Mexico's Supreme Court Declares Anti-Gay Marriage Law Unconstitutional
Mexico's Supreme Court has ruled that a law in southern Oaxaca state that bans same-sex marriages is unconstitutional, paving the way for same-sex couples to marry in that state and possibly in the rest of Mexico.

Although Mexico is one of the most Catholic countries in the world it has strict separation of church and state.
Same-sex is legal in Canada. If Mexico is next, then the U.S. needs to get its shit together--and fast.
..and Mexico is now more progressive than the USA!
Surprised this isn't getting more press over here. The ruling was yesterday.
This is an embarrassment to the USA, now flanked by two countries more progressive.
It really makes the USA look like Jesusland.
Latin America is doing almost as well as Europe.
Why don't Mexican gay rights group galvanize to challenge marriage laws in all states simultaneously so that gay marriage is nationalized as soon as possible?

I think the world is smart enough to know which parts of the US are brainless, heartless and simply worthless.
We know which parts keep us in the stone age.
R1 Spain, Portugal and Belgium and Argentina are also Catholic majority countries and have gay marriage. In fact, in gross numbers of population there are more people able to get gay-married in catholic majority countries than in the rest put altogether.
The USA and Germany are the bigoted Neanderthals of the civilized world.
