    Yes, well done Mexico… Keep standing-up to the god-botherers!

    Yes well done Mexico – it puts Australia to embarrassment and shame and surprisenely Mexico is twice as homophobic as Australia (30 percent support gay marriage in Mexico, while it is 60 percent support gay marriage here in Australia)!!!!

  4. Way to go Mexico!

    One of the very few places I have heard of where a bigoted old man on a throne wasn’t able to use the words “hell” “immoral” and “sinful” to scare people into denying people rights!

    In the race for true equal marriage rights, Mexico just took off like a rocket powered civic.

  5. I think that Mexico is part of the North American continent. Mexico City, D.F. will be the first Latin American capitol to enact laws allowing marriage equality.
    Nonetheless, it’s a very beautiful city and a perfect setting for a wedding. It has world-class hotels and settings of kinds that will make such a special occasion memorable.
    This measure also throws dirt in the faces of people who falsely claim that the Church has a stranglehold where ever it’s in the majority; it didn’t happen in Spain, nor Belgium and it probably won’t happen in Argentina. even Cuba is mulling over the idea of equality for gay citizens.

    With the hateful attacks on gays in Uganda as only one example, this is great news. Let’s hope commons sense will prevail in Africa as well.
