Argentina Senate committee opposes marriage bill

An influential senate committee did not recommend that the full Senate approve the marriage equality bill. (On-Top Magazine)

Eight members of the Senate General Law Committee joined its chairwoman, Senator Liliana Negre de Alonso, in recommending that a gay marriage bill approved in May by Argentina’s lower house, the Chamber of Deputies (la Camara de Diputados), be rejected in the Senate.

Six committee members voted to recommend the bill’s approval. Another five members advised senators to reconsider a bill rejected in May by the lower house that would recognize gay and lesbian couples with civil unions. That legislation, however, bans gay couples from adopting.

While supporters are still expressing confidence, this committee vote is believed to be influential. The full Senate will vote next Wednesday.

Some bad news and some good news: The Mormon Prophet sent a letter to the Saints in Argentina but it wasn’t as strongly worded as the one he sent to the Saints in California for the Proposition 8.
