muslims draw from that well too...you think Iran or Aghanistan are going to have gay marriage any time soon? It isn't about religiosity, it's about Conservatism or lack thereof. The Conservatives are in power in the US, they are not in power in Spain.

                I imagine being gay is hard enough without some dipshit telling you who you should or should not love.

                  Like I have always said, ALL people should go through the privilege of marriage and, by default, divorce, and gays are no exception.

                      The more marriages we have, the more divorces we have, and divorces make me a happy lawyer. So yay to that, may we have legalized gay divor... err, marriages in Brazil soon!

                      Although I wonder how dolphins would be able to pay my fees. Much less horses.
                      That civilisation may not sink,
                      Its great battle lost,
                      Quiet the dog, tether the pony
                      To a distant post;
                      Our master Caesar is in the tent
                      Where the maps are spread,
                      His eyes fixed upon nothing,
                      A hand under his head.
