    Mexico is not alone among Latin American nations in doing so. Late last year, Argentina also approved same sex marriage.

    One has to ask why the US cannot get it? There can hardly be less resistance to same sex marriage than flows from the RCC, and it surely has a deeper hold on these nations than ours. Why have they been able to move past bigotry and we are flagging behind?

    I don't care what that man likes. I have no respect for him, given his history.

    Mebbe one reason that same sex marriage is now legal in Mexico and Argentina is his failure to provide authentic moral leadership to the RCC.

    Latin Americans have freedoms not known in the empire.
    The US is nothing more than a police state run by radical Xtian sideliners.

    The linked article says it was approved by the Mexican Supreme Court. Presumably it was a constitutional issue.

    Well, good for Mexico. God knows they deserved some good news.

    How misleading. I knew there was no way that Mexico as a country had approved SSM, and I was right. All this does is forces the states in Mexico to recognize the marriages of people married in Mexico City as legitimate and legally valid.

    Sorry you feel that way, Quantum Windbag.

    The Mexican Supreme Court is expected to rule on same sex marrieds right to adopt this week as well.

    The only place in Mexico that allows SSM is Mexico City, so saying the entire country allows them is misleading. This decision is no different than you getting married in California and moving to New York, you are also legally married in New York.


    In the larger scheme of things this means very little.

    Fair enough. We disagree on the importance/impact of this decision.
