    The Greek Orthodox Church has lost a lot of ground in Cyprus due to a lot of financial and sexual scandals, including some with a little gay twist to them. Meanwhile, it has a large expat community and is constantly trying to sell land and vacation homes, especially to Brits.

    I suspect a lot of this has something to do with those two factors.

    I think it’s more complex on Israeli rights. My understanding is that Israel does recognise foreign same-sex marriages – but this does not grant them any rights. For same-sex couples they come not from a foreign marriage but from ‘unregistered cohabitation status’.

    Yes, I think you are correct on the way in which couple receive rights, Paul.

    This subject is so strange sometimes. Some countries allow marriage but not adoption. Some US states allow adoption but zero couple recognition. Some counties give full rights but not the name.

    And they say we are the ones trying to change the definition of marriage.

    You know, Timothy, it’s ALWAYS about projection.
