    QUOTE AUTHOR GOES HEREMost justices of the Supreme Court (STF) voted on Thursday (5) in favor of recognizing marriage between same-sex couples. The score is zero to seven votes in favor of marriage between homosexuals.


    I believe they're at 7 Yes votes and zero No votes at the moment with one recuse. They needed 6 to for the ruling to pass. Each of the ministers have to be given an opportunity to speak before the votes become official, as technically (although unlikely) they have the opportunity change their minds.

    Another reason to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!

    Wow, The U.S. just keeps becoming less and less socially relevant.

    It's quickly becoming a VERY backwards nation.
