Argentina Allows Same-Sex Couples to Marry

Argentina has become the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage.

After a reported 14 hour debate that ended today, the Senate passed the bill that gives gay and lesbian couples not only the equal right to marry, but also the right to adopt children!

President Cristina Kirchner is expected to sign off on the bill.

Thrilled.

Congrats to Argentina!

Equal Rights For All! 🙂

    Another victory for gay rights!!!!

    I often pick on the Catholics for being homophobic, but I’m not entirely right. Despite the church’s condemnation of homosexuality, here we have a Latin-American nation that allows same sex marriage. Predominantly Catholic Latin America of course, just like predominantly Catholic Spain.

    Yet the “bastion of freedom of religion” United States is still stuck on stupid when it comes to gay rights. That’s why regardless of how many problems Catholics have, there’s still nothing more bass ackwards and screwed up that this United States brand of “Christianity” and these people who identify as “Christian”. BLECCH!!

    something tells me it’s not the “catholic” part of this country that voted this in (if they voted, i don’t know)
    it’s the liberal HEATHENS that don’t “believe” their bible, or cherry pick what they claim to “believe”

    and no, girly, this is not a dig at YOU.

      Of course not!! Those catholics will keep holding on tightly to their sexism and homophobia, even though their priests molest children.

    Now that Argentina has passed this, I wonder what will happen to that country?

    • polarbear20 says:

      Probably nothing at all. Life will go on tomorrow and the next day the same way it’s been in the past. Only difference is gay people are allowed to marry now.

        Absolutely not, PB. The animals & vegitation will all die. Meteors will fall from the sky. All waterways will dry up. Disease will break out. A massive earthquake will cause the ground to open up & swallow the entire country. (Except for those who kept the faith, they get to live.) Duh!!(:

    Think I’ll go to Argentina on my next vacation. I’ve always wanted to see Iguazzu Falls. My mom’s been there and said it’s beautiful. I’ll make sure and tell everyone there that I came to visit their country because of their LIBERAL view on homosexuality.
