Marriage equality signed into law in Mexico City

Mexico City on Tuesday formally put on the books a law allowing same-sex couples to marry and adopt children, with Mayor Marcelo Ebrard rejecting demands he veto the controversial measure.

The law was published in the official government newspaper, and will go into effect in 45 days. It was passed by a comfortable margin by this sprawling capital’s legislature last week.

The US should be ashamed of itself!

South Africa got a black president before WE did, post apartheid.
They also got marriage equality too.

Our country isn’t learning from the model that Canada represents as far as a country with similar culture to ours is concerned.
That is to say, what the results of marriage equality would be in America is no longer a theory.

And I hate the issue being disseminated in the US as if it were.
It IS embarrassing that America doesn’t seem to be progressing the way countries we’d least expect this development to happen have progressed.

The US should stop thinking of ourselves as moral leaders. We were once, no longer.
