Out in Africa

Posted by: Jambo / 11:28 AM

Turns out South Africa is less backwards than a majority of American states.

The South African parliament on Tuesday approved new legislation recognizing gay marriages -- a first for a continent where homosexuality is largely taboo.

The National Assembly passed the Civil Union Bill, worked out after months of heated public discussion, by a majority of 230 to 41 votes despite criticism from both traditionalists and gay activists and warnings that it might be unconsitutional. There were three abstentions.

And by a vote of more than 5 to 1? I don't even know if the city of San Francisco could manage that level of support.
