Great News from Central and South America
Two gay rights activists from Argentina, Jose Maria DiBello and Alex Freyre (right), were married in the Tierra del Fuego province of the country on Monday. Legal battles had postponed the wedding of the two men when a a judge in Buenos Aires prohibited the couple from marrying. But the Argentine Constitution says nothing about the matter, so Fabiana Rios, the governor of the southern province, supported the union of the two in her jurisdiction. The BBC reports that Bishop Juan Carlos, of the southern Argentine city of Rio Gallegos, called the marriage "an attack against the survival of the human species."
That sounds a bit over the top. Unless you believe that this gay marriage thing will catch on and heterosexual marriage will become obsolete.
