    Why was the deceased ever even in the priesthood?

      Probably because years ago he believed the nonsense that he was taught by the Catholic Church and, like not a few guilt-ridden gay Catholics, he decided that the priesthood was a way of copping out of being gay and burying the whole issue, only to realise, when he was well and truly trapped, that it doesn’t work.

  2. This IS a heart warming story, thank you Pink News

    Fascinating! Truly incredible and totally unexpected from a country like Columbia! It’s more enlightened than the US! As an American I must say, the US sucks for LGBTIQ people, sadly…..there is just so much ignorant religious bigotry here…you could not ever imagine how much….it is pervasive at every level of this society.

    1. Religion is a huge negative in the USA! Will be interesting to see what follows in Colombia as the Constitutional Court has said to the Government that they have to do something about legislating for recognition of same-sex relationships.

  6. I’m impressed.

    Justice prevails.

  7. Jesus must be having his cha cha dance right now, he would be very proud of Colombians. His father less so thou. Not sure about Holly spirit. But they are one and the same or …whatever. Love is love. Law is law.

  8. I amazed and impressed by this story – Go, Colombia! – but also rather puzzled too: as I’ve never heard of such a ruling in favour of opposite-sex partners (and there must be loads more), is this a rare example of gay people being granted a right that isn’t open to non-gay people?

  9. Sometimes I love my country so much where I heard things like these, there’s still hope in my country, La Colombie.
