    Uruguay's Gay Marriage Law Approved By Lower House


    "Lawmakers in taboo-breaking Uruguay voted to legalize gay marriage late Tuesday night, approving a single law governing marriage for heterosexuals and homosexuals.

    The proposal now goes to the Senate, where the ruling coalition has enough votes for passage. President Jose Mujica plans to sign it into law early next year."

    Love how the southern tip of south America is turning! I Was in Uruguay last Christmas. People there (the majority) are pretty much in favor, the president is one of the most out spoken presidents Uruguay has ever had (he is an atheist).

    I feel like Dorothy in the tornado. We're suddenly accepted! Well accept for 80% of the USA, but who needs them? Blame Obama for this revolution?

    Once a great posting. At times I feel that we are truly making progress. It will not be long now that the entire Southern Hemisphere will have legal same-sex marriage. Oh, happy days!

    I don't know about the entire Southern Hemisphere, for that it'll take more like 30+ years. As of South America? I think the train will stop in Chile or so. I find it extremely hard for most countries in south America to even start a conversation. Maybe Colombia, but that will be it, in my opinion.

    In spite of being Catholic, South America is light years ahead of Africa. The irony is that they think homophobia is indigenous to Africa when in reality it's a missionary implant. African society valued and respected same sex attraction long before little baby Jesus came calling.
