Homosexual Marriage in Spain

This one got by me.

Last week, as the matter was coming up for consideration by the Spanish Parliament, Spaniards took to the streets by the hundreds of thousands to protest the prospect of legalizing homosexual marriage. The fact that the protests took place at all was seen as a sign of a resurgent Catholic consciousness among the people of Spain. And it seemed to be crowned with a victory as the Spanish Senate voted against the idea of gay marriages.

Alas, the Spanish Senate is an advisory body only.

The Socialist-dominated Congress of Deputies just passed the act.

See here for a news report-- along with the obligatory photo of two Spanish men smooching. Muy Macho!
