someone please make the religious people go away!!!

Spanish Prime Minister-elect Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero says he is in favour of allowing same-sex marriages.

His government will draft a law to put gay unions and marriage on an equal footing, he told Spain's Telecinco television channel on Thursday.

He said same-sex marriage was a characteristic of a "modern and tolerant society".

The conservative outgoing government of the Popular Party had rejected several calls to allow same-sex marriages.

Mr Zapatero swept to a surprise victory in general elections held on Sunday.

Legalising gay unions was one of his campaign pledges.

In the interview he did not set a time-frame for the change.

Spain is an overwhelmingly Roman Catholic country and the Vatican condemns same-sex marriages.
NOBODY EXPECTS THE SPANISH INQUISITION!!:rolleyes:




yet another way america is behind of the times. also, another reason to dislike christians. "how dare you be homosexual sir, being born that way isn't natural" :rolleyes:

It's ok to believe in what you believe, but when you try to prohibit something in legislature BECAUSE of your beleifs, I see it as wrong (and I hope a lot of you see it like that as well).

If you're gay, hey, who cares. Marry whoever you want. It doesn't bother me any, so why should it bother Christians? It's not like they're trying to make everybody gay, like Christians are trying to make everybody Christians. There are going to be non-Christians everywhere. I would just hope that they realize that. :confused:

At least gay people don't go on 'missionaries'

The whole gay rights issue shouldn't be an issue at all. It's so obvious... gay people just watch different porn, that's all. They should have the same rights as you and I.

And the whole "I object to this because of my religious beleifs" excuse is BULLSHIT.

ATTENTION CONSERVATIVES AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE BECAUSE OF RELIGIOUS BELEIFS

The constitution guarantees that every citizen has a right to their own religious beleifs. Once you gain political office, you give up your citizenship, in that you can no longer let your religious beleifs influence your actions. Of course it's always there, but so is that brain tumor, and we never let that bother us, did we?



On another note, go Spain. They're becoming trailblazers.
