Thanks to the American Taliban, the U.S. continues to fall behind the rest of the world. Spain now offers same sex marriage.
Just two days after Canadian members of Parliament passed same-sex marriage legislation, Spanish lawmakers have voted to allow gays and lesbians to legally marry.
The law would make Spain only the fourth country in the world to officially recognize same-sex marriage. The Netherlands and Belgium approved same-sex marriages in 2000 and 2003.
In Canada, the Liberals’ controversial same-sex marriage legislation passed final reading in the House of Commons Tuesday. It is expected to become law before the end of July.
