First gay marriage in Argentina

29 12 2009

And also the first gay marriage in a southern-american country. The men who are both HIV-positive wanted to get married on december 1, World Aids Days, but they were refused then. The supreme court in Argentina has not made a decision on gay marriage yet, but the Governor of Tierra Del Fuego thinks marriage is a human right, also for gays. The Roman-Catholic church has demonstrated against gay marriage in Argentina fiercely, as usual.

Gay news; Catholics to fast against gay marriage, anti-gay assault in Hell’s Kitchen and justice in Salt Lake City

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland, Maine is encouraging the State’s Catholics to take part in a 40-day prayer and fasting campaign to convince God to stop Gay Marriage. In the Netherlands the Catholic church would not even say things like that anymore for being ridiculed, the one in the U.S. seems as strict and anti-gay as the Vatican. I think that a God that made people gay, would want them to be able to get married.

In the Hell’s Kitchen area of NYC right in front of McCoys bar, a gay man and his friends were attacked in an anti-gay assault. A cigarette was thrown at them and when they turned around a man told them” Keep moving, Faggot”. words were exchanged and then the man threw one gay man against a car, denting it and punched another one a few times on his lip. That this happened in a gay-friendly part of Manhattan is a shock in itself but more so that the NYPD came and did nothing, no arrest not even taken the guy’s information. I knew cops all over the U.S treat gays badly but in Manhattan??

In Salt Lake City a gay man,D.J. Bell has been acquitted of burglary and kidnapping charges in a case jurors called a waste of time. Two kids age 2 and 4 came to their gay neighbors house because their Polynesian family Latu had a rowdy drunken party all night and the kids could not sleep and felt unsafe. When the family later found out that the kids were at the gay couple’s house, they severely beat up the gay couple. The defense team is now looking into filing charges against Bell’s attackers. It’s unbelievable this case even went to court, the Latu family should be going to jail themselves.
