Argentina legalizes homosexual marriage

Catholic World News - July 16, 2010

In a 33-27 vote, Argentina’s senate voted to legalize same-sex marriage on July 15. Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires and other Argentine prelates had urged opposition to the measure, and 60,000 defenders of traditional marriage demonstrated outside the nation’s legislature earlier this week. Argentina is the first Latin American nation to legalize same-sex marriage.

    It's a sad day for Argentina and its descent into dissolution as a moral society.

    And the first of a traditionally catholic stronghold goes down. A moment of silence if you will.
